We couldn’t miss it, L-Dubs annual Street Painting Festival was this weekend!

I love the street painting festival because it draws a lot of attention to our downtown. And I love seeing Lake and Lucerne blocked off and filled with art, food, drink, music and tons of people!

The art, of course, was great and everything from Despicable Me and Scrabble to Jesus and Super Woman was represented.

Check out all my pics from the festival on Flickr, but below are a few of my faves, not for any particular rhyme or reason.

An interpretation of The Last Supper:

This one is in progress, but the detail was awesome:

I love the pink and purple in this one:

I made it to Relish yesterday. It opened in West Palm Beach, in the historic  Northwood neighborhood.

I can’t ignore a burger joint, so I made JP go there. I’ll be honest, though, the name makes me go ick. When I hear relish, I think of the gross green pickley stuff they offer up at hot dog stands. But once I made it to Relish, the green pickley image was gone.

In place, an offering of burgers — shrimp, beef, lamb, turkey, wild boar, buffalo, lobster & more — that you can top with any ‘relish’ you’d like. My choice for the first-time test was a classic beef burger with the drunken onion relish — sweet onions slow cooked in beer.

Along with the burger, they have fries (which come with one of their signature flavored salts, we chose truffle salt), craft beers, wine, wings and handcrafted milkshakes!

The verdict: Two yums up! Check out Relish’s website and menu here.

I love long weekends!  This Labor Day could not have come at a more welcome time … work is busy, summer is ending, football is starting, my diet is trying to improve.  Sounds like a good time to enjoy three days of no work!

I checked out the Lake Worth Playhouse this weekend, courtesy of the awesome husband.  He got us tickets to see “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare … abridged,” and it was great!  Three guys, tragedies, comedies and sonnets, oh my!  Even for those who aren’t keen on thee’s, thou’s and o’ers, I think the play would be  enjoyable.  I mean, funny is funny, right?! And it was pretty funny, thanks to the very talented actors, of course.  I couldn’t imagine getting up in front of an audience and performing, so I’m always in awe of those that can do it – and do it well!

Before the play, we stopped by Little Munich on Lake Ave.  I think it could be our ‘spot.’  You know, the place where you know the beer, don’t mind the bartenders and appreciate the (usually) clean bathrooms.  Plus, they have good beer on tap and it’s nice and cold in there.  We grabbed a beer before the play, then decided to head back after.  However, LM is undergoing a transformation in an attempt to attract more people and live music.  So, in that case, yaaay!  On the other hand, $10 cover to get in.  So, boooo!

The long weekend also included, of course, a trip over to Peanut Island.  As always, a g-double O-d time!  The people watching, the weather, the blue skies, the boat ride there and back, but most of all, the company!  Family and friends 🙂

Summer is show time! And this weekend, we got to catch G. Love and Jack Johnson in West Palm Beach.
