Weekend Bites

Since I worked from home on Friday, I'm going to call Thursday as the official start to our weekend. We kicked it off with a special experience of attending Market After Dark to benefit the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland. As soon as Mr. H and I saw tickets being promoted, we knew we had to scoop up two. You wandered through the historic West Side Market, sampling food and beverage from participating vendors.
Being there after-hours always feels special, and we ran into several foodie friends along the way.
Some of my favorite bites of the night came from MELT Bar + Grilled, The Burnham, and Momocho. Mr. H's favorite came from Kate's Fish and The Plum. There was a nice variety, plenty of it, and good quality for a first-time event and affordable price tag of $65.
What was special about this event other than the setting was that all of the participating restaurants were teamed up with Market vendors to provide some of the product used in each dish. Signage outlined the sourcing, and it was nice to see. 

Friday brought my monthly Ladies Happy Hour in the neighborhood, which I truly look forward to. It's low-key, close by, and I've enjoyed connecting with other females in the neighborhood. This is exactly what we were looking for, the sense of community and pride, when we decided to stay and settle in Old Brooklyn

On Saturday, we headed to our friends' annual Halloween party. While our costumes were nothing creative this year, we had some fun with our "dish to pass" as you can see. 
Who doesn't love a good cannibalism joke? And the kids (and adults) loved the pretzel dogs and gummi burgers. 
Sunday was the perfect amount of relaxing, being productive, and food prep for the week at home. 

Fall is my favorite time of year, and I'm soaking it all in! How was your last October weekend?
