Getting Nourished by Nourish Restaurant of Lexington

As Winslowshire is a Renaissance Festival that Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary hosts – it was a very difficult challenge to find a vegetarian food vendor who would not only satisfy the farm rules/regulations of having no meat on site, but to also feed many festival patrons and Renaissance Faire goers who are used to getting meat items at other Festivals.

It took us a while, but we found Nourish Restaurant in Lexington, MA (http://www.nourishlexington.com) who not only has fabulous food at the restaurant in Lexington but they were also able to come up with an fabulous tasty menu that exceeded all of our expectations with great vegetarian options such as: Falafel wrap sandwiches, Vegetarian Chili (oh, and btw, I am not a huge fan of spicy food, but hubby is, and it was not too hot for me, and just tasty enough for him!),  Salad wraps and Ice Teas with some sodas!

They have live music at the restaurant and what I also love is that they have all this art on the walls…see, what happened (or the story goes) that the Art Gallery down the street from them in Lexington closed, so they told the artists, hey, we have wall space, hang it here, and if we sell it – we just get a small portion of the monies…Great deal right?

I love their food, and maybe I’m being a little biased, but everyone else seemed to really enjoy it as well.

So, if you are in Lexington, MA looking for a great restaurant to try out, check out Nourish of Lexington!  Tell them we sent you!

As Graceful as ever – The Graces

Ah The Graces…three lovely ladies who can sing in such wonderful harmonies with a sense of humor and wit…not to mention they can get down right bawdy.

When we say bawdy, we mean that it’s not crude or rude or nasty…no…it’s twists of the language so that if your children understand their jokes, it’s not their fault.  It is a show meant for older adults (mostly over the age of 18) but really, leave your young children to other things that will be going on.

These three lovely ladies are wenches free that consist of Kat McNiff (Kitty Grace), Gabrielle Murray (Jezebel Grace) and Mikayla Pachucki (Lily Grace) (more information is on their Facebook fan page at : http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/TheGraces?sk=info).  This is a high energy group that has performed at King Richard’s Faire, Winslowshire Festival, The Steampunk Festival (coming up soon in Waltham, MA) and their newest adventure at Abbadia Mare Festival (coming to Hammond Castle this July).

If you love wenches, and you love bawdy songs, then you really need to look no further than The Graces.  We hope that you come to Winslowshire to listen to their wonderful voices (crystal clear with harmonies too I should add) and enjoy their music (which you can now buy on a CD!)
