A Little Festival Fun in Atlanta - Day 2

Day two of the festival was a little rainy at first but then it cleared up and we found a nice spot in the grass (after listening to Jade Bird at another stage - she's AMAZING) where we enjoyed listening to Mipso (if you like bluegrass, check them out). I had a cup of rosé -- so fancy.
After seeing a few more bands, we escaped again for dinner - this time at Ticonderoga Club (located inside the Krog Street Market). I had this delicious cocktail - "Death is Not the End" - gin, lime, lime cordial, Cloosterbitter, Herbsaint, and salt. It was like a gimlet with a nice kick of licorice.
I couldn't pass up the Ipswich Clam Roll topped with tartar royale - just like summers in New England.
Brian (who's birthday we are celebrating early) with his "Ticonderoga Cup" - Plantation Grand Reserve Rum, cognac, sherry, pineapple, lemon, and mint. Brian said he mostly liked the cup.
The rain literally dampened our Saturday night plans, as they shifted and shortened the sets left after dinner. By the time we got back, the band we wanted to see was ending so we headed back to the hotel. In the morning we got ready for brunch (my fav!) only to find that I had booked us a nice Houston, TX. Not sure how that happened! But we quickly found a Plan B and headed back to the Krog Street Market for brunch at Superica (and it's Cinqo de Mayo - so we were on trend!). We both started off with the Black and White - cold brew and horchata - so yummy!
I had these yummy (and very spicy, for me anyway) chilaquiles with crispy tortilla strips, red chile sauce, 2 eggs sunny-side up, queso fresco, and avocado.
Today is the final day of our first multi-day music festival. It's been fun - the location is really nice (lots of shade, places to sit, good food and drinks available, and great bands). Brian is finishing out the night solo, as I am flying to Barcelona for work (via Istanbul). See you on the other side of the pond!
