last weekend was spent hanging out with friends and trying out some new [to us] places. friday we metup with some friends for fancy cocktails at a cool little bar on 14th + u, quarter + glory. on saturday, after a failed attempt to attend an outdoor festival at yards park, we happily ended up at blue jacket for beers + bar snacks.
sunday, zach and i were on a mission in search of wood and other materials for two projects we’re working on at home. we decided to checkout community forklift in hyattesville, md. on our way, we stopped at vigilante coffee to pickup some coffee and pastries [the pretty star-shaped pastry is a kouign-amann, basically sugar, butter and heaven]. we topped off the weekend with a late-night oyster stop in our hood at eat the rich, a place we’ve been meaning to try since moving back to dc 5 months ago.
to me, there’s no better way to spend a weekend than by exploring new places in and near our city.
