All week I’ve been looking forward to a fun fall night with my ladies.
First we went to the grand opening of Freebirds World Burrito in my neighborhood.
This California-based chain is a lot of fun! The staff was super friendly and funny, the food was delicious, and the prices were reasonable. For about 6 bucks I got a burrito, chips with guacamole, and a drink. They also have a rewards card that makes every 10th entree free.
The food is very similar to Chipotle BUT with a lot more options. I LOVE that they have four different burrito sizes. I went with the Hybrid (small), and it was just about perfect. They also have different tortilla flavors. I tried the cayenne, which is their most popular, and it was actually pretty spicy! The kicker for me was the nice sticky rice: much more delicious than Chipotle’s. I chose the black beans, lettuce, pico de gallo, roasted peppers and onions, corn, fresh jalapenos, and medium salsa, but my favorite part by far was the ROASTED GARLIC! YUM!
I will definitely be coming back here.
Next we went over to Mud Pie Vegan Bakery and Coffeehouse for a screening of one of my favorite holiday movies: The Nightmare Before Christmas. It was a lot of fun. They even made Jack Skellington cupcakes for the occasion:
I enjoyed one of those adorable cupcakes with a London Fog (Earl Grey tea with steamed soy milk). They asked me if I want it “smogged.” I hadn’t heard that term yet, but apparently that’s when you sprinkle cocoa powder on top. Delightful!
Enjoy your Halloween weekend, everybody!
