a girl and football.

I'm not really a fan of football. It's just one of those sports I never could get into, yet I can't turn down an opportuntiy to go to a game. Last sunday my sister and her husband invited us to go to a Browns game with them and I was more than thrilled. To honest, I was more excited to hit up a good restaurant and chat with my sister who I don't get to see that often, even though she lives up the street.

Before the game we ate at Johhny Mango, a quaint restaurant with a cuban, vegan gluten free flare. Basically, right up my alley. Nothing beats good food and bloody marys before a game.

Then it was off to the stadium. I have to admit, I felt in the minority since I wasn't wearing any Browns attire, which that then turned into the joke of the day. In fact, I don't think I own a single article of clothing that is affiliated with sports, but I can tell you I have an entire drawer full of Grateful Dead and Phish T-shirts :)

The game was great, the Browns actually won, and hanging out with my sister and brother in law was even better. Thank you so much for taking us with you! It was exactly what I needed to prepare myself for the Superbowl. That's right folks, Jon and I will be attending the Superbowl in February 2013!! Awhile back I mentioned that Bender's Tavern (our restaurant) won the Taste of the NFL. Well, that means we get to attend the SuperBowl and prepare the winning dish, seared scallops in a sun dried tomato beur blanc. Yes, we will be working and I'm sure we'll be working hard, but we also will be attending the game and I will definitely be checking out the city since I've never been to New Orleans!


  1. OMG you and your sister look SO much alike! I can't get over it.

    Also, I hate football. Like seriously detest it.

  2. Congrats on winning the Taste of the NFL!!! That's a huge accomplishment and I'm sure you're so proud. I'm late with my congrats since I wasn't reading back then, but still... a very big deal. :-) Wish I could taste that meal; it sounds incredible.

  3. So jealous now that you will be attending the Superbowl....is there a way I can be even a helper? LOL. Have a great time there, you guys deserve it!

  4. You look so beautiful. Lucky you! My husband would be very jealous.
