The sky wasn’t exactly blue all weekend, but it might as well have been. Not only we were lucky enough to have Evan’s parents come into town and treat us to delicious meals, but the Tar Heels beat the Blue Devils, which is (if you didn’t know) one of the biggest rivalries out there. Evans roommates, parents and I went out to dinner at Clydes in Georgetown, before heading over to Public Bar to watch the game. The picture below taken by my blackberry does not do it justice, though you get the idea that there were tvs lining the walls. There was a huge UNC constituency, which made it the perfect environment to watch such an important game.
UNC – 81
Duke – 67
Earlier that day, we had brunch at Founding Farmers. This place is one of my favorites, and here’s why:
Homemade chips with green goddess dressing, pimento cheese and onion dip.
Banana Fluffer Nutter: bread, peanut butter, marshmallow fluff and bananas with crunchies on top.
Sheet Music: Mixed Greens, Peas, Radishes, Corn, Golden Beets, Jonny’s Nuts, Parmesan Crisp, House Vinaigrette.
New Orleans Style Stuffed French Toast: House-Made Brioche Soaked in Brandy Creme Anglaise, Flash Fried and Filled with Vanilla Pastry Cream.
Benedict Florentine with spinach and tomato and a side of leek hash browns (mine).
This is making me hungry…
We walked (slowly, with very full stomachs) to the Newseum, which I’ve been to three times now but never get tired of seeing. Seriously, if you’re going to go to one museum in DC, go to this one. Whirlwind of a weekend!
