Foodie Winos!

This weekend my bestie, Mel  and I went to the 2nd annual Rockville Centre Food and Wine Festival.  It was so much fun!  It was held right out in front of the train station and Cathedral.  So basically just the perfect place!  HA!

I arrived off the train...well me and a hundred other people! And met up with Mel right when it started.  The line to get in was pretty long, but eventually we made it in.  Tents were set up around the perimeter, with food vendors.  Then within that that,  were wine and beer tents.  We got the V.I.P. package so we got 12 drink tickets, and a souvenir glass and a bag of freebies on the way out.

It was food and wine overload.  But everything was sooo good!!  We ate sliders, Mexican, Meatballs!  Mel ate some popcorn, I tried some sushi! We tried a few samples of the beer, than spent the rest of our drink tickets on two  (full) glasses of wine, while we listened to the music.  Sometimes a DJ, sometimes a guy on a guitar...my fave!

The weather was really good for the day...cloudy, not too hot.  And for the most part it stayed dry...until it didn't!!  When it started raining, we went under the V.I. P. tent to stay dry.  #that'showweroll!  We waited out the rain under the tent for a little, enjoying the music, thinking the rain would stop.  When it didn't, we thought, "a little rain never hurt anybody",  So we headed to a bar nearby to get a drink before I headed home.  We were having such a fun time chatting it up with all the other food and winos who were escaping the rain, that I didn't get on my intended train home.

When I finally got on a train, it was late!!  Booo!!  So I ended up missing my connecting train on the other side!  Double boo!  It was raining and I was cold, but I was watching Bloodline on my phone, so it was all good!! Side note: I'm obsessed with Bloodline!  Anyone else??  I already finished the season...it's a must watch!!  Totally CRAY!!

What a great day!  I love that my bestie and I live in such fun towns!  And we do such fun things!!  I can't wait to go back again next year!!

Some pics from the day!!
The cathedral is getting redone on the outside!  I thought this was a really cool pic with the scaffolding and the dark clouds rolling in!  We felt sorry for the people at five o'clock mass who were probably hearing the music and chaos!

Pouring Rain...This guy was really good!!
