Good morning! This AM I popped by my usual hang, Bean Around the World at Main and 20th (@BeanonMain20th), for some coffee as always. Today was Record Store Day in Vancouver and the streets were a buzz and Daniela and her boyfriend John came rolling in to Bean Around the World and I was happy to surprise them with a morning coffee! They were pretty happy, maybe a little confused, but happy.
I was excited to go meet up with Mark Brand and his crew at Save on meats (@EastVanBrand & @Saveonmeats). Mark went in to the kitchen to help prepare a gluten free & veggie eggs benny for me and my #Tweettoeat journey. It was AMAZING. Served on polenta with a to die for salad with Sole Food tomatoes, quinoa & much more joyful bits. It was great to meet some of the team and enjoy some ridiculous Saturday morning conversation from Britany Murphy to dating people based on their level of IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome), to the internet cat video festival coming up this Summer. Yes, the morning was a good one. Good company, great laughs and a belly full of gluten free, veggie goodness.
Mark hooked me up with some killer Save on Meats T-Shirts, a snapback hat, a basil plant (OOO!) and some granola! Oh sweet Saturday deliciousness. I am lucky.
