Weekend Round-up: BFF
Two of my very best friends from high school are coming into town this weekend for an Okie extravaganza. Okay, sure, none of us live in the Sooner state anymore, but whatever, we’re going to rock it like we’re seniors in high school all over again. So I guess that means Strawberry Boones Farm and Zima with jolly ranchers.
It's quite a treat for me to have them both here. While we once spent many evenings and almost every weekend together in high school, we're all living very different lives now. One friend is making a go of it in NYC. He's doing pretty damn well, has an IMDB profile and everthing. The other is an accountant in Dallas and soon to be moving to Chicago. She's married with a great husband. Pretty crazy that we all once resided in Shit Hole, Oklahoma.
But, I also really love entertaining people here in the nation's capital. I am fucking proud of Washington, D.C. And, I love that I live/work in Dupont, which is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the world (yeah, I said it) . It is an exciting town with lots of smart interesting people that do very important work. There are amazing restaurants and several nice places to booze it up.
So we're renting a car and going to see Mount Vernon as well as the Phillips Gallery. We have to do the walk down M street, something fun on U, maybe Ben’s late night, and hit up AM after we’re already sauced. And, there is a blueberry mojito that must be tried at 15 Ria, it’s one for the bards, my friends. Not to mention that it’s the second best blooming time in DC: Roses. Sure the Cherry Blossoms are lovely, but there is something so amazing about all the rose bushes in full bloom. Have any other suggestions?
So Happy Friday everyone--whips and all!
