Caesar salad with tempeh and shredded beets and carrots, with yerba mate, from Proper Eats, N Lombard St.
Proper Eats is serious about vegan food in a way that hasn’t historically done much for me since my preferences run in pretty much the opposite direction, but I’ve been trying to eat a little better lately and I decided to give them another shot.  And maybe it was the bike ride into town in ass-cold weather, but this was a tasty fucking salad.

Two waffles, turkey ham and something, Nutella and jam, from Flavour waffle cart, N Lombard St.
We had friends visiting from out of town at the end of last year, so we showed them as many of our favorite places in town as we could.  Turns out most of those were restaurants and other food vendors.  It was a delicious couple of days.

Maroon spray paint stencil graffiti riffing on Shepard Fairey, Ed O’Neill (presumably as Ed Bundy from Married With Children) over “DISOBEY”, N Lombard St.
There was also a graffiti of Ron Jeremy nearby with a QR code speech bubble sticker next to it, but I thought this one was more interesting.

Sign in storefront, “SHOP” and pointing index finger symbol, N Lombard St.
This is the window of a barbershop that I am not sure I have ever seen open in the last three years.

If Dave Barry saw this sign I’m pretty sure he’d shit his pants.
