There was a Metafilter meetup this Saturday over on the east side. There was a grand total of 3 of us there, which is about what I expected judging from the number of MeFis nearby. It was pretty laid back. I sorta felt like I was talking too much but I suppose if I really think about it, I’m probably always talking too much. We started out at Arabica on the CWRU campus and then went to this place called the Barking Spider which was about 20 feet from Arabica. I had a Woodchuck’s there and then we went to the Falafel Cafe where a very amiable Greek man hooked my up with a hummus and kafta platter that was really good. The portion was large as well, so I had the leftovers yesterday. I stuck the last chunk of kafta in with a bunch of hummus and the leftover lettuce and tomato, double wrapped it in pita and stuck it in the oven for a few minutes. It was crunchily delicious when I took it out.
After the Falafel cafe we went to Gilly’s donut place in little Italy, which had really good crullers, despite the fact that they were yeast donuts instead of cake donuts. The more I visit the East side the more I like it. After walking back through Little Italy, I left my fellow MeFiers who were going to check out a jazz club and came home. Other than that my weekend was supermundane.
