Here We Go "Loop"y Loo

Here we go Loopy Light. Here we go Loopy Loo, all on a Saturday night! Ha! Some friends along with David and I, met at St. Louis' University City Loop today for some good food and good company! For those out-of-towners, it's a 6 city block food and entertainment section of St. Louis that is super trendy and perfect for people watching. : )

We had previously decided on lunch at a fabulous little Pizza joint, Pi. Melissa and Jeannie have been raving about this place for awhile now, so I'm excited we finally got to try it out!

The restaurant is situated right across the street from The Pageant Theater, where David and I got to see Lewis Black and Mitch Hedberg many years ago {hilarious!}.

David and I split a thick, cornmeal crust pizza that is similar in flavor and shape to the famed Chicago style kind. It was delish! And not a bite was spared.

Next we headed down to a place that serves Chinese bubble tea! Um, I was totally unaware such a thing existed. {Am I living under a rock, please tell me you all haven't heard of this???}

There are like a billion flavors that you can get and you are also able to have these little edible boba beads in the bottom that are gummy and black. I know it sounds gross, but it was actually rather unique! Thanks to Jeannie, Lauren, and Ben for introducing me to this new type of drink.

I didn't get too adventurous and stayed with a regular black boba tea, but Melissa's student teacher Ben, had a pretty intense green apple snow boba drink {say that three times fast!}. Too much flavor for this girl!

My safe boba black tea drink!

Ben's drink

And you can bet that David was none too adventurous for this sort of thing! But he was still cute enough for a photo op.

On our way back I snapped some fun pictures of random things, like this sweet pink bike!

Also, the old Tivoli theatre:

And a place that mimics the super trendy Pinkberry frozen yogurt shop that I must try asap!

We had a spectacular day spent with great people and super nice weather! Ahhh, how I love weekends. Hope you guys are having a nice one, too! : )

I LOVE bubble tea!!! My bestest in NYC introduced me to it about 5 years ago and I can't find it anywhere in small town alabama. I always get peach tea with the boba beads. I am not adventurous, and hesitated ever trying it, but so glad I did!

This may be totally random but I am new to your blog and wanted to tell you beautiful and fun I think your house is! I was wondering if you could tell me where you got those great matching chairs in your living room from?? My husband and I will be moving into our new home at the end of this week and I am desperate to find some new, fun furniture for the place!

Kristin, Those chairs were from Overstock awhile back. They usually have free or almost free shipping and lots of fun things to choose from!
