~ The Decoy Bride
Nick and I went to the Taste of Portage Market Fair yesterday with some friends - Amber, Joe, and Meg. It was just a few blocks down from our apartment so it was an easy walk. The fair's activities included a food court that contained mostly local restaurants, an arts and crafts show, and a classic car show.
Amber and Joe had gone last year and they recommended we visit the Corner Pocket, especially since Amber had done some detective work and found out that Corner Pocket was doing beef brisket sandwiches this year. Without a doubt, the sandwiches were divine! The meat was tender and melted in your mouth, plus they had a selection of BBQ sauces to try. I sampled the Apple BBQ sauce and it had just the right amount of sweetness.
I also ate a cream puff and tried some of Meg's fries. MMM MMM Good. :)
There were plenty of classic cars to ogle so we spent a lot of time doing that. Meg and I spent quite a few minutes drooling over a Chevy Impala, but for the most part, I lusted after this bright blue Dodge Challenger with a white racing stripe down the side. I truly think that classic Challengers, especially the 1967 model, are the prettiest muscle cars in the world and I want one.
The crafts were fun to look at too. Meg picked up a cute ring that was made from a spoon, while I picked up this little guy for $8.00( He's not turned on at the moment, but he does light up )
That afternoon, Meg and I settled into the chill of my apartment and watched The Decoy Bride
, which was definitely adorable. I definitely recommend it for anyone who loves David Tennant and/or romantic comedies. We also watched a bit of Doctor Who - Series 2 - 10th Doctor
and some episodes from How I Met Your Mother
For dinner, the whole group reunited and we went over to La Tolteca for some delicious Mexican food and some tasty drinks. I had a peach daiquiri and pork tamales. I also tried some of Joe's Chicken Mole (pronounced: "MOLE"-lay). It was a little spicier than I can normally handle, but I did enjoy the complexity of the flavor.
Then, we watched the fireworks that had been scheduled for the 4th of July, but got pushed back to August due to July's dry conditions.
It was a really great night.
