Brown Betty Dessert Boutique for cupcakes! It's not a real trip with out some cupcakes to sample. I had a sweet potato cupcake, it was very good but also very dense like pound cake. Stella wanted to try it as well.
Saturday afternoon we went to a Phillies game. I really like the sports situation Philly has going on, all the stadiums are a block apart in this big sports plex. Traffic must suck when there are multiple games going on though. I was excited to visit Lincoln Financial Field and cross it off my "Visit every baseball stadium in the US" list.
For dinner we went to a place I read about in Bon Apetit's top 100 new restaurants of 2012 list, Alla Spina. It was an interesting place. We ordered a scallops appetizer that ended up being raw (which was unsettling). I had the swordfish BLT for my entree and that was delicious! They had some more adventurous items on the menu such as an entire pig's head, but we passed on those. For dessert we split a choco taco and a pudding version of a s'more. Both were amazingly decadent and really hit the spot for this chocolate lover. They now have an apple strudel with sailor jerry zabione that also sounds like it would rock my world (can you tell I love dessert?!).
The next morning we got up for some breakfast at Jesse's coffee place, One Shot. I had a pretty amazing latte and a macaron with my breakfast sandwich. This place is run really well and, i have a feeling, way too cool for me. I definitely could have sat there forever if there hadn't been a line for our seats!
Sunday afternoon we went on a winery crawl of sorts. We hit up a bunch of Leigh Vally wineries and tasted lots of wine. I bought a few bottles of holiday wine meant to be warmed before drinking (for Christmas) as well as a couple to bring home with me for my occasional glass of wine. It was a really great way to spend the afternoon, but it was a bit outside of Philly.
