A City Jaunt

by - Thursday, October 02, 2014

I dragged DH into the city over the weekend for a day date. With a Google map printout in hand, we played tourists like the locals we weren't. We started off with a late lunch at someplace new and an old favorite (iced chai tea latte never disappoints.) Then we walked it off by strolling through semi-famous and not-so-famous landmarks alike. I'm so glad we were able to enjoy the most perfect weather outside.

  1. That sounds like a lot of fun! Love the pic of you on Einstein's lap!

  2. ShopHouse is not new anymore but I am glad you got to try it! Yeah I agree you were probably not putting the right ingredients but I love the place as much as Chipotle or Cava :)

    1. Oh I meant new to us. We don't get out much, haha. I'm going to ask everyone who loves ShopHouse -- what combo do you get? Haven't heard of Cava, so I just googled it. I haven't had the best of luck with Mediterranean in the past so not really a fan, but would be willing to give them a try because of good reviews!

    2. Haha you should! Cava is definitely my favorite so far. There's one in Tysons Mall that I used to go for lunch all the time. The Cava Meze (sit down version of the chain) in Courthouse is beyond extraordinary, not the typical Mediterranean you would normally see. Hope you guys would try it one day!


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
