I Heart DC
For the past year or so I've been wanting to move into "The City" REAL bad. As much I love Virginia, being in DC is so much different. The people, restaurants, bars, music, art... it just has a different "vibe". The flip side is, we would be living in a shoe box for the same price as we're paying for our somewhat roomy condo in VA. Luckily, it's a hop skip and a jump on 66 to get a taste of city livin'.
Last night we tried this really yummy restaurant called panas gourmet empanadas in Dupont Circle. It's one of those places where you just walk up to counter, order your food and you're good to go. No bells and whistles here, just tasty empanadas. My favorite - The Popeye. Mmmm spinach!
After gorging on empanadas, we walked over to Velvet Lounge (which is a little bit of a hike but it was a lovely evening) to see a friends' band called Benny.
A couple beers, a shot of Whiskey (yuk!) and some good tunes later, we called it a night. A GOOD night.
