Eric and I took a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary in Washington, D.C. It was a fantastic trip. We explored the city, a lot of the museums and ate a ton of great food. We did end up exploring some of the eateries Anthony Bourdain explored on his trip to the city. We are pretty big fans of his. We went to Ben's chili bowl for a half-smoke and fries. A half smoke I learned is half sausage half hot dog with chili, onions and mustard. It was awesome.
The Smithsonian is amazing. We checked out the National History museum, Art museum, Air and Space. We walked miles inside the buildings looking at everything.
The National monuments were also amazing. The WWII memorial and the Korean memorial were two of our favorites. Seeing old Abe was pretty cool too.
We had a wonderful time to visiting Jose Andreas restaurant's Jaleo and Oyamel. We sat at Jaleo eating spainish tapas for a while. Drinking Sangria and Estrella Damm Inedit beer. So good. Jaleo lead into one of our favorite evenings there. We ate great Spanish tapas reminiscent of our honeymoon in Barcelona and we went to see Avenue Q. If you have a chance to see it go. It is hilarious.
We also went to the historic Tabard Inn restaurant for our anniversary dinner. It was a wonderful dinner and a great way to cap off our first year of being married.
