For our anniversary this year Husband and I did two things:
– We took a food tour of Old Town Alexandria, VA
– We test drove a BMW
Please enjoy the plethora of pictures I took of our test driving experience:
Kay. Now, check out the cool photos from our food tour!
Food Tour First Stop: Bilbo Baggins Inn/The Green Dragon Pub
We nommed a delicious mushroomy appetizer topped with a balsamic drizzle, a sun dried tomato, and a breaded bit of deeeeelicious cheese. They also gave us a hobbit sized taste of beer. The guy across from me drank four of them.
In a thinly veiled attempt to hide our geekery, Husband and I pretended not to notice that whoever painted the Hobbity mural had CLEARLY never read the books:
Stop Two: Union Street Pub, some icky poo poo gazpacho soup, and the most delicious chicken salad sandwich I’ve ever eaten:
Stop Three: The Columbia Firehouse (which actually used to be a firehouse).
(I may have nommed this a bit before I remembered to take a photo- it was quite yummy).
The final stop on our food tour was Husband and I’s favorite place in all of Alexandria — Old Town Coffee Tea and Spice (which we visit as often as possible, and which did not allow photographs). We had a delicious slice of jelly cake (Alexandria’s…erm…national dessert), bought some awesome coffee, and congratulated ourselves for already knowing about “the best kept secret in Old Town.”
Then we went home, took a nap, and played Minecraft. The End.
