I lived in Northern Virginia until 2010. My dad lives there, and my best friend, so even through college and now when I’m a Georgia resident, I don’t consider myself a tourist. This past weekend, my aforementioned best friend celebrated her 30th birthday and I got to ride shotgun. Here are the some of the highlights:
These aren’t cherry blossoms, but definitely worth pausing my afternoon run for. Almost all the beautiful flowering trees bloomed Friday afternoon.
We picked up the birthday cake at Baked & Wired, the best bakery in town. Sorry, Georgetown cupcake…
Birthday Dinner #1: Dinner for 14 at B Too. Belgian steak frites and mussels all around.
A birthday isn’t a birthday without a big green cow head.
I ordered Fried Duck balls to start. Braised Rabbit for my main. For dessert, we split smoked Creme Brûlée, a fried apple waffle, Chocolate Eden, and Key Lime Waffle.
Sunday Brunch at Teddy & the Bully Bar. Obviously a Teddy Roosevelt themed restaurant.
Don’t you just love a mini Mount Rushmore?
How about 100+ mini Mount Rushmores?
… and a chandelier made out of monocles?
Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict with a side of Mac & Cheese Gratin.
After Brunch, we went to see Woman in Gold at the Angelika in Fairfax. Picked up this present for Troy at the Swirl & Sip next door.
DC Step and Repeat at the Dc Airport…at 5am…
More to come for tomorrow’s blog post.
