Yesterday, I posted about the first day of our Chattanooga adventure at Chatty Crafty. Here’s how the rest of the weekend went down. If you missed day one and want to take a peek, it went up yesterday.
Sunday morning, the time change had us up on the early side, so we had time for a sit down breakfast at Greenlife Grocery before the show! I loaded up on tofu scramble, home fries, and Lightlife soysage. They even had a shaker of nooch on the breakfast bar! Yummmm!
What a great start to the day! It was much warmer and less windy on Sunday. It felt like the day flew by! Before we knew it, it was time to pack up and head back to Sluggo’s for dinner before high-tailing it back to Atlanta.
We got to the restaurant, and it was closed! Boo! It turns out that a lot of places in Chattanooga close or close early on Sunday.
That began our search for something open, vegan-friendly, and delicious. We asked a few folks, consulted the GPS, and ended up at a Japanese bistro on the other side of the river. There weren’t a ton of vegan options, but miso soup, a tofu appetizer, tempura veggies and vegan sushi were just what we needed to power through the two hour drive home. Their tempura appetizer usually has shrimp, but they were happy to make one for us that was all veggies.
After that, we hit the road for Atlanta! I had a really awesome time. It would be fun to head back there when I have a little more time to explore. The downtown is really cool, and I’m in love with the area near Renaissance Park. The park’s facilities building had a green roof and all sorts of eco-friendly features, and there’s a huge hill in the park where folks slide down on pieces of cardboard! Next time, I want to slide down the hill for sure.
Have any of you guys been to Chattanooga? I was really impressed!
