But for today - it's a little view of our fun weekend in town.
Friday night we braved the wind and rain to go to dinner at one of our favorites, Cashion's Eat Place. We had purchased a 6 course and wine pairing tasting menu for a great deal on Gilt City and needed to use it before it expired. Everything was amazing - food, wine and the staff. We've got to make a point of getting down there more often!
Sunday we had a real treat. One of my best friends Jen and her husband Ian were in town/the country visiting from Dubai! They moved overseas almost 2 years ago, and I hadn't seen her since then...it had been even longer since I'd last seen Ian. Lunch at Coastal Flats was wonderful, but just not long enough. They're trying to get us to visit Dubai, we might just have to move it up the list!
We ended our busy weekend with some quiet couch time at home. A small cheese plate and delicious bottle of wine plus a mini-Grey's marathon was just the ticket. We opened a bottle of Loring Pinot, the first one that we've had since our trip to Santa Barbara in 2010. It's awesome that some of our older wines (this one's just an '08, so older is relative) are finally ready to drink!
With so many fun summer plans, we won't be home too many weekends for the next couple of months, so it's always nice when we are able to enjoy a fun DC weekend!
