We just celebrated our two-year wedding anniversary and we are planning a night out this coming weekend to toast our success. Our version of a night out, as you can imagine, involves food and drink and we love to try new things. It’s pretty hard, though, to not run to our local watering hole to enjoy the ambiance and fab drink concoctions.
This year, we’re thinking of a couple of routes. Food truck hunting (yes… that would be romantic), a trip to southern Virginia to try a 4-star (non Michelin) restaurant that was dubbed best new place by Food and Wine, OR, somewhere local with a bit of atmosphere. Since we ate at the French Hound in Middleburg for V-Day, that’s out, but it’s exactly what I’m hoping to find. Would love to make rezzies at the Inn at Little Washington, but am doubtful that’s open with a week’s notice. The other, more fun route, would be to plunk ourselves down at a table at Tim’s Rivershore and go to town on some auce crabs. Both of our mouths water at the thought.
On the actual day of our anniversary, I was fighting a bad
cold hangover and I ordered JB some chinese food and went to bed. Bad wife. Must make up for it. Since we enjoy gallivanting around, we’d definitely be up for a drive for a nice meal and I’m debating on surprising him or deciding together. Currently, the following are on our eating wish lists, but are a bit out of our scope for travel on a holiday weekend:
Husk – Charleston
Hominy Grill – Charleston
Village Whiskey – Philly
Acme Oyster House – New Orleans
Off to start planning!
