sunday swap meets + eats

 
Fantastic Indoor Swap Meet, Pops Philly Cheesesteaks
After non-stop bawling under a mountain of snuggies while watching the Green Mile, I decided I needed to stop feeling bad for John Coffey ("like the drink, only not spelled the same way") and do something! And so goes the journey to the Fantastic Indoor Swap Meet... which is really more like a time machine for dusty trinkets from the 80s. Smells like the 80s too. Needless to say, I loved all the musty, tacky goodness. I'm a sucker for a good deal. I'm also a sucker for finding "treasures" in a sea of funk. Well damn, I just might be a secret hoarder...

Had some Pop's Philly Cheesesteaks on our way back home. Opted to eat in the car though, because the wind was extra violent (they must have been watching the Green Mile too). Food was deelish: veggie cheesesteak,  pork bbq grinder, fried okra. Not sure Loren liked the Okra. Can't say I blame him though. If you've never had okra before, the slimey insides can be a tad off-putting. Need to go back for their bananas foster and next time try a medley of other deep fried foods. Deep fried anything = I can die happy.
