Vincent's on Camelback: It's Restaurant week!

So it's Restaurant Week in Phoenix! That means some of our fabulous favorites are giving us a 3+ course meal at the scandulous price of $30-$40. In other words it's time to grab a fork people!
Now the sheer genius of it all is that the Restaraunt Week people have created a chart with carrots and all to show us Veggies who is catering to us highly intelligent and sexy masses.  But be warned-check the menu first, I don't what qualifies as vegetarian options to some people,but really some of the standards here are really lose.

Off to Vincent's on Camelback. An oldie but a goodie....

My meal:
Brie in Puff Pastry with Figs
Spinach Salad with Peaches, Strawberries and Mozzarella with a Sherry Wine Vinaigrette

Portobello and Polenta Mushroom Tower with Sautéed Spinach

Pineapple Coconut Pie with Rum Raisin Ice Cream
Chocolate Profiteroles

Now how did I get an extra app and dessert ...just bring along a date who will share! Viola!

The brie lacked a bit of finesse, the salad suprisingly savory, entree prepared well though the sauce needed a kick, and the desserts...well Im glad I had 2- delish! Oh and go with the Pinot Noir's divine!

XXX out of XXXXX

Let's hear it for the boys! Hot Male Celebrity Vegetarians

Looking for the Who's Who of hot vegetarians!? Well I know I am! Scoping out the HOTTEST VEGETARIAN AWARDS handed out by PETA- I'm starting this series with the boys. (Sorry I'm in charge, and they are my favs. I promise the ladies are coming soon!)

There is something about a tattooed rebel boy like fellow v-lover Travis Barker! I might be in love!?
 In case you live under a rock, Travie ( my pet name for him) is an American musicianproducer and entrepreneur, most ounoted as the drummer for the Americanpop punk band Blink-182, as well as the alternative rock band +44, the rap rock band The Transplants, and the alternative rock band Box Car Racer. He was a frequent collaborator with the late DJ AM, and together they formed TRV$DJAM.
I think at one time he was married to some other blonde chick. We won't discuss this...

Owain Yeoman- MEOW! His credits include The NineKitchen Confidential and the HBO series, Generation Kill. He currently appears as Agent Wayne Rigsby in The Mentalist.

This one is for the boys...he's not on my team. But he sure is nice to look at!

Like a man's man? Little aggression with that quinoa salad? How about pro- UFC fighter Jake Sheilds?!

Jake is an American mixed martial artist who is currently fighting in the middleweight division of the UFC. He is the last Rumble on the Rock 175 lb (79 kg) champion. He is the first and last Elite XC Welterweight Champion. He is also the former Shooto Welterweight Champion and is the former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion.

You can bench me Jake anytime!

Who says being a vegetarian is for sensitive tree huggers? These men are successful smart and sexy vegetarians! Rock on Boys!

Food for Thought...

Pit Stop Shinanigans: Sylvia's La Canasta Restaurante

So while antique shopping in Melrose, I was overcome by hunger pains and the desire for some good chips & salsa...And I found it! At Sylvia's La Canasta Restaraunte in Phoenix!
The service was painfully slow ( maybe I came during siesta) but the chips and salsa hit the spot!

The enchilada was greasy, cheesy and super authentic. Just what a girl needed after a long day of shopping! Guacamole was delish!

A must try in central Phoenix!
