Have I mentioned it’s hot out yet? ‘Cause it’s hot… In the summer spirit, the roommate and I are out together again, bringing up my date standards. Back into Kelowna we go! Although, no creepy people this time..
We saw a TikTok awhile back about a place in town called Karat. It’s a chocolate and pastry shop that’s all local and made in house. So, that’s our first stop!
The aesthetic of that store is top notch! I fell in love before we even walked in! (Future editing note, apparently the baker there knows a good friend of mine, so I’ll be going back!) We ended up splitting a delicious veggie sandwich!
I’ve said to my roommate that 35 is too hot, but 30 is manageable, so we are trying to not spend too much time downtown. I say that, but, have I ever talked about my favourite bar downtown? I went back and looked and I don’t think so, but it was called Muninn’s Post. It was a viking bar that had board games and a stellar staff. My group of Magic nerds definitely loved that place. The reason I bring it up is because they sold and now it’s a cafe.
Twice the Dice is it’s new name. We were walking by and saw a chess table outside. and of course, I clued in and ran inside super excited! I wandered around looking at the shelves or board games just amazed at how full it was with life. The owner is very friendly and talked to me about renovations and Magic for a bit. I’m glad, that little shop appears to be in good hands. She kept the big viking hull as the counter too which was comforting to see.
After our little adventure has got rather warm, so we’ve decided to hit up the mall. See if we can blow way too much money on shoes.
No shoes, but there were some redeeming sweaters. Pastel pink is everywhere and I am a sucker for that as of like three months ago! Only real downside, I was about ready to throw down with this lady for trash talking her own kid for having feelings. The poor girl got overwhelmed about choices and started to get worked up, and this woman literally shouts at her “what’s wrong with you!” My god, some people are dooming the next generation.
Our social batteries are running low, so our buddy is going to pick us up. Apparently there’s a food truck event downtown, so that for dinner and then homeward bound. Spending the day out with my roommate was a lot of fun. I love her dearly and am blessed to have her in my life. But yeah, that was our adventure. Thanks for coming with us!
