The sweet and salty life of two friends eating all of the foods.

What’s Happenin’ Wednesday
I bought a new water bottle this weekend at Target and I am obsessed. It keeps drinks cold for hours (supposedly 24) and can keep coffee hot ALL day. Also, love the fun patterns, even though I opted for the classic white.
Bravo to Stephanie Ganz for putting together this Biscuit Guide for RVANews. We’re super jealous of all the flaky buttery biscuts that she ate. My personal favorite: Saison Market’s chicken biscuit.
I know this isn’t new anymore but I just cannot stop listening to this song. In fact, I’m listening to it right now as I write this blog post.
Okay recent (and not so recent) grads, it is time to step up your beer game. Sorry, when you are 25, drinking a Miller Lite is only acceptable in a couple of situations. Luckily this guide will help you find an acceptable beer to drink based on your cheap college tastes.
I’m attempting to be on a health kick, and when I saw this collard wrap from Eating Bird Food, I knew I just had to try it. I did my own take on this healthy wrap this week for lunch and I am loving it! The collard green leaves are crispy and crunchy in the best possible way.
What to add to your calendar
Tonight VCU’s Massey Alliance is hosting Cheers for Charity at Strangeways Brewing Company. Grab a beer or two and support Massey Cancer Center. Ten percent of proceeds will be donated to the organization.
One of our favorite local summer beers, Ardent’s Honey Ginger, is finally being released again on June 4. Event details here — bonus points because ZZQ will be smoking all the meats.
Do you like Italian foods and classical music? Then we have the event for you! Classical Revolution RVA presents: A Taste of Tuscany, on June 1 and 2. Last year’s event sold out so if you’re interested in attending, buy your tickets early!
Broad Appètit is almost here! This food festival basically kicks off summer, and it is an event that we are extremely excited about. Broad Appètit takes place on June 5, and local restaurants will be competing for a variety of awards such as the To Dine For Award. This means you can taste small plates from your favorite restaurants for just $3. Get there early to avoid the largest crowds.
Next weekend is a big weekend for food events. Thursday June 2, through Sunday June 5, Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral will host the 41st annual Greek Festival. And each day benefits a different local charity. We love the Yahni and the Greek cheesecake! If you don’t want to fight the massive crowds you have two options: go early or try the drive-thru.
