Two of our favorite people recently moved out of Brooklyn for Traverse City, MI and our last three days were spent on an epic journey road tripping to their gorgeous wedding. We spent two full days in the car and only one day in Michigan but it was totally worth it to see one of my oldest childhood friends get married.
We were a bit worried about the 30+ hours we had to spend driving but it honestly ended up flying by. We had my fully-stocked i-pod, a funny book on tape, and brand new scenery outside our windows. Plus we are stupid in love with each other and probably could have just talked for 28 hours (I definitely fell asleep towards the end!) and had a good time.
Five out of six meals Friday and Sunday were eaten in our car, mostly junk food. Here were a few of the culinary highpoints…
Apples with peanut butter.
Carrots and dip.
Not one, but two, marshmallow flavored lattes!!
This total throwback.
The gas station cashier got such a kick over how excited we were to find Surge. Unsurprisingly, it didn’t taste as good as I thought it did as a kid.
We ate very well in Traverse City too. Breakaway for coffees.
Espresso that actually happened to be roasted in Brooklyn!
Lunch and drinks at Rare Bird Brewery.
Adam and I split macaroni and cheese with roasted duck and salad with roasted beets and spiced pepitas.
The food was good but the drinks were better, I had a locally brewed ale that tasted like key lime pie! Plus an apple sour beer.
Ice cream at Moomers.
White chocolate Oreo and black cherry. We actually had this twice in one day because our friends did an ice cream cake for the wedding.
Late bar food dinner at Workshop Brewery our first night in town.
Nachos with beans and ancho chicken.
I’m off to spend the day with my husband!
