Does your city / area host a Restaurant Week? It’s a great way to visit new places or try out popular restaurants for a cool price of $35 (3-course dinner) or $22 (lunch)! Found an article about the history.
Tuesday night, I met up with my friend (who just moved into the area), and walked over to The Wharf, the new, vibrant section in Southwest DC (only a few blocks away from the Waterfront metro station). We didn’t have a set location to eat dinner and catch up, but we found out Officina was participating in DC Restaurant Week, so that’s where we ended up.
According to its’ website, Officina is an Italian-inspired culinary collective. I liked the ambiance. By the time we left, it was full of patrons, visiting over dinner and drinks.
Since we didn’t have a reservation, we sat in the cafe / bar section, which was fine.
Hello there! How was your week?
Doing something new for Fridays. A recap of sorts and sharing a few links that you may enjoy. Fun, insightful, creative, silly things. Let’s see how it goes!
I’ve always enjoyed hosting parties and organizing social events. There’s nothing better than getting everyone together for a good time. I wanted to do something a little different than the party I hosted last Christmas. After a few revisions, I came up with an idea. Brunch! Who can say no to that? My friends and I love a good brunch during the weekend.
On Sunday, I had the pleasure of hosting a brunch at City Perch Kitchen & Bar in Pike & Rose. If you recall, I visited for the first time a few months ago. The experience was so memorable, I decided to return.
When everyone is busy with work and family, it’s hard sometimes to coordinate schedules, but thankfully, it all worked out. Lots of laughs and good conversation. It was great because it was a reunion of sorts. Catching up on what’s been happening in our lives this year, being silly. We were even singing – with harmonies too!
Lately, I’ve been a hardcore homebody during the weekends. Partially by default. During the week, I’m running all over so I usually keep my off-days empty. But this past weekend, I went to see a musical and brunch. I’m a social butterfly at heart and I do thrive on being around people. This season has been a little different, learning new things and focusing more on myself, which has been a blessing. But it’s still okay to switch it up and go out. A double whammy of fun for me. Of course, I had my phone and camera nearby, so this post has a chockful of pics! Let’s go. 🙂
Summer is pretty much here. For most, this means having more free time to explore, get away, and do fun things. I’m down for that. Why not start the adventure closer to home?
My friends and I visited Big Cork Vineyards during Memorial Day weekend. We heard very good things about the place and the timing worked out as well. From where I live, it’s about 45 minutes away in Washington County, MD. It’s in a quiet area, which is nice. Even though it’s not that far, once you arrive on the grounds, you feel like you escaped for the day.
