Out and About

This seems to be the week for dining out, after staying home for ages... On Wednesday we went with our neighbors Nancy and Judy to a new wine bar, Enology.  Food was excellent, mostly small plates, lots of choices.  And the wine was great - we had a flight of reds that was outstanding!

Thursday was our friend Peggy's birthday - we took her to dinner at Bistrot Lepic, in Georgetown.  Another winner!  We'd like to go back to their upstairs wine bar sometime soon...

Last night we went to the Buddy Guy / BB King concert at the DAR Constitution Hall.  What a great show - Buddy was phenomenal, no other word for it.  We can't believe BB King is 83 years old and still belting out the tunes! The Thrill is definitely NOT Gone...
Before dinner we enjoyed dinner at the Old Ebbit Grill - a DC institution.  Impeccable service, 
and a separate menu just for the oysters!  I can't seem to stop ordering Maryland crab cake everywhere we go - coming from Dungeness country it's such a luxury to have so much real crab meat piled up on my plate.   Good thing we were walking to the concert afterwards, we needed the exercise after that meal!

Today, we're off to Alexandria VA to do a little exploring -
