Weekend Fun in DC

Posted by Princess Eva Angelica On 4:51 AM
Where is this month going?! The days are completely getting away from me and though it is already Thursday of the following week I still have to share the fun we had in DC this past weekend.

Friday night we got a great deal off of What's The Deal DC for a beer tasting at RFD in Chinatown. This is one of my favorite happy hour spots because they have a variety of great beers and they are all included in various specials throughout the week. I love when unique beers are part of happy hour as opposed to your run of the mill Bud Light, Miller Light, etc. The deal was $12 for 5 flights of beer to taste and a complimentary glass of whichever beer you liked the best! There were four of us so we had fun trying around 15 or so beers. I tried to stick to small sips and really enjoy the different tastes. Lately I am loving dark beers and the Vanilla Porter was my favorite, thought it is definitely a winter drink.

After seeing some clients in the morning we also went to a new to me place in DC, Cafe Japone, on Saturday night. Friends of ours set up a college reunion type dated night and it was great seeing everyone. We had a section of the bar all to ourselves with great specials.

We started Sunday with a 4 mile run, our first "long run" to wrap up our first week of training. Overall I'm feeling strong and excited to add some extra mileage. After our run we rewarded ourselves with homemade peanut butter and jelly pancakes, yes that's right. I stirred natural peanut butter into gluten free pancake mix instead of oil, and reduced sugar free jam  on the stove with a pinch of cornstarch for the syrup. The combination was extremely rich and flavorful and it definitely hit the spot!

The good eat's continued throughout the day with a BBQ at a friends house with burgers topped with avocado, watermelon, and lemon feta pasta salad. They also made homemade peach frozen yogurt. The eating is definitely my favorite part of half-marathon training.
