We've been wanting to step out of our little bubble for quite some time, so Christine and I went to explore downtown Phoenix. To make it a little more interesting, we decided to let serendipity lead the way. We dug through our change to find a trusty penny. Heads or tails led us down different streets and in certain directions.
We ate a delicious (and cheap) lunch at Bistro 202. Our tummies were full of lobster mac n' cheese, salmon, and creme brulee. YUM. We went on a nice, long stroll afterward. Along the way we met some friendly statues, saw some pretty gardens, checked out upcoming shows, and ended our day at Rose and Crown for a pilsner.
It's nice to step out of our usual surroundings and experience something new. We made some friends, found tasty spots to chow down, and peered up at skyscrapers. Sometimes escaping to someplace new is only a hop, skip, and a light rail away.
