Find Your Euphoria

As I'm sure you are well aware by now, Puff and I like to attend approximately 290,435 events a year. So when I was awarded some free tickets to a food festival in Greenville, we promptly scheduled a late late night with our babysitter, hit the road and checked out Euphoria.
I have heard about it for years and even contemplated suggesting it as a trip with my parents, until I realized how expensive the tickets were! We attended the Friday night "Taste of the South" and the price on the tickets was $125 each! Cue the yikes!!! Definitely not going to be something we ever attend on our own dime! Especially since going into it, I was skeptical about whether or not I would even eat anything, since I'm a super picky eater.
Look at me wearing my wedges and trying to make it the Fall of Sexy Mom!
At least it was a good excuse for us to get sexed up for a date night out!
I was definitely right that I was too picky of an eater to enjoy the food much. Puff raved about a tomato pie and some sort of brisket concoction. I was able to enjoy some mac & cheese, a caramel pecan tart, and a candied bacon brownie. I ran into a few people I knew, which was awkward, because we didn't want to chit-chat on our monthly date night! That's our time!
I was pleasantly surprised by the band that evening. They were Sixwire Band and they were pretty awesome... playing mash-ups of lots of classic rock songs from Kansas to Foreigner to Poco. Puff and I lounged for a long time listening and chatting and people watching. In all, it was a sweet and fun date night. I doubt we'll run to this festival ever again, but it will have to hold us off for awhile since our next date night isn't scheduled until November!
