A D.C. Getaway

We traveled to Washington, D.C. last week for a work meeting and then stayed over the weekend for some fun in the city with our good friends! It was a whirlwind of a weekend, but relaxing and really a great time! Just a few highlights...

We ventured out and hit lots of hot spots for dinner and bevs, including Old Ebbitt Grill on night one... The Hamilton on night two... followed by drinks at the Round Robin in the Willard Hotel, and Off the Record in The Hay-Adams. Two really swanky DC bars that made you feel like you were right on set of Scandal or House of Cards. It's amazing to be in the energy of that city... it never stops.

Friday night we had a low-key dinner and caught up with our good friends, Show and Leigh. They cooked us a wonderful meal and we downed a few tasty bevs before heading out to a neat area of bars in their neighborhood. The Adams-Morgan neighborhood is adorable, you are in the city, but feel worlds' away with the beautiful brownstones and tree lined streets.

Saturday we hit-up the D.C. zoo, which is part of the Smithsonian, so it's free - thank you government! After a round-trip tour with the animals, we headed to a local "preppy DC bar" called Town Hall for some football and wings. They actually serve your beer in a koozie - heaven! 

One last highlight of our trip was dinner at B Too Saturday evening. Simply A-mazing! It is a Belgium place - and we joked going in about it being a waffle bar - low and behold, even my venison was served with a mini waffle. I loved it! 

All-in-all, a great weekend in D.C. Thanks for the good times Show and Leigh, we can't wait to come back and visit!
