Last night I ventured into the city and went ice skating. I actually walked from my full-time job to Manayunk and had a nice hike. It was freezing — 28 degrees F — but the cold air hitting my face was refreshing. Yes, I love winter and the cold. When I arrived in Manayunk, my attention was diverted to a restaurant. They were closed, but one of the workers gave me a menu and said they can make oatmeal and tater tots gluten free for me. Next time, I’ll have to go before 3pm. As I waited for the bus into the city, I picked up a magazine and there is an Iranian tea house in Manayunk that I want to try.
I skated without an ice walker and met some kind people. One was a photographer and took a few photos of me with my camera. We had a blast and I also had a blast taking photos of the rink.
A little snafu with trying to eat out last night. Find Me GF led to me to a GF Korean place, but when I arrived, they had foods I wouldn’t eat. I also can’t do dairy or soy for the same reasons as gluten. It was also mostly pork based and I can’t do that for religious reasons. I found the restaurant Charlie was a sinner, but after twenty minutes of waiting and no sign of a table, I left. All of the gluten free restaurants stretching from 11th-13th and Market Streets lost power and no one could dine. I ended up going home hangry and warming up a frozen dinner in the microwave. Next week I’ll just make reservations somewhere.
