Oysters at Old Ebbitt Grill and a trip to the Spy Museum…

I had another relaxing weekend in DC… After watching The Ant Bully and Ramona & Beezus and half napping from bad allergies, we grabbed some yummy chicken… but I got horribly sick so we stayed in with me curled up in a ball for the longest time.  I woke up feeling SO SO much better on Saturday and we both were craving oysters… so we headed over to Old Ebbitt Grill for some raw oysters and other yummies… I had my first bus ride in DC woooo!!!

Of course as soon as we sat down at the bar – the place was PACKED – we ordered some of what we came for.  A glass of bubbly for me and a lick of the lips, we were ready

A dozen delicious Oysters

Starting Left and Clockwise…
Barcats, Battle Creek, Blue Island, Quonset Pio, Sewansecott, Wellfleets

These were delicious. Each one had some shell stuck in it but they were deliciousssss!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Fried Calamari

Ancho Chili Pepper Dipping Sauce

They were good, it’s hard to mess up fried calamari… but NO TENTACLES :[ So that made me a little sad. Didn’t try the dipping sauce since I’m not really into mayo-based sauces usually teehee…  PLUS I was busy with my choices…

Avocado Citrus Salad

Mixed Spring Greens, Clementines, Avocado, Scallions, Toasted Almonds, Gorgonzola Cheese and Citrus Vinaigrette

Totally lacking in avocado… and not sure if I saw scallions.. but the cheese was delicious and creamy, I loved the crisp fresh greens and crunchy almonds, NOM!  Sweet and slightly tart clementines MMMMMM… I asked for the vinaigrette on the sad but I guess they forgot – THANKFULLY it wasn’t too overly dressed… a bit goopy, but still good.  Definitely needed more avocado, I think I only got like 3 or 4 pieces and only one big chunk, I think only a quarter of a avocado :[ Sad.  If it’s the first thing in the name, it should be showcased atop of the salad!

Steamed Canadian Cove Mussels

PEI Mussels, Tomatoes, Fresh Herbs and a Garlic-White Wine Sauce

These were really really good :D A nice garlicky buttery wine sauce, nice fresh tomatoes and super yummy juicy mussels. NOM!  I had this as basically my main… well this and the salad.  It was a nice light fluffy meal, SOOOO delicious… I also had a nibble of W’s lunch….

He got a yummy Reuben

First Cut Corned Beef, Sauerkraut, Swiss Cheese and Thousand Island Dressing on Rye Bread

It was big and tasty. MMM fries.

Yay for LUNCH!

Afterwards, the weather was beautiful and we walked over to the Spy Museum to play!!!

We didn’t take pictures cuz we’re not supposed to, but W couldn’t stop himself from taking pics of me being silly and being a ninja spy crawling thru the shaft.


I passed the quiet test :D I was wicked hush hush :D

We were already hungry by the end of the museum trip.. so after thinking of possibilities, from ramen to pizza to etc etc, we decided to opt for something sweet and cold first before dinner.


W’s mandarin orange commited suicide on the way back to the apt :[

We came back to Curly :D The cutie L was babysitting for the weekend. SUCH A CUTIE!

And the three of us decided to get pho for dinner!  Lots of TEEVEE, playing with Curly and just REEEE-LAXING!!!!!

Large, extra broth, extra sprouts, basil, jalapenos, with EVERYTHING – tendon, tripe, raw beef, etc… AND meat balls <3 OH HAPPY DAY!

I also had a Code Red, the first one I’ve had since Freshman year in college… like what?!… 2001 or 2002?! HAHAHAH.. it’s been awhile… W was scared I’d be off the wall, and I was….

We stayed in…. and played Uno til 4 in the morning :D BEST LIFE EVER!
