Hanging at The Counter

I bet you can't guess what I did last night? If you guessed another blogger meet-up then you would be right! Really, I don't know that I even really consider these to be blogger meet-ups anymore. These girls have become my friends and I really just like hanging out with them. We do discuss blogging some when we get together but we also get a lot of normal "girl talk" when we hang out.
Last night Katie, Jen, Jessie, Jen, and I did hot yoga (and yes, the sweat poured off me like rain again) together.  After yoga we went to The Counter for dinner and further socializing. 

There are a lot of really good burger places in Charlotte: Big Daddy's (the scene of one of my first blogger meet-ups), Nix, and The Counter.  Big Daddy's has a pretty amazing black bean burger.  I'd say Nix has my favorite beef burger if I'm eating meat.  This was my first time at The Counter.  I liked their custom menu, which was kind of similar to a sushi menu, where you check boxes to make your selections.

I chose a veggie burger (small) on lettuce instead of bun, with cheddar, guac, tomatoes, grilled onion, black bean and corn salsa, and roasted red peppers.

We ordered a pile of sweet potato fries to share.  They rocked.

Here is my masterpiece burger...  Nom Nom Nom... :)  It was totally yummy and I should bring Greg here as he's quite the veggie burger connoisseur these days.  I think he'll approve.  Although, we were told upon leaving that they are going to be making it into a sushi/burger place soon.  Not sure what I think of this concept even though I love sushi and burger.  Together this sounds like an odd concept though...

Blog Meetups sound so fun! I think the Charlotte area has so many bloggers there should be one big blog party/convention :)

Oh I love The Counter! When I was in advertising at the radio station, they were one of my first clients :) YUM.

is there no bun purposely? Looks delicious!

Yeah, I think I'm going to push for the next Healthy Living Summit to be held in Charlotte! I need to rally my fellow CLT bloggers and make it happen!
Yes- no bun on purpose. A lot of the burger places around here give you the option of burger on salad or on bun. I like it both ways, but was more in a salad mood last night :)
