Bike Race Brunch

On Sunday Philadelphia played host to world-class athletes competing in the TD Bank International Cycling Championship, better known to the locals simply as "Bike Race."  The Spatularettes, on the other hand, played host to a bunch of friends and threw a big Bike Race Brunch to celebrate this annual event.  Tall One's apartment is conveniently located along the course which makes it the perfect location to throw a Bike Race party.

It was a great day of friends, fun, and of course, lots of food!  We want to share a couple of pictures from Bike Race with you now, but be sure to check back all week for lots of great brunch recipes!!

The Savory

Our friends hiding out under a tree to stay dry during the rain.
Anxiously awaiting the cyclists' final trip up "The Wall"

It wouldn't be brunch without cocktails!
Iced Irish Coffee, Ambassador's Cocktail, and a growler of our favorite beer
