Picture of the Day: January 26

A number of cities in the DC area have been offering restaurant week specials, where you can get a three course meal for substantially less than you'd normally pay. Despite a weather forecast calling for rain and wet snow, Mark and I decided to head to DC to grab lunch at one of our favorite fancy restaurants, Art & Soul!

It was incredibly dreary. Even for DC, which this time of year can seem like it only comes in shades of gray. It was drizzling and gross.

But the food was fantastic! I got fried calamari, which came in its own cute little fryer basket.

After inhaling my salmon (sorry, no picture...I ate it too fast!), I got pineapple upside down cake for dessert. Mmm...cake. :)

The drive home wasn't exactly fun; DC released all of the government employees two hours early, so we essentially got stuck in rush 2:30pm. About halfway home it started to sleet, then snow, and the roads turned into a big slushy mess. We counted 8 accidents and/or cars in ditches on the way home!


  1. Dude, that car totally doesn't count. It wasn't in an accident or obviously stuck in a ditch. :P
