Blackwall Hitch for dinner

By on February 18th, 2017

We went to Blackwall Hitch for Judy’s birthday dinner. We got a bunch of apps. The calamari was really good. I got the scallops and risoto. It was good but not as good as Peggy’s pork osso bucco. Everybody loved that especially Emily. It’s a big portion so Emily ate a bunch after she decided she didn’t like her crab mac and cheese. Emily also liked her gourmet hot chocolate. I’ll need to get that next time. I’d also look at the bayou penne next time as the sausage was really good. After that we went back to Judy’s for some of the Smith Island Cake Alan’s daughter Sara made. Very good. Kentucky even whooped Georgia. Good times.

Dupont Circle with Big Al

By on February 17th, 2017

I stayed late to do some hopping around Dupont Circle. We started out at Bar Dupont. Nice red top there but the bartender spilled water on Alex and then on red top. I can understand red top but not Al. We left there and I dragged a complaining Alex to Dukes. Of course, Duke redeemed itself with a proper burger. Though Edouardo tried to make my tequila sunrise with cranberry juice. We ended the night at Urbana. Jake the bartender said Lance was back in town but wouldn’t be able to stop by and see us. He also had a rough time and never got my tequila sunrise quite right. I gave him a pass though because Alex kept threatening to kidnap him. All in all, good times.
