Friday night we dressed up nice to eat out in Wooster. Wooster has a good selection of interesting (non-chain) restaurants. I love taking people out in Wooster to try out the interesting local cuisines. We don't have a ton of them, but the ones we do have are pretty great. We went to what is probably my favorite downtown restaurant, Melvin's. Melvin's is a great little brick-oven restaurant with a little niches and yummy food. I always like to take guests there. There are two weird things about Melvin's. One: it is in a building that houses two other restaurants, all owned (I think) by the same people. Two: it is never open when I want it to be. Sometimes I will show up there and it will be closed to the public for a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or something. Anyhow, it WAS open Friday night, and we all loved our meals. I had the oven-roasted salmon (my standby), Kelli had a mushroom pizza (made in the brick-oven), and Gina tried the Blue-Cheese Strip Steak (yum!)
After eating out, we were ready to go home, get into "stretchy pants," and take a walk. Since I live so close to the College of Wooster, I have learned that it is a awesome and safe place to walk, night or day. Somehow Gina convinced Tony to go with us carrying a camera, and the following pictures ensued.We stayed up late, watched a movie, and were in bed around one so that we could get up and have breakfast at Tulipan, the Hungarian Pastry Shop. I feel the need to take everyone who visits there as a way of sharing my Hungarian heritage. We had a fabulous light breakfast. As usual my favorite Greek Omlette Roll did not disappoint.
We went our separate ways for the afternoon. I spent time with Rachel and her family, who were also in town for the weekend. We went to the Hartville Flea Market, where I haven't been in forever and where I managed to buy an armload of stuff. Later we went to the closing sale of a shoe store where I managed to buy two pairs of shoes. Rachel and I then met up with Kelsey to have dinner at Friday's.
We closed down the night old school style with a bonfire at my mom and dad's. It was a busy but fabulous weekend filled with some of the people I love best!
