Weekend Wrap Up

Thursday

We were really excited about our Texas sized margaritas...
After being cooped up on the couch last week, I was DYING to get out and about this weekend....so badly that we started our weekend shenanigans on Thursday.  We hit up Austin Grill for Texas sized margaritas and some delicious Mexican food.  We hung out in the bar, shared stories, and a whole bunch of laughs!

When we were walking to the metro at the end of the night, we stumbled upon this brass band playing Rack City and This is How We Do It...it was pretty awesome!

Friday

It had been waaaaaaay too long since we'd gone out dancing in Adams Morgan so we headed out to Brass Monkey.  Brass Monkey has always been one of our favorite bars in Adams Morgan...the music always makes you want to dance and the drinks are cheap!  It was the perfect choice for Friday since the guys could hang out in the karaoke bar downstairs and we could dance around like crazy people to "Call Me Maybe" and other terrible yet so good pop songs upstairs.

Saturday

One of our very good friends has his birthday coming up on Tuesday so we spent all day Saturday celebrating!  We started out the afternoon at Bugsy's to watch a bit of The Caps game.  I'd never been to Bugsy's before but it was a neat little bar with a great atmosphere.  The beer was a little more expensive than other bars in Old Town but I would definitely go there again.

We spent the rest of the evening at Murphy's (seriously, do we ever hang out anywhere else!?) and it was so much fun!  It was great to spend some time catching up with old friends and making some new ones.  The crowd at Murphy's is the absolute best.

Sunday

via Yelp
We started out our Sunday morning with breakfast at Elsie's Magic Skillet, a little hole in the wall diner.  Their big greasy but delicious breakfasts were just what we needed to get ourselves going for the day.

Since the weather was so nice, we spent the rest of the afternoon at Mount Vernon.  We toured the mansion, walked around by the water, and sat on Washington's back porch and enjoyed the view.  It really was a perfect day!  And since we just didn't want it to end...we added in a trip to the movies to see The Raven.  It wasn't quite as good as I thought it would be but I enjoyed it!

As you can tell it was a very busy weekend...I almost feel like a need another day off to recover!  What did you do this weekend?
