Let's chat about the weekend shall we?

Thursday night I checked out the newest edition to the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood, Toast. I'll be the first to admit that upon checking out the menu prior to my first visit I was kinda meh about it - well, I was wrong. The ambiance of the space, service and food, glorious food won me over. I will most definitely be back - it doesn't hurt that it's right down the road from my house either.

Deviled eggs (ZOMG), pan-seared chicken roulade and market fish

Friday night CK and I hadn't planned on going out, but a few beers at Nano Brew in Ohio City were the perfect night capper - I just can't get enough of the Hoppin' Frog Brewery Turbo Shandy. I don't even drink beer normally and I CRAVE this beer. We also got to catch up with Shibani, Nick, Danielle and Wes - which is always a good thing.

Saturday morning I woke up early to spin per my usual routine but those Friday night beers didn't help, not my best ride by a long stretch. It was okay though because I had a fun afternoon planned with CK in Ohio City. The sun was shining, the city was bright and there's nothing wrong with a little whiskey in the noon hour.

Brunch and cappuccinos at Bonbon Pastry & Cafe + relaxing in Market Square Park + Whiskey + Fun at SOHO including bourbon, bar snacks and fun conversations with new friends at the bar.

I LOVE SOHO Kitchen & Bar and you should too - head over to their Kentucky Derby Porch Party Saturday for plenty of fun.

My Saturday fun day turned into a Saturday night of tv and work but Sunday brought a day in Canton with MOB and my mom looking at wedding reception venues - spoiler alert, we found one, and a date. 

As exciting that that decision being made was our celebration lunch at Gervasi Vinyard & Italian Bistro was a highlight of the day. The vineyard compound is only about a mile from my mom's house but it's like you're in a different world once you step foot on the grounds. We had an AMAZING meal at the bistro with wine tastings, pizza, pasta and desserts - service was on point and I even got to take some goodies home from the marketplace gift store.

Wine tasting at Gervasi + the bistro in all its rustic charm + manga manga food + sweet tooth anyone? ZOMG the hazelnut brownies!

With villas available for overnight stays and a new wine bar in the works I recommend Gervasi Vineyard to all you Clevelanders looking for a one tank trip, long weekend or bachelorette party - this place is IMPRESSIVE. 

I know I say it a lot but this really was an awesome weekend.

Although now that I'm looking back at these pictures I'm 100% confident that I won't be losing any weight this week in my work Biggest Loser Competition - fact.


Happy Wednesday, kids!
