A Weekend in Worcester

 This past weekend I went up to Worcester, MA to visit a friend. With all the restaurants in NYC  I love seeing what my friends favorite places are, but keep my expectations low, who knew Worcester had a rocking restaurant scene ? 

We started with Tapas 

I am now to converted to Goat Cheese – fried {yes} goat cheese w. honey & almonds to be exact.

Then we went to

to enjoy these:

Apparently the owner of the dessert bar was on cupcake wars

Bocado has some sister restaurants and my friend & I have already paired each up with a planned dessert so that we can try everything on Sweet’s menu {even their savory items look good}.

We went for drinks & $5 sushi afterwards with her boyfriend but we were too full to eat

The rain canceled our plans for hiking so we saw Hangover 2 & went to my beloved Target.

Ended the weekend with at Lucky’s Cafe before heading to the bus for 5 hour nap time.
