Drinks and Sushi in D.C.

Dc_drinks_3 Ahhh, a Saturday night in D.C. The candlelight was just right, the hi-fi was in the background, and the wine (actually, mai tai) was delicious.

After a five-day girls’ trip with my mom and sister Hannah (who is neither hard-hearted nor a vamp) to Savannah and North Carolina, we returned to Hannah’s house in D.C. for a few days before I flew back home to Colorado. My buddy Elaine, from Loudoun County, and my buddy Traci, from Washington State/Hampton/Alabama/Texas and wherever else the USAF sees fit to send her, drove up for an evening of shopping and… um… well, the picture says it all.

Things about D.C.:

  • People dress well, but in kind of a scary uniform Brooks Brothers way.
  • Freakin’ everything has history associated with it. You can drive along making up your own "historical" tour. ("And in 1936, the Federal Institute for the Examination of Bovine Abcesses was established in that big grey building over there.")
  • People go out a lot. Which is good. More things to eat, more things to drink. mmm.
  • People name-drop politicians and media types all the time (says my sister, who works with John, Lawrence, Eleanor and Pat).

Mad props to my scrappin’ homies. More later.

    How is it that we spend the evening together but your rendition of it is so much BETTER than mine? Damn you and your witty ways!
    (ps–can I swear in your blog or do I need to go back and insert little black censor bars over the above?)

    Molly is too kool 4 skool, Traci, and that’s a fact. We need to simply bow to her superior blogabilities and walk slowly away…..

    Ptttttht to you both. Traci, my only problem with your comment is that there’s not enough swearing in it, damn it all!
