It was desperately humid out last night but oh so summery so we wanted to sit outside for some drinks, apps and girl talk (pretty much my favorite things!)
We decided on Morton's Steakhouse -- and while getting steak would have been the best option -- budgets don't agree with Morton's prices! Instead, I spent my precious dollar bills on my favorite drink -- a lemon drop martini for the fat price of $14.75. Talk about missing happy hour :( But licking the sugar rim was totally worth it! Michelle got the margarita, which was even MORE!
I was in the mood for something light so I got my absolute favorite appetizer, mozzarella and tomato salad with basil. Unfortunately, it was pretty puny and actually one of the most disappointing I've had. Michelle ordered the tuna tar tar with avocado and tomato, which looked amazing but also came out lacking in taste. A little salt helped the problem but it was also disappointing overall.
Of course we were NOT full by these pathetic little nibbles and I had never been to Red Velvet Cupcakery, which was right around the corner. I am a lover of cupcakes and was super-excited to try -- what else -- the red velvet flavor. All these cupcake spots opening up in D.C. have me craving them constantly but it turns out I'm rather picky. Though my cupcake was good, I still liked Hello Cupcake better and am dying to try Sprinkles, which Maggie swares by! Read more about my cupcake experience over at my blog!
