Before heading to the airport, Matt and I walked to HT for some deli meat for tomorrow’s lunch and I had the best. snack. ever!

Oikos, blueberries, AgavePlus

After some chatting and a house tour, we headed uptown for dinner – to meet a big group of friends!

At Zada Jane’s!!! Everyone’s been tellling me I had to go, and I was very impressed! Go look at the menu 😉

It was so funky and cool inside –

I debated: wine/beer, wine/beer, wine/beer, but I settled on wine because I knew I’d make it last longer.

I had the True Earth Pinot – which was organic! Hoping this helps prevent a hangover :)

Matt got a Vanilla Porter, which was AMAZING!!

IMG_8910 (1024x768)

We decided to share an appetizer, and wanted the squash cakes but they had onions, so we went for the vegetarian nachoes. I had about 6-7 chips (?) and we shared the rest with the table.

Michelle + Ben let me taste their hummus + pimento cheese platter

IMG_8915 (1024x768)

For my entree I got The Chop Salad – Fresh broccoli, romaine, feta cheese, tomatoes, sprouts, roasted corn, garbanzo beans, carrots, mushrooms and parmesan croutons ~ with an AWESOME lemon dressing. Cleared my plate!

IMG_8917 (1024x768)

Matt got The No-Da Salad – Baked marinated tofu with tomatoes boil egg, artichoke hearts, avocado, roasted corn, white cheddar cheese, sunflower seeds, sprouts and organic spring mix – equally good!

IMG_8916 (1024x768)

They had Carrot Cake on the menu – how appropriate!

IMG_8919 (1024x768) 

Diana got the most delicious Fuji Apple Caramel Cake and shared a bite. Love just having little tastes of things :)

IMG_8921 (1024x768)

Our group, minus Matt, who left early to go to bed for work tomorrow :(

That place is so cute! I feel like the south has so many quaint, funky little places. The Northeast has to start getting on board!!

And – VANILLA PORTER!? That sounds amazing!! Did it actually taste like vanilla??
