#439 support your local film festival

24 Oct

So this deed is reflected by the adventures of yesterday…and it will be twinged too. 🙂

Instead of supporting the local film festival, I supported a local orchard and then a local music/food festival. The day started with meeting Shay and grabbing some Starbucks for breakfast. We then ventured our way northwest to Gilcrease Orchards (http://www.thegilcreaseorchard.org/) to pick our pumpkins! Gilcrease was a HUGE land mass where you could pick pumpkins, corn, squash, apples, tomatoes, okra, and zuccini. Shay and I stuck with pumpkins but agreed we would like to come back and get veggies/fruits. We saw girl scout and boy scout troops, couples, and families. It was a great reminder of memories from when I was younger and went to pumpkin patches/corn mazes/hayrides with my family. 🙂  

Shay and I with our pumpkins…maybe we should have taken them out of the bags! Cool photo by Shay (quite the photographer huh?)

Later on we met up and went to Bite of Las Vegas. This has been a local event that we have wanted to attend since we moved here three years ago. Finally we were able to go! We met up with our fellow friends Hilary, Danny, Josh, Brian, Kristin and her bf Pat- who was in town to visit. 🙂 There were tents from local restaurants that were selling small portions of popular items (Zabas, Hash House, Stripburger, House of Blues, Panda Express, Mac Shack, Tropical Smoothie, just to name a few), tons of kids running around (even a lost little one I tried to help before he ran away and ran right past his parents who didn’t even notice), teenage boys in skinny jeans, and just general happiness! At 6:45, one of my favorite singers went on stage- Sara Bareilles. She was simply wonderful and even performed her cover of “Single Ladies” , which I must say rivaled Beyonce. It was a wonderful time to be with friends, hear live music, and support local restaurants (Shay and I dabbled in Stripburger- a cheeseburger slider and fries combo for 3 bucks! and then some chips and queso from Zabas courtesy of Danny). 

mmm…delicous combo with delicious golden wheat beer!

So wherever you are, find a local festival or orchard. Go alone or with a friend. Support the community around you. Check out Shay’s blog for her perspective on our adeventures and see more of her photos (http://simplyshaylyn.wordpress.com/ ) Until tomorrow..
