You know how it is when you still don’t really feel well but it’s Saturday and you try to fake it? Yeah, that happened. I didn’t really feel too bad though, so I decided that I should run. It was a nice day out, on the warm side (sorry New Englanders), really the perfect running outside weather. Since I’m doing a 10K in a month, I thought 5 miles sounded like a good distance to tackle. But my stomach told me otherwise and as soon as I started running, it started to hurt. I managed to do a run/walk combination for 4 miles but it was pretty bad.
I guess I should have known something was still off when come 3pm, the only thing I’d eaten all day was a bowl of cereal and I still wasn’t hungry. But I was still feeling like I could fake my way into feeling better. So Jason and I had an early dinner at Victory Sandwich Bar. He’d been wanting to go there since it was featured on Anthony Bourdain’s show, The Layover, a couple weeks ago.
As you can probably guess from the name, they sell sandwiches. The inside has a interesting vibe. It’s like part sub shop, part bar and very hipster.
The menu had sandwiches, a few sides and a few salads to choose from.
On the back, they had a drink menu and Jason ordered what they are known for: their Jack and Coke Slushies. Fun, right?
I don’t like whiskey, so I just had a sip or two of his. Now if they had a Rum and Coke slushie, I would have been all about it. For my meal, I got the Weed Eater sandwich which was buffalo mozzarella, avocado, hummus and arugula. (with a side of lactaid – jury is out on whether or not I have a dairy intolerance.)
The sandwiches all came with chips and were definitely on the small side, but that was fine with me because they were really cheap and also, my whole lack of appetite thing. They offered a hummus of the week, which we also tried. It was some sort of curry and onion hummus. It was okay. I liked the sandwich better. Guess that’s why it’s not called Victory Hummus Bar. Though if there was a hummus bar in Atlanta, I’m pretty sure it’d be my favorite thing ever.
I really liked this place, the sandwiches were very good and you can’t beat the price.
After eating, we met up with some friends at The Wrecking Bar for drinks. I’m not quite sure what happened. If it was the beer I drank there or just eating food or what, but I started feeling really nauseous again and we left early.
Good news is that I really do feel better today. Finally. Bad news is it’s Sunday night.
