I love Tuesdays. Weird right? Well, I don't work on Tuesdays. During the school year I stock it full of three hour classes, but in the summer, it's the day I get everything done that I would like to do in other moments but lose the chance.
Yesterday was no exception. I've made a new friend! How exciting is that, right? He's a musician who lives in my area and we met and hit it off and now we best friends forever. Actually, yesterday we had a conversation about airing your personal life on the Internet but c'mon, I'm a blogger! Plus I'm promoting him, so it's all good.
Anyway, yesterday we took an impromptu trip into D.C. because we're both sick of the burbs. I loveeee DC Not only is it the nation's capitol (woo hoo, America!) but it's also a diverse metropolis filled with different ethnic areas, fabulous restaurants and free museums. You can't beat that. Now, as much as I say I love DC, I don't often get into the city. When Chris suggested it though, I was all for it.
Our first of two stops was the Spy Museum, which is awesome and perfect if you have little kids or immature adults like myself. It's a good mix of informative and interactive so it hits the spot for most people. If I were an activities blogger I'd tell you all about that but I know you're way more interested in the FOOD.
To start, we got mini burgers. Not your average plate, right? Now, I'm not a huge fan of fried onion, but I had a few bites of these crunchy little straws and they were pretty good. The hand-pattied certified Angus beef burgers were served on toasted brioche with mozzarella and pickles. They were tiny but so satisfying that I stopped at one. Plus, we all know I love little versions of big food!
Anyway, next time you're in DC and looking for a great bite, check out Matchbox, located on H Street in Chinatown!
