We didn't see any monuments, but we did see the last Harry Potter movie (although even that outing was almost thwarted by broken A/C. You know it's hot when it's almost too hot to go to the movies).
A sampling of our weekend survival guide, if you will:
Refreshing drinks at Circa in Clarendon
My sister's idea of grocery shopping for my visit...
...Directly leading to my first taste of the infamous Whole Foods Chocolate Chewie
"Frickles" at Old Glory in Georgetown
(that's fried pickles and jalepenos for all you Northerners)
Pitt Dogg with collard Greens at Old Glory
Brunch at Birch & Barley: scene of the doughnut hole massacre, 2011
Bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit from Birch & Barley
(clearly my sister's breakfast since I think eggs are gross and she, well, doesn't)
That's right, I said it. I wanted fudgy chewiness and instead got crunchy chewiness. And I was not a fan. Sorry Whole Foods, not a winner in my book.
But if eating a mediocre chocolate cookie was the low point of the weekend, I think we can categorize it as a success.
Besides, all that sweating surely counteracted all the drinking...right?
