Thursday was the first night of the Midpoint Music Festival and I was still feeling a little rough, so Antoine and I took it easy.
We started off the night with some dinner at Quan Hapa. I got the ramen in order to appease my still upset stomach and it did the trick! Mighty tasty, I can't wait to go back! We took it easy the rest of the night and only went to a couple of shows. But we still had a great time.
On Friday I had the day off and I was finally starting to feel better so I spent the morning cleaning, in anticipation for the arrival of Amanda and Aaron.
It must have been very tiring for Cheese, watching me clean, because he slept most of the morning. Then Amanda and Aaron arrived and we all (4 humans and two dogs) headed over to French Park for a little hike through the woods. After the dogs were properly worn out, we got ready and headed downtown.
After some tasty sushi at Fusian, we all made our way to Washington Park to check out Youth Lagoon and The Head and the Heart, which both put on great shows.
On our way out of Washington Park. We headed over to Street Pops for some tasty popsicles, then listened to Warpaint for a bit before heading to Japp's.
Good Graeff put on a great show at Japp's (they are so cute!) and I totally fell in love with their pumpkin they carved! Antoine and I finished off the night with the Kishi Bashi show at CAC (awesome!), while Amanda and Aaron went to see Murder by Death at the Taft Theatre.
Saturday morning started with Cheese jumping into our bed, being adorable and staring out the window.
After a quick breakfast at Panera, we took the dogs to Alms Park and then Ault Park for another walk through the woods to tire them out!
I think it might have work...
Then the humans got cleaned up and headed over to Barrio in Northside for some tacos and margaritas. And that's when things got really interesting. The first pitcher of margaritas tasted so good that we decided to get another...
And the tacos were delicious too. But those margaritas...so good! And we left Northside feeling all kinds of good.
We headed downtown for the final night of Midpoint and continued to drink and just got happier and happier.
And then Aaron rode a pig! (I'm pretty sure he was a rodeo cowboy in a previous life!)
And then Amanda decided to straddle two pigs, because why not!
All in all, it was a pretty fantastic weekend with some outstanding music, great times with friends and amazing food! How was your weekend?
