Day two of the festival was a little rainy at first. It eventually cleared up and we found a nice spot in the grass after listening to Jade Bird at another stage – she’s AMAZING. We enjoyed listening to Mipso (awesome bluegrass) while I sipped a cup of rosé — so fancy.
After seeing a few more bands, we escaped again for dinner – this time at Ticonderoga Club (located inside the Krog Street Market). I had this delicious cocktail – “Death is Not the End” – gin, lime, lime cordial, Cloosterbitter, Herbsaint, and salt. It was like a gimlet with a nice kick of licorice.
I couldn’t pass up the Ipswich Clam Roll topped with tartar royale – just like my childhood summers in New England.
Brian with his “Ticonderoga Cup” – Plantation Grand Reserve Rum, cognac, sherry, pineapple, lemon, and mint. Brian said he picked it for the cup.
The rain literally dampened our Saturday night plans, as they shifted and shortened the sets left after dinner. By the time we got back, the band we wanted to see was ending, boo! So, we headed back to the hotel.
In the morning we got ready for brunch only to find that I had booked us a nice spot…in Houston, TX. Not sure how that happened! We quickly found a Plan B and headed back to the Krog Street Market for brunch at Superica (and it’s Cinqo de Mayo – bonus!). We both started off with the Black and White – cold brew and horchata – so yummy!
I had these yummy (and very spicy) chilaquiles. They came with crispy tortilla strips, red chile sauce, 2 eggs sunny-side up, queso fresco, and avocado.
Today is the final day of our first multi-day music festival. It’s been a good time so far. The location is really nice (lots of shade, places to sit, good food and drinks available, and great bands). Brian is finishing out the night solo, as I am flying to Barcelona for work (via Istanbul). See you on the other side of the pond!
