winter wonderland

i had a little holiday outing with some friends before i left d.c.  for the holidays. we decided to try out the new ice skating rink at the georgetown waterfront. the capitals were having an event the night we went and it was a joy to see the christmas spirit alive, from decorations to families enjoying the ice. we had a lovely time skating! 
after skating we went to mai thai in georgetown for dinner... i don't think any of us can ever have enough thai food. thanks for the fun date night a! xoxo

holiday cheer.

my good friend meredith had her annual hanukkah party a few weekends ago. there was delicious food, great drinks, and of course wonderful friends. this year we also had a white elephant gift exchange. i ended up with a $10 chipotle gift card which was a great gift!

zoo lights

last friday some friends and i went to check out zoo lights at the national zoo. the zoo has always been one of my favorite places so it was fun to be there late-night and explore all they had going on! throughout the night we voted on gingerbread houses, snaked at local food trucks, and of course saw all the lights! 

after the zoo we went to we the pizza because i'm obsessed! 
all in all this was my kind of night!

the hamilton live.

a few friends and i went to see steve moakler and matt wertz perform at the hamilton live. this venue is awesome because it is in the lower level of the hamilton restaurant (which is one of my favs) so you can sit and eat/drink while watching the show (which is great for a weeknight when you want to relax after work but still get out)! i wasnt too familiar with either artist but i left the show with their cds in hand and have been listening to both of them since!

satellite room.

adult milkshakes. lets just say those are my new favorite words. erinn and i went to check out the new diner inspired restaurant/bar, the satellite room, last weekend. the vibe is pretty neat and they have a great outdoor space with heaters so it can still be used in the winter, which is great. if im being honest the food was a bit disappointing... but the adult milkshakes made up for it. overall, i would be willing to give the food another try.. especially before or after a show at the 9:30 club.
