This weekend was a celebration! On Saturday I had one of my first experiences in ShadySide at Spoon for Megan’s birthday dinner! (They participate in Pittsburgh Restaurant Week!!) After, we paraded the birthday girl around Walnut St. I’m a fan of Mario’s in the SouthSide and was pleasantly surprised to find their is another location on Walnut. I was secretly hoping to run into one of my favorite bloggers SummerWind, who is also from the Pittsburgh area, after I saw her giving Mario’s the title of best “Post-Grad Bar.”
We ended the celebration at the Rivers Casino on Sunday morning. They have a Grand View Buffet that needs to be seen to believe! So. Much. Food. Their Sunday Champagne Brunch from 10:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. includes bottomless Mimosas and Bloody-Mary’s. It’s very popular with longer lines, go as early as you can!
Vans Warped Tour was on Tuesday and it was INCREDIBLE. So many bands, so little time. We went from stage, to stage, to stage getting to see just about every band I wanted to squeeze in for the day! My favorites tore up the stage and I saw a couple bands for the first time. My highlights were definitely seeing Yellowcard’s set (they’re much more than their popular song ‘Ocean Avenue’!!), meeting and hearing This Wild Life, and crowd-surfing during The Story So Far‘s set. Spending the day with two of my best friends, surrounded by hundreds of people that just LOVE music is a feeling that can’t be beat. I’m already feeling post-concert depression and can’t wait for next years Best Day Ever!!!
