Cherry Kisses

This Saturday we're going to wake up and smell the blossoms at the 1st Annual Bike the Blossoms event.

Lallygagging together with a group of friends and visitors, we'll be doing two of our most favourite things...cycling and eating! Encouraged to both cycle and eat slooowly as part of the Slow Food Movement, we'll be exploring and refuelling throughout various Vancouver neighbourhoods. There will be no energy bars or power gels on the menu, just pure yummy goodness.

In the true spirit of celebrating cherry blossoms, I'd love to stop off at the 900 West Lounge to indulge in a Chocolate Martini kissed with a splash of Cherry Brandy, but I don't believe our bike gear is considered "smart casual" attire. *grin*

*Note: Since my first chocolate martini and the many others since...Karli and I have touted this as one of the best we've ever had the pleasure of sipping!
