Sunday my husband Dave competed in an Olympic distance triathlon in Bridgeport, Connecticut. We decided to make a little get away out of the event. We arrived in Bridgeport late Saturday afternoon, had a less than fabulous vegan meal at a non-vegetarian restaurant for dinner, and turned in early at the hotel.
We awoke to a stunning morning.
Perfect race conditions for a swim,
I got a thumb’s up from Dave on his run – this being the longest distance triathlon for him since breaking his leg last year.
15th place overall (out of 234!) and fifth place in his age group!
He was so pleased that I wanted to come with him for the race. Truth? I wanted to go because I wanted to have a vegan brunch at Bloodroot. I kid, I kid (sort of).
Bloodroot is a feminist restaurant (and bookstore) that has been around for 35 years.
Walk in, take a look at the daily menu (vegan items are marked with an “*”),
Actually – because Bloodroot is totally feminist, fabulous and communal – you grab your own coffee, water, and utensils on your way to the table. Once your food is ready, they call your name from the counter and you pick it up.
I ordered a tofu scramble
with soy sausage.
This was an excellent brunch! My omnivore husband had a 3-egg Spanish omelet and gave it two thumbs up.
