The Mr. Smith's
Yesterday's happy hour at Mr. Smith's was fun. It was good to see the usual suspects and a few others that I hadn't met before (including VP of Dior, The Milkman, Throwing Hammers, DC Sports guys and some cool friends of Kathryn's). It wasn't too chachi at HH and there was some tasty beer and even a hot bartender. Thanks to Kathryn for another hostess success.
--One of the DC Sports guys almost blowing his wad over meeting DC Bachelor. I am not sure if it was lots of beer or shared opinions about women or DCB's headband, but it was really, really funny.
--DC Cookie took lots of pictures (thanks for this one) and looked like she had a great time (especially after that shot)
--Discussing pomo with Mr. Pomo himself The Milkman. I also heard the myth, the legend, the lore of the mysterious origins of The Milkman nickname
--Kathryn certainly "got milk," and there are picture to prove it ;)
Oh, thanks to my girl Cat for coming along, it was great to see you.
Then I headed over to The Restaurant with DC Girl (in her sweet ride) where Miss Penny Lane and Chase were chillin with The Chef. It's a delish place and one of the most exciting finds of late was that they have a SMOKER for ribs and other cow and pig delights. It set my Okie heart aflutter at the reality of enjoying delicious barbecue on the East Coast (something I thought impossible). It is very exciting.
I also met The Florist who is just as lovely as I expected. We talked about various passions and particularly, her awesome floral shop in Georgetown Ultraviolet. It was also great to see The Senator and chat with him about American history and current parallels, which I hope he writes about soon.
And, of course, Happy Birthday to The Actor! Leos were abound last night, which always makes for a nice evening.
