So this past week has been insane, which is probably an understatement. My boyfriend moved in a week ago (no more long distance? yes please!) and then we were off to Indianapolis for the Indy 500. And holy wow, was there some good people watching. But I’m also pretty sure I’ve never sweated that much at a sporting event without participating in it.
ANyway, onto the more relevant stuff. We went to Milktooth for brunch and that place was chalk full of hipsters with a 45 minute wait. I didn’t even think there were hipsters in Indiana but surprise, surprise. They’re everywhere But the food was worth it. I got a Belgian waffle that had cheese on it, surprisingly good, with some pork belly bacon. SO GOOD. And my boyfriend got a strawberry rhubarb pancake with some bacon and eggs. The coffee was good apparently but I got some red rhubarb earl gray tea and it was actually surprisingly good. And the actual restaurant seems like it’s in an old auto body shop that they rennovated. Pretty dope.
But before then, we stopped by this place called Bee Coffee in downtown Indy and their honey lavender latte was AMAZING. So good! We picked up some of their beans but then in quintessential travel fashion, we left it in the rental car. Hopefully they’ll be able to send it to us since it was surprisingly expensive. It’s a little out of the way and on the edge of downtown but she recommended milktooth, probably because as a fellow hipster, we related.
Anyhow, the race was fantastic. I was a little overwhelmed by all the people and the heat but it was a great experience. I went with my brother, my boyfriend, and a friend. Definitely recommend going if you can but wear comfy shoes and something that’s light!
