What I'm dying to try...

As you can imagine, I would eat out almost every night if I could, but 12 hour days at work mean that most nights I can barely drag myself home for a bowl of cereal. So please, let me live vicariously through you! Try these new places I'm DYING to check out...

DC-3 - this new spot on Barracks Row specializes in fancy-pants hot dogs for not so fancy prices. Their Chicago-7 dog sounds like my idea of heaven... fat kid heaven that is.

We, The Pizza - from what I've been hearing, Spike and his boys have done it again. We, The Pizza, located right next to Spike's infamously delicious Good Stuff Eatery, has everything a girl could want. I mean, the cast iron pizza called "For the Greeks in Us Pie" has pretty much everything I never knew I wanted on a pizza. Can't wait.

Dangerously Delicious Pies - I wanted past this place the other day and the aroma was maddening! This Baltimore shop's H Street location has all the sweet and savory pies and quiches your heart could desire. Plus, who doesn't want to be served by THIS GUY.

Friday night was dreadfully cold, and as the boyfriend is ill, soup was the only logical option. Pho was the obvious first choice, but after hearing raving reviews for months, we decided to try DC Noodles.

His choice: Rice noodles in a spicy soup with shrimp and fishballs

My choice: Green curry (i just can't resist) with chicken and squid ink spaghetti

Verdict: The swanky atmosphere was perfect for a Friday night, but I wish they had a casual dining version next door for quick take-out without the fuss. The food was DELICIOUS and the portions are so big, I JUST polished off the second half of my curry.

On this day, 15 years ago I would most certainly have been clandestinely trading Halloween candy under my desk and nursing a tummy ache. Nowadays I get my candy where I can and I am ecstatic about the new Georgetown Candy Bar where grown-ups can stock up on goodies in a swanky environment rather than under their desks. Sweet!

Day of the Dead

Who needs an excuse to eat Mexican food?

No one is the obvious answer, but in case you are one of those weirdos who only has tacos on Cinco de Mayo, here is one more reason to treat yourself to margaritas y comida mexicana: DAY OF THE DEAD. You can find specials for "Dia de los Muertos" at:

Oyamel at 7th and D Street, NW. Enjoy their new mole negro con guajolote. I don't know what guajolote is but I'm sure it's divine.

Rosa Mexicana at 7th and F Street, NW where you can get a cocktail called "The Great Herradura Pumpkin" that sounds perfect for a fall day like today.
