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.
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.
I met Jim for lunch at City Tap. I was late so Jim ordered us the pimento cheese app. Very good. I got the Italian Stallion. Jim got a salmon salad. Very good to see him.
I met Trenita for lunch at Martin’s Tavern. I got chipped beef and eggs. She got the chicken sandwich. Was very good to see her. One of those days. I needed some lunch time company.
We had our team lunch at Circa Dupont today. I think Karima likes that place. She got the Quinoa bowl. Grant got the crab cake. Ashley got the wild mush flat bread. I got the jambalaya, my usual there.
