Etiquette Tuesday: Move on.

I have been seeing a lot of this lately:  the uninvited wedding guest.  Honestly, I have been guilty of this myself by adding on a plus one to my wedding invite not knowing that this little block of space is only for my name and not two.  I, however, will refrain from asking for a […]

Drinks on Me: Ted’s Montana Grill

Okay, okay…we know it’s summer and it’s hot. Cocktail specials are happening all over the city, but there are few you should try at a rugged themed restaurant called Ted’s Montana Grill. Three were enough to make us feel lovely, and helped pass that torrential downpour that appeared as a pseudo hurricane. Grand Agave: Patron […]

Vinifera Wine Bar & Bistro – Reston, VA

Being a comfortable “P.G. Countier” (new term that I recently came up with? haha), I don’t really venture out to Reston that much.  Maybe for a random bite or to see a fun festival every few years but normally you can find me somewhere in DC, MD, Arlington, or Alexandria. Vinifera Wine Bar and Bistro […]

Drinks on Me: Mari Vanna

I love this place and do not spend enough time here.  A cozy spot tucked in the absolute center of the Golden Triangle in this city, Mari Vanna is a diamond in the rough.  The bar is small and intimate so getting there before the crowd is suggested.  The dining room takes over two levels […]

During this visit he talked about his latest restaurant venture, TKO Burger, and I knew I wanted to be among the first patrons to try out his new creations. My wish came true […]

I sampled a few breakfast entrees, enjoyed an assortment of appetizers including the calamari and sliders, and topped the visit off with a taste of ahi tuna paired with a crab cake & fried green […]

Where I’m Eating: Bottomless.

Brunch with girlfriends is fun.  Brunch with girlfriends and unlimited mimosas is absolutely awesome.  Urbana is one of my fave brunch destinations in the city with girlfriends because though you have to share the space with other patrons, it still manages give you the feeling of seclusion.  With all the chatter swirling around the table, […]
