Sublime Restaurant Meet and Eat

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 25, 2010

Hey guys!

The technical issues persist on!! I thought I lost all of my pictures from the meet-up last night because I went to load them on my laptop and all I got was a memory card error. Gulp. I tried to stay calm because I know Eric would save the day- and he did! :mrgreen: He recovered the pictures this morning so now I can post!

Yesterday, Eric and I finally had a really, really lazy vacation day. It was so needed after our late night. We lounged at the hotel pool and laid under a cabana with tons of shade.

It was grand. :) We napped for most of the day. I think I nap best when I’m not trying. When I say to myself I’m going to bed to nap, I can’t…but when the conditions are ideal and I don’t feel like I have to sleep, it often comes naturally!

I don’t have food pictures…I left my camera up in the room and was too lazy to go get it. lol. I ended up having a veggie burger and sweet potato fries. Soooo good. I always crave carbs after a night of little sleep so it hit the spot!

We came up to the room late afternoon and a whole lotta TV watching was done…complete with plush white robe and alligator!!

V0011152

PS- I LOVE American television!!!!! Oh man, there are soooo many things to watch! I don’t think I would ever leave my house…haha. ;)

Finally, we pulled ourselves out of bed and got ready for the Sublime meet-up!

V0011185

Here is the group trying to smootch the rooster ;) [tip- don’t try to sit on the rooster. It is made of mosaic glass and hurts! lol]

V0011174

Everyone was so nice!!!

A table shot…

V0011167

Starting with me going counter-clockwise: Me, Lesley, Eliana, Marc, Jewel and family, Jelena, Stacey, Kelly, and Eric! :)

It was such a fun and lively group! We had a ball. :mrgreen:

Now onto the food!

Lesley and I split the Frito Misto – crispy cauliflower, sweet chili sauce, sesame seeds. Everyone raves about this as being the best dish in the restaurant!

V0011163

Needless to say, it was amazing. Picture sweet and sour chicken balls, but made with cauliflower pieces!!! So cool.

Compliments of the chef- some corn pesto ‘bread’ It was quite tasty!

V0011166

For the main course I got the Bangkok Raw – bok choy & Napa cabbage, cucumbers, peppers, carrots, broccoli, cilantro, basil, mint, garlic-ginger sauce

V0011170

I knew that I wanted to eat something very healthy for my dinner, given our wild night last night. ;) I had it with a slice of Eric’s pizza as well as the mushroom pizza given to me by Kelly and Stacey.

V0011173

YUM!

Fun fact- Pamela Anderson loves this restaurant and frequently visits.

V0011176

It was such a fun time. I am sad because I won’t be able to see these wonderful ladies for a long time! :(  I slept a solid 8 hours and feel like a million bucks today! Whohooo.

I woke up to this…

and was super excited to go for my first run along the boardwalk!!! I got up grabbed a Glo Bar and hit the road.

V0011025

I ran for 45 minutes up and down the boardwalk. It was SUPER windy out there! I have no idea how far it was, but I was going pretty fast. I stopped at CVS and got a water half way through the run that was soooo needed.

V0011024  V0011023

There were tons of people out walking and running, eating breakfast in the outdoor cafes…it was so much fun. I ran by this elderly  man and he starting clapping and cheering when I ran by…he was like whohoo! It was SO FUNNY.

Then I saw this other man walking with a parrot on his shoulder!!! So random. When I ran by, the parrot looked at me and simply said, ‘Helllllloooooo’. Yea, I almost died laughing. :mrgreen:

It was such a great run…the best part was when Taylor Swift’s song ‘Today is a Fairytale’ came on and I blasted it. Yes, I’m a total nerd, but I love that song!!!! It is great to run to. ;)

We are off to checkout and then to an outdoor cafe for a very late breakfast. We decided to skip West Palm Beach because we got a great deal on another hotwire hotel in Ft. L. We love it here and wanted to stay 1 more day! Better get going…

I will try to post later tonight in the new hotel. Enjoy your day! :)

That cauliflower looks so good. I love when restaurants have a famous cauliflower dish, you just never expect it.

So jealous of that sunny Florida weather! Right now it’s looking a bit gloomy outside…

I love the cabanas by pools! I’ve only ever seen them in Vegas and they were like $500 to rent, but I think they are the coolest things ever. I’d feel like a celeb!

It’s so nice to run by the beach in the morning before it gets too hot – so peaceful :) I need to plan a vacation like now!

Ange,

We had SO much fun, it was so lovely to finally meet you in person. I already told Marc we need to hit Toronto soon. LOL :O)

I will keep you posted on the 5K we will be doing, it was so nice to meet other local runners. :O)

Hope you keep having a great time.

BIG HUG!

LOVE seeing people walking with their parrots! People here in Trinidad also take their birds (in their birdcages!) for walks, which is so weird that I can’t imagine it happens in Florida… but if you see any, pics much appreciated ! :-)

Your vacation looks wonderful. Hope today is just as great!

I’m glad you’re enjoying your vacation! Great pictures! I had to giggle on your comment about American TV–I thought, yep, that’s why we’re so fat..LOL. Sorry, I am an American, but I do feel we have excellent tv, and watch too much of it! ;-)

Sublime looks like it was great! I have had a similar cauliflower dish at a new Italian restaurant that opened up near me. Who knew cauliflower could taste so good!

that cauliflower looks so yummy, it would be interesting to duplicate something like that.
i like the cabana you napped it, looks very inviting for a nap!

Just found your blog through healthytippingpoint.com and really like it. Was intrigued by your about page – very honest. I have a Master in Nutrition and have and still work in reseach as well as teach a nutrition class- I am not a dietitian as I wanted to reach out to more people and share the joy of healthy eating and not just focus on clinic/hospital work. Just started my own nutrition blog which is focused on balanced eating for health, wellness and happiness back in October (www.justalittlechocolate.com) and it has been so much fun!!!
Look forward to reading more blog posts!

I’m from West Palm Beach and you’re not missing much ;) Ft Lauderdale is basically the same except way more fun! I’m glad you’re enjoying your vacation! I forget people like to vacation in fl sometimes.. I’ve lived here my entire life so I take it for granted I guess

You look so happy and carefree. Enjoy your time!

A lot of American shows are available to watch online or they can be purchased on DVD (just FYI, in case you REALLY become addicted while on vacation!).

Lin March 25, 2010 at 5:57 pm

What a fabulous vacation!! The hotel, the weather, and the food all look so good…. and I think the group consensus is that we all want to know where you got your dresses! ;o)

I LOVE Sublime in Ft Lauderdale. I actually live just about 20 minutes north from there! Seeing your pictures makes me realize I need to go to the beach more often. Its amazing how life gets busy and I forget how blessed I am to live in such a beautiful place.

LOVE your blog by the way. Makes me want to start my own. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
