A Full Weekend: Cafe Italia, Cabaret, Women's Run, ZPizza

This past weekend was packed with fun with friends and family. Some girlfriends and I decided to end the work week with dinner and then a show at Venture Theatre on Friday Night. We decided to try out the new Cafe Italia on Montana Avenue before the show and were not disappointed. We started out with a bottle of Layered Cake Primavito (which was a great choice by my friend Katie) and they served a couple of different types of bread with vinegar and oil. We all tried a different pasta dish, traditional alfredo, carbonara alla zucchi, and mushroom ragout. It was all great.

After dinner we went to Cabaret at Venture Theatre and it was a full house. Set in Berlin on the brink of the Nazi era, Cabaret was edgy, thought provoking and entertaining--we all had a great time.

Then, up bright and early for the Women's Run. Holly, Katie and I wanted to be a part of the walk but decided to take it easy on Saturday morning by just walking the 2mile. I placed at number 1,876...I beat Katie and Holly:). The Women's Run was very well attended with nearly 7,000 runners and walkers.

Saturday Night, I hung out with Dustin and we tried out ZPizza a new place out on Shiloh near the Red Door. It's a cute little place. You can dine in, take out, or get it delivered and you can order by the slice or get a whole pizza, salads and sandwiches available too. What's unique about ZPizza is that all the ingredients are natural or organic. They use low-fat mozzarella cheese and even have gluten-free crust available (excellent for those with food allergies). It was delicious. They're pizzas have a very California style to them. Dustin went with straight up Pepperoni and I tried the Napoli-garlic sauce, tomatos, basil--good stuff!

Sunday of course was Mother's Day. Hope everyone got to spend time with and appreciate their Moms!
