So I just HAD to tell you about this little lunch place I found. I know, I already did a restaurant review this week, but for you Boston peoples, I just could NOT keep this place to myself.
It’s a little Greek place near Government Center called Zo.
The line was out the door and around the corner when I went, but was assured that the food was “absolutely authentic” so I was going to wait an eternity if it meant getting an authentic Greek gyro (there are really NO Greek restaurants in the Boston area worth even mentioning and I consider that a travesty). This place had all the typical Greek staples:
Gyros, dolmadakia, greek salads, and spanakopita…and oh yeah…pepsi. Because Coke just sucks.
After some deliberation in my head whether I wanted lamb or chicken, I went with the chicken gyro.
Oh. My. Yum. The picture does not even do it justice, let me assure you of that. The pita was thick and hot, the chicken was moist and flavorful, and with the tomatoes and tzatziki to top it off, this was the gyro of my dreams folks. Nothing short of pure awesome. Go here. Oh and did I mention they have outdoor seating? Well they do.
After being in a food happiness coma for hours, I met my friend Kristen at Whole Foods for some vegetarian sushi and shopping. I was feeling extra thirsty so I bought an extra can of WF’s knock-off root beer that tastes like dirt water. Money I didn’t need to spend.
After dinner, we walked around Legacy Place for some shopping. I had one purpose shopping and one purpose only. To buy my very first ever pair of lululemon pants. They needed to be hemmed (Lululemon does complimentary hemming btw) so the pants had to stay at the store, but apparently I just wasn’t done throwing my money away.
I had my $10 birthday coupon from Victoria’s Secret still to use so I decided to buy a pair of yoga capris that I didn’t really need just to use the coupon. Money I didn’t need to spend.
Then I saw the sale sign at Banana Republic. I should have known right then that entering the store was a bad idea. But I didn’t and I went in anyway. Everything I saw I liked, and I was having a hard time putting things back…after pawing through the sale rack hoping for that hidden gem, I saw it. A jewel-tone pink wrap dress. On sale. In my size. With no stains or rips. I took it off the rack, inspected it, held it up…and then put it back. I walked away. And then I went back. This cycle went on for about 20 minutes until finally I decided to try it on. It fit like a dream. It was only $48, but I didn’t really need it. At the last minute, I decided to buy it, at which time the salesgirl tells me that all the sale items are an additional 25% off. Score! But wait, I was planning on spending $48 anyway, so I went back and grabbed a purple button down I also had been eyeing. Money I didn’t need to spend. Oh well. At least I will get a ton of wear out of that dress.
Do you have a hard time walking away from a sale? And the question of the century…coke or pepsi?
