While up in PA, we were so lucky that my mom and step-dad offered to watch Sheffy baby for us for a night, so we could have a night away, just me and him.
We left early in the morning, and as soon as we hit DC, we did all the fun touristy stuff, seeing the White House, the Monument, WWII Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial.
After walking around for about five or six miles, we headed over to the Laughing Man in DC where they were having the Auburn watch party. We got to watch the game with a bunch of Auburn grads in DC!!!
Oh yeah, and eat cheese fries and drink pitchers on pitchers of Sam Adams. PERFECT sports bar. It was dark, loud and full of Auburn fans.
After he game, we Ubered over to PNC Park to watch the Braves vs. Nationals. After the Braves had embarrassed themselves enough, we decided we needed another beverage. I mean, we were childless after all, and were going to be able to sleep through the night (which didn’t happen — once you’re conditioned to wake up at 2am, there’s just no getting around it).
I honestly don’t even remember the name of the bar, but it had a mirror door, and we couldn’t figure out how to get in — so we were pretty glad when someone opened it for us. #oldpeople
It had an old speakeasy feel — I got a Moscow Mule and B got an Old Fashioned.
After our drinks, we decided we were starving, so we found this awesome place called You & Pizza. It’s pretty much like a Subway, except with pizza. You decide what toppings you want on it, they cook it, and off you go. Plus they don’t have Coke or anything like that — they have taps with craft sodas on them. And they were delicious. They definitely need to find a way to bham.
We ate the pizza in bed, and promptly passed out. The next morning, we had brunch at Commissary. It was delicious. They have a brunch for two deal for $55 — that included, two cups of coffee, two entrees, and a pitcher of either mimosas or Bloody Mary’s. We chose the mimosas with two choices of juice — we got the peach and orange, and y’all…. a mimosa with peach juice is amazing!! After brunch, we looked around some more and headed back to our baby!
It was an amazing weekend trip, and I’m so thankful to my mom and Guido for allowing us to be able to go.
