Hello gypsy!

30 Jun

Wednesday was a day to go play and run errands. I had a Groupon to get my eyebrows threaded and let me tell you, it was much needed. The caterpillars above my eyes were back with a vengeance!

Ah sweet relief. The girl who did my brows was so quick, it took less than two minutes. That’s what I’m talking about! Then my friend and I went to my beloved Three Amigos for lunch.

Pretty sad that this will be my last trip there since it’s become my favorite Mexican restaurant in Charlotte. I mean come on, with guacamole like this, what’s not to love?

We ordered the lunch portion of the enchiladas verdes and soon were greeted with this

Yeah, that’s the lunch portion.

Good thing we split it because there was no way in hell I could have killed it. Plus since I am now homeless, I don’t have anywhere to keep it.

Later that night, we went to Solstice Tavern in NoDa for my going away party.


NoDa is my favorite neighborhood in Charlotte due to it’s funky eclectic vibe. Add a decent mix of people including hipsters, hippies, urban dwellers, preps and more, it’s my favorite place to be. While walking down Davidson Street, you will see all kinds of art.


Solstice has a great, spacious patio that’s perfect for summer time drinking. On almost every wall outside there is a mural and I just adored the one we were sitting next to.

Woof woof indeed!

Beers were flowing and we started off with the mini corn dogs

These should be illegal. I’ve never heard of mini corndogs before but I will be keeping an eye out at restaurants for these. I wonder if they will make a hit like fried pickles are doing lately?

I got some kind of sandwich with roast beef and turkey, it was pretty unmemorable.

It was great to hang outside, drink some beers and be with friends before I leave

Hmmmmm, where will life take me? Screw that, I wasn’t pondering life, I was pondering what my next drink would be!




Add that plus a late night run to 24 hour  Amelie’s for some sweets, it was a fabulous evening!

And today? Today I feel n to the asty. I only had five beers last night, what the hell is going on? Maybe it’s because I haven’t had beer in a couple of weeks? How am I hungover still at 6pm at night? This getting older thing just sucks. But I think I need to keep it at a two to three drink limit whenever I go out drinking because nothing good ever comes out of five drinks. On the other hands, four drinks is when things start to get difficult. Ugh, priorities…..

And you know what you shouldn’t do when you’re hungover?


Never ever am I moving again in the summer, I am so over it. Luckily, a lot of my things were out of the house but I still had some random stuff laying around and had to do a final cleanup. I better get my $800 deposit back because I busted my hump cleaning today. Clorox and a hangover are not an ideal combination by the way.

Goodbye home.

Hello gypsy!

So now I sit here at my friends place catching up on Real Housewives of New York. Oh how I’ve missed the shrillness that Ramona brings to the table! Her voice doesn’t help me in the state I’m in and neither does her drama. I swear every time I watch RH of NY, I want to confront one of my friends or talk about pecking order. For dinner, I grabbed some sushi at Harris Teeter

Do you have an art district where you live?

Do you have a lot of restaurants/coffee shops that are open 24 hours?

    Mini corn dogs…yes. Definitely yes.

    I’ve always wanted to try threading, but never have.

    Mini corn dogs are the BEST and I don’t even like hot dogs. Something about that fried ass batter really does it for me. But seriously, don’t ALL things just somehow taste better in miniature? Mini burgers, mini tacos, mini pizzas…maybe it’s because I tell myself that I can eat more of it all since they are so “little.”

    Umm….i want a mini corn dog!!!

    You weren’t kidding about the eyebrow threading–yikes!
    My city is pretty artsy–we hold the world’s largest art competition every summer–but I like the “hippie artsy” area just outside of town. That’s where my Farmer’s Market is and where all the quirky coffee shops are. I basically lived in that area in college.

    Not many coffee places are open 24 hours, which is fine because I’m a senior citizen and in bed by 10.

    Oh Ramona, the queen of Renewal and Pinot Grigio.
    We have an arts fest downtown on the Riverfront every year which is pretty cool (as I remember) but I can’t really take the massive crowds and screaming babies anymore so I haven’t been in a while.
    Good luck to you gypsy woman 🙂

    Wow, that sushi is impressive considering it came from a grocery store!

    Damn skip your apartment is spotless- you better get the entire deposit back! A hangover plus clorox sounds horrifying.

    Your eyebrows look amazing- I’ve never had threading done but I’ve heard it’s fantastic. I’m kind of scared of it.

    Dude. I am the SAME WAY when it comes to hangovers. Well, maybe not after 5 or 6 beers. But I went from having one-hour hangovers to a dreaded 15-hour hangover. I don’t know what’s up with this whole getting old thing, but I want my money back.
