Breakfast was at Zest, which has been featured on the Food Network on the show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

So the food was amazing! Cheesy potatoes there are a must, plus the inside is essentially a gallery. Beautiful paintings were everywhere.
After food we did a little shopping on College Ave, where we found the very cute Über boutique. On one side of the store they have great furniture finds. Pillows, chairs, tables, vintage you name it. On the other side they have some really beautiful and unique clothing. You can check out their wares on their blog. I ended up getting an amazing Grecian style maxi dress. I'll be posting pics soon. I also was lucky enough to meet the very cute and very talented Monica of F&ML.
We went home, grabbed my computer (because remember this chic has NO WIFI) and jetted over to Starbucks quickly. Quick clothing change and then headed over to Pearl St. Pizzeria. Its on Pearl St, like you would imagine, but its sort of in an alley. I would definitely recommend it if you're downtown. YUMMY New York style deep dish, and John was a pretty great bartender.
Then we headed out to Mass Ave (Massachusetts Ave since I'm not a local). Our first stop was The Rathskeller where we heard The Shadowboxers perform. They are a band from Atlanta, and they put on hoppin' show. I love people watching when people around me are drinking and I'm not. I wish I had pictures but it was dark.
We walked around, hopped in and out of a few places and ended up at Mesh where I was given this:

This is their signature champagne cocktail. I don't remember exactly what all was in it (aside from bubbly of course), but they drop a sugar cube in it which makes it all bubbly and purdy!
All in all a fantastical weekend. I had a lot of fun with my bestie, and can't wait until she comes to explore my city with me. Laters.
AHHH! I love Zest!
I hope you enjoyed your visit :)
