What I Ate: A five-course meal at Gwendolyn and too many Peeps

Posted By on Tue, Apr 22, 2014 at 11:15 AM

Another busy week of eating is in the books. I somehow survived two Hot Joy visits, a five-course dinner at Gwendolyn and way too many Easter sweets. I also managed a visit to Fiesta Arts Fair at the Southwest School of Art where I found no gorditas! Blasphemy!  Follow me on Instagram for food adventures: @JessElizarraras.
