Saturday was my birthday, so the otter and I made one of our trips to the rubber city to celebrate.
Our first stop was VegiTerranean, the vegan restaurant owned by Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders. I had the Warm Arugula Salad with Oven Roasted Butternut Squash, Red Onion, Sun-dried Cherries and
Toasted Pecans, tossed in a warm Maple Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette; the Italian Fritto Gardein Scallopini, and a glass of red wine. It was one of the best but most expensive meals I ever had! I’ll probably go back sometime, though I will probably have to go during lunch.
Next, we headed over to Square Records, which is pretty much the most awesome store ever. I picked up Nick Drake’s Bryter Layter, Belle and Sebastian’s Storytelling, and Dethklok’s Deathalbum, all on CD, as well as Thriller by Michael Jackson on Vinyl. I also grabbed the Trouble Books Tablature Book, which is awesome.
Next door, we went to Revival. Usually, the otter gets stuff while I stand around bored (I’m not excited about clothes shopping!), but I did find a nice cardigan. The otter bought it for me.
After Revival, we had a cup of coffee at Angel Falls Coffee, we decided that we should see the 9:30 showing of Wolverine at the Highland Theater. We got our tickets, then headed over to The Matinee for a beer before seeing the movie.
The Highland Theater was amazing. There’s actually a bar where you can sit and watch the movie, or you can go into the theater proper. I watched Wolverine: Origins while drinking Rum and Coke! Sweet.
And that wraps up another installment of jaynova’s adventures in Akron!
