Weekend Recap: Indianapolis!

Well its mid week and I'm finally getting back to the blog!  We had a hectic couple of days with traveling and such.  As I mentioned in my last post, this past weekend Chris and I traveled to Indianapolis (another fav Midwest city of mine and home to my fav NFL team) for my college housemate's wedding.  It was such a beautiful day and we were so happy to share in Nikoo and Jon's special day with the rest of their loved ones! 

After getting to the hotel we decided to grab a late lunch at a diner/bar across the street called Ike & Jonesy's.  The food was yummy, the beer was cold and the Colts preseason game was on so I was one happy camper!
View of Lucas Oil Stadium from our hotel room, it was so tempting to go to the first preseason game!

 Then we took a quick snooze, got dolled up and watched Nikoo and Jon say their I Do's!  I snapped a couple pictures but they don't do the stunning couple or beautiful venue (The Omni Severin) justice.

 We danced and partied the night away with the newlyweds and had a fabulous time!  As if their wedding wasn't enough of a reason to celebrate but Jon told us he got a job in Indianapolis after he graduates from law school this year!  We couldn't be more proud of him and it's just a testament to what a driven and hard working guy he is.  Plus with friends in Indy, I see more Colts games in my future (wooohooo!).

After all the festivities we were slow moving the next morning but finally got showered and checked out of the hotel.  Then we sought out a place to grab some lunch before driving to Cincinnati to meet with our wedding photographer (oh right that wedding planning thing).

After a little research (gotta LOVE Urbanspoon and Google Reviews) we decided on City Cafe.  It doesn't look like much from the outside but it was delicious!  All farm fresh foods made with true TLC.  The owner waits tables with the rest of the staff and was so nice!  Chris ordered the special: Ham and Asparagus Quiche with Corn Salad and a side of apple slices.  I ordered the Zesty Black Bean Wrap that came with homemade potato chips (SO GOOD) and a pickle.

Well that was the weekend!  Coming up I've got the last of the breakfast treats recipes I told you about along with a summer veggie side and some new Local Foodie Moments!
