It was a great weekend! So, let’s get right to the recap…
Sandusky Festival of Sail
On Friday, I drove up to Sandusky with one mission: see the World’s Largest Rubber Duck.
Jeffrey brought his own personal rubber ducks with him to meet Mama Duck, which was so sweet! The duck was at the Sandusky Festival of Sail, so we also got to check out some tall ships while we were there.
But let’s be honest, the real mission of the trip was to see the duck! And she was adorable!
Friday evening, we met up with friends for dinner at the recently-opened Barrio in downtown Willoughby. We ordered the special guacamole with charred watermelon and chevre, which was the perfect summer guac!
I ordered one of the suggested tacos and then built two of my own. I’m always nervous when I make up my own creations, but these were pretty tasty! I love the mango habanero salsa. Oh, and the short rib. But not together. Make your own creation. See how it goes!
The Flying Fig
Saturday morning, I went to brunch at my favorite brunch spot in town: The Flying Fig. From the food to the atmosphere, it’s always a win.
I was having a hard time deciding between sweet and savory (the classic brunch dilemma, right?!), so I went with the loaded breakfast potatoes and cornmeal biscuit with crème fraiche and berries. Perfect carb-a-licious combo!
Partners 1980s Prom Murder Mystery
On Saturday night, Matthew and I attended a totally rad prom that took us back to 1985!
It was put on by Playhouse Square Partners and we were all involved in the action, getting to play different parts and figuring out whodunnit!
From the costumes to the décor, it was a great night and so fun to be a part of the Murder Mystery Mayhem! And Matthew got a certificate for correctly figuring out the murderer!
I also think he deserves an award for his awesome Miami Vice-like threads! We both found our outfits at Goodwill, which had exactly what we needed for a small price tag (my dress was $5)!
OK, so I think we just live in Sandusky now. We were up there for the second time in a weekend for a trip with friends to Cedar Point.
We usually stick to our tried-and-true favorites at Cedar Point, but we did discover a new thing to love: Funnel Fries!
They’re funnel cakes dough, made into fries, and dusted with powder sugar. And you need them in your life. So good! They made a hot, fun day with the kiddos a bit sweeter (we shared with the kids…sort of).
It was a fantastic weekend with food, friends, 1980s fashion, and a big duck! How was your weekend?
