[Travel / Adventures] 071. Visit Houston (part 3)
Saturday dawned a little later than Friday, which was lovely. After some coffee and chatting with April’s folks, we headed out to the mall with the top down, so that we can run some errands and also I would be able to takes the CHIKIN for the first time. Yes, it’s true, I had never eaten at Chick-Fil-A, and was amazed at the line for the place. I mean, the chicken is fantastic, but hey. I might have a different tune if I had one nearby.
April got her nails done, and I resisted the siren call of the cupcakes (which were TEXAS sized), and we then went to Charming Charlies, which is a fantastic little store that sells just accessories. And the lovely part is that everything is sorted by color. I found a bunch of lovely pieces that I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on already.
The other weird thing we ran into was The Strangest Mediterranean Festival EVER. You’d think such a fest would have hummus and gyros, and perhaps some baklava. No evidence of that, but we did have the option for Tamales, BBQ, and Kettle Corn. Is there a Mediterranean Texas that I’m missing?
And then it was time to go home and prepare for birthday dinner at Benihana’s…
