Happy Friday friends!
What a whiz bang week it’s been. I mean hello and HOORAY! New emojis are on their way including bacon, avocado, a hot dog, whiskey drink and a whiz bang boom, a shopping cart that I’m always looking to add to my daily shopping posts.
Okay, there may be a bit more to life than just emojis. I get you.
Last weekend was a busy one with Father’s Day, my dad’s birthday and an amazing dinner at one of Park City, Utah’s premier events of the summer, Savor the Summit. Utah’s largest outdoor dinner party shuts down Main Street Park City where 25 plus local restaurants set tables and down this mountain thoroughfare where over 1,500 diners enjoy some of the finest fare Park City has to offer, in the mountain air and under the stars al fresco style.
My man and I were hosted by the Park City Restaurant Association and were lucky to score a table at one of the most coveted tables for dinner at Handle Park City. Cocktails and hors’d’oerves were served to the pimpin’ tunes, and dinner was served family style, with wonderful wine pairings and delightful table partners we met for the first time at our long table.
This is a sampling of what you can see next year, it’s a foodie’s bucket list event if you’ve never experienced it before.
Right afterward my Smudge and I left Big Daddy and the pups at home to jet off to Houston to visit my sister and the cousins, where I’ve made a slight diversion onto Boston for the weekend for a blogging get together with friends. Check it all out on Snapchat @foodiecrush where I’ll be sharing more of my Where’s
Waldo Heidi adventure.
But enough about me, let’s get into this week’s list of Friday Faves!
