Choirqueer and I both had a few days free last week, so we decided to go on a little road trip to Portland (no, not that one. the awesomer one that contains Boober) and Boston and meet up a bunch of PPKers while we were at it. It was absolutely fabulous.

We started our adventure in Westchester, NY and kicked it off with dim sum. We were too excited and ate everything before taking pictures, so we just got a picture of the plates. oops!
Image
but here's CQ eating the last bite of taro cake:
Image
We needed snacks for the road, of course.
Image
Portland! We went to Boobers and then went out to dinner at Silly's.
We had Buffalo tofu
Image
and because we're internet vegans, we have to take pictures of our food, so I also took a picture of boober (isn't she totes adorable??) taking a picture of our food:
Image
Water shots from our tiny water glasses while we wait for our food:
Image
CQ has a magical ability to make food appear when he goes to the bathroom. I got a magical beast called the Zombie burger and boober got a falafel burger. CQ's food (which I didn't get a picture of) was sort of like pad thai in a fried wonton wrapper.
Image
And LOOK AT OUR DESSERT!! The inside is chocolate cake, chocolate frosting, and ice cream! woahmygod
Image
Back at boober's, we slipped into a sugar-induced delirium filled with Call Me a Hole (Call Me Maybe and Head Like a Hole mash-up), Come Closer Together (Come Together mashed up with Closer), and Dawson Creek's new theme song (on Netflix).
This was my stunned and amazed reaction to hearing Call Me a Hole for the first time:
Image
And since it was pi(e) day when we left, CQ and I brought pizza (from Long Island's 3 Brother's Pizza Cafe) and mini pot pies (that I made). We had both the next morning for breakfast before we left.
Image
Oops! I didn't get a picture of the pizza!

On to Boston! We met up with some lovely PPKers at Middle East for drinks and then we moved on to Veggie Galaxy for dinner:
Image
Starting from the left: VeganFoodRocks, ndpittman, CQ, b.vicious and partner, Desdemona, voiceofraisin, and me!
Our foods (I don't remember who got what, but I got the rueben):
Image
Image
Image
For dessert, we got a whole bunch of everything and shared it all. faaaantastic!
Image
CQ had a deep emotional reaction to the deliciousness of the lemon meringue pie.
Image
Image
Meeting PPKers IRL never gets old! Everyone was so nice and wonderful and we feel like old friends. It's magical. So much love for you all <3 <3 <3 Also, can we just talk about how adorable our Jonah Hill look-a-like waiter was? And everyone at Veggie Galaxy? And how delicious the food was? It was so good we came back for brunch on Saturday morning.

So much delicious food! So many adorable and awesome PPKers! funnnnn!!

the tickets are not purchased yet but it will probably be the month of july (all month). We stay in western NJ, but my gram's in urban NJ, my brother's in CT, and the rest are just barely upstate (Orange cty) so we will be in your hood at some point! (hopefully philly too) I promise I will publicize when i have dates.

hugs are awesome, as long as you don't do that weird exactly-3-cm-from-cheek-air-kiss thing.
/derail, sorry. i do have to say that veggie galaxy looks worth the trip, though. i haven't had a reuben sandwich since providence, the day i pierced my belly, 100000 years ago.

Not pictured: the lube truck, boober's crooked boyfriends, magical sparkly fairy tea party cookies, Wu Tang bro, the overwhelming ubiquity of peacoats in Boston.

WE HAD SO MUCH FUN AHHHHHHH!!! This needs to happen again.

Thank you so much for posting CQ tasting the lemon meringue.

All that food looks amazing. It's great to be able to put faces to some more PPKers.
