Thursday in Traverse City

Raj and I walked downtown, passed a team race –people dressed up themselves and a bed that they had to carry down the street!

Saw our future.

We had treats at Morsels: velvet and satin, charlie brownie, quarter cup cake and tall on taste.

Stopped by Cherry Republic and sampled jams, peanut butter, BBQ sauce (yummy!) and chocolate covered cherries.

We ate a leisurely dinner at Poppycocks, a restaurant that uses local ingredients to shape their menu. The service was super slow, but the sweet potato chips and guacamole made it worth the wait. The soups were OK, the main dishes were pretty good, but I would have been happy with multiple orders of the chips:)

Descriptions taken from their site:
