Date with Legends Part 1

I’ve had a lot of dates in the past week and I fully plan to give each person the awesome dedication they deserve.  Susan is the first.  Suzi is awesome and I was so excited to able to meet her down in Syracuse, NY at a local restaurant called The Clam Bar.

First, Suzi is awesome.  Not only has she scheduled a huge Boston Run Tribute in Syracuse (which gathered over 1000 runners in Onondaga Lake Park) but she has had a lot of great accomplishments I could brag about for ages…. But anyways since saying we had an awesome time would be a huge understatement, I’ll just leave it at that.

We went to a nice restaurant called the Clam Bar and Grille located in Northern Syracuse.  You would never guess from the outside how delicious this place is going to be.  It’s an easily missed spot and even googling it didn’t provide a lot of results.  (Though they do have a website).   On a Friday night, it was jam packed with people though but not the type of people you would think for a Friday night bar scene.  Most of the people there were over the age of 60.  We actually waited for close to 30 minutes but that is typical on Friday’s which all our new found friends.

I decided to order the blue crab stuffed sole…because well…I had never had that before and wanted to switch it up from my typical Salmon.  The food came out pretty quickly and was amazing.  (I know great accurate foodie terms I have).  I absolutely would recommend it.

The other important factor that I personally take into account was how filling it was.  Obviously as a runner when you pay a lot of money for food that isn’t that filling…it stinks.  This was not the case though and I left feeling pretty full.  I won’t sit here telling you I like to eat expensive restaurants that I have to eat a second meal afterwords…ain’t nobody straight outta college  trying to pay race fees can afford that.

So do I recommend The Clam Bar in Syracuse?  Yes.  It’s a local scene with great seafood, the service was great and it’s more of my style of people (ie: the older crowd…literally).

My only sad part is that I really wish I was able to buy one of these adorable coffee mugs.  (Sell them Clam Bar!)

After our lovely date at The Clam Bar, we decided to head over to Chuckle Berries a cute little froyo place down the road.  I honestly can’t tell you the last time I had froyo (it has to have been at least 6 months).  Chuckle Berries had great selection of flavors including my personal favorite cake battle and I also tried the caramel crunch.  The froyo was great and the toppings were pretty typical of a froyo place (fruit, chocolate, ect).  They also had homemade whip cream which is always half my froyo stash anyways.

How ice cream should be...as a side to my whip cream.

Graduation Festivities (Pictcha Heavy)

Where did the time go?  It was just yesterday the broski and I were getting into fist fights.  No really…we did have a few of those back in early middle school.

Halloween perhaps 2000 or 2001. Who knows...let's just say back when we LESS socially awkward...

Now if you read my blog often (when I’m at home that is-you’ll know we are kinda like besties).  Minus he is forever coming into my room when I am trying to get work done.

Well.

My brother graduated high school today.  Which is where I was all freaking day.  Was it worth it?  I’m not too sure.

Just kidding.

My high school was huge and had roughly 3000 students spread though 9-12th.  It gave both the broski and I, a good background of meeting tons of people and being little socialites.  Because we are both equally as outgoing.  Maybe.

Incase you wondered, Matt is going to school in New York too but nowhere near me.  Oh and certainly not a liberal arts school with the same uh experiences.  I guess he will be running too so that makes us semi-twinnies.  Okay no not really.  Matt is going to be attending the US Merchant Marine Academy in a few short weeks.  Similar to the Naval, West point and such, it prepares you for either going into a branch of the military or the Merchant Marines.  He wants to be Navel Fighter Pilot…but he is a lil cray cray so we will see where that goes.

Since photos tell 1000 words and I’m lazy here ya go:

To Quote Matt's senior quote "You ain't fresh as I iz"

We went to a nomtastic restaurant called Catch 21 on the VA Beach Boardwalk.  It was really good, however, it left me incredible starving after I ate. 

calmari for an appetizer

salmon...always.

Which is why we stopped for froyo.

Question for you:

  1. 1.       Are you in high school?  Excited to graduate?  Were you excited to graduate? Did you even like high school?

I actually wasn’t that excited to graduate.  I had my close knit group of 6 friends and it was tough going in different directions, but I am glad I got a way and completely did a 180 from high school.
