Nothing beats a chilly Fall morning like a workout followed by brunch at HipCityVeg! This little gem in Philly makes me smile every time!
I had to start with the Groothie! It is the most amazing smoothie I’ve ever had!! I try to drink them slowly but it’s impossible!!
Next, I decided to tackle the CrispyHipCityRanch sandwich. It was a m a z i n g!! Normally I would get a salad or something lighter, but this is one of their most popular items so I had to try it! It was deliciously filling and satisfying. Will definitely get it again, plus I just worked out, right??!!
Next I noticed they had hot chocolate with home-made whip cream. I decided I would come back in a bit for that and forgo my usual Soy Latte from Starbucks. Off to find the LOVE park. I have been to Philly many times, but for some reason this park never crossed my path. Once I found it, I was thrilled.
“Located across the street from LOVE Park, Your Move transforms the Municipal Services Building plaza into a giant, fantastical game board. Scattered on the plaza are oversized game pieces, including dominoes, checkers, bingo chips, Monopoly and Parcheesi, all made of Fiberglas and steel. Installed in 1996, Your Move is meant to juxtapose childhood memories with adult responsibilities.”
Walking amongst these game pieces made me feel like such a kid! I will always honor the “young” part of me, the youthful part that has a sense of adventure and optimism!
Back to HipCityVeg for my hot chocolate! It was delightful and I’ve been craving it ever since!!
I’ll leave you with a few of my favorite random pictures taken while walking around this glorious city! Until next time….
