Nothing special.

Grand Rapids, day 2 April 20, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — vegtastic @ 12:17 pm

Thursday, I didn’t have to be anywhere until noon, so I took another walk to find some breakfast.
I ended up at a Mediterranean place that served juice and smoothies for breakfast.
 
Enjoying my carrot juice at an outside table (Madcap Coffee across the street).
 
 
 
D’oh! Well, maybe I will go back to the hotel after all…
The food looked so good at the Mediterranean place that I went back for lunch.
 
Falafel wrap (with turnips on it) and a Greek salad (with beets on it)!
Then across the street for a cup of coffee.
 
 
Back to the hotel for some conference. They like chandeliers here…
 
 
 
After conference things, I went out to grab a quick bite for dinner. Saw some more cool things downtown.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Being unsuccessful in my search for food, I ended up back at Bartertown. I had the $2 tacos, with kidney beans, brown rice, turnips, beets, spinach, something else, and an asparagus-cilantro dressing. They were so good!
 
The opening reception was at the Ford Presidential museum.
 
 
 
 
It was way crowded, and I did not stay long… Across the river for some kung fu (lots of fun, but no pics).
After kung fu, I walked a few blocks to Stella’s, a place with good reviews for vegan food. Here are a few blurry shots…
 
 
On recommendation of the server, I had the vegan meat loaf, which was amazing! I did not finish it.

 
 
And here is what Grand Rapids looks like in the rain as you’re walking back to your hotel room…
