Atlanta – Pizza and Sword Fights

Last week we celebrated Peter’s 22nd birthday a few days early with a day trip to Atlanta. We were originally headed to Dulce Vegan Cafe, but forgot to account for the time difference between Alabama and Georgia, and sadly arrived right as they were closing. 😦

But all was not lost! When we asked where else was good to eat, they pointed us two doors down to the pizza joint Urban Pie.

After lunch, we wandered around some of the shops in the funkier part of Atlanta.

This included the highly intriguing Junkman’s Daughter store. My favorite of their window displays was the mutant corn man whose name tag read “Hello, my name is GMO”.

For that evening’s entertainment, we attended the Medieval Times show. I’m happy to say their vegetarian meal (which you choose when ordering your tickets) is entirely vegan! The arena was dark, so I took a picture of the table setting before the lights dimmed.

The meal was three courses. The appetizer was tomato soup and hummus with veggies and pita bread. The main course was a stew with brown rice, beans, and a vegetable-rich tomato sauce. Dessert was a cinnamon apple turnover (Peter’s included a birthday candle).

Peter had a great birthday trip to Atlanta and we happily went back home with crowns on our head and bellies full of veggie food.
