After arriving in DC and meeting Jodi and Steve, these crazy guitar gurus at the local hole-in-the-2nd-floor guitar shop, Abe the photo guy who helped me get my life together in a matter of minutes and with just a few prints, the French dude who plays tour guide for our quick trip around the wine world during nightly tastings of foreign wines in Dupont, I ventured outside my neighborhood.
First it was off to Maryland with my roommate, Erin. We made our very first trip to Maryland to experience the wonderful world of Target. That's about all there is to do in Wheaton, Maryland and unless you count riding the longest escalator in the Western Hemisphere on your shortlist, we exhausted southern Maryland's entertainment offerings in a single shopping center.
A couple nights later, Austin (Steph's brother-in-law, and the other half of the best man/maid of honor duo) Virginia called my name and we headed to fantastic sushi in Rosslyn, VA followed by a buffet of Irish pubs in Old Town Alexandria (which is the cutest east coast neighborhood yet). Bands playing upstairs and down at Murphy's, or first stop, followed by O'Connels which couldn't have crowded their dark wood paneled walls with another rugby photo or piece of memorabilia...I love the Irish!
Next adventures will be work and exploring D.C.
