Birthday Done The Right Way

So sorry for neglecting my blog for so long, things have been crazy over the past couple of months. Just Crazy!

My Friends

Some of the Gang!

There is nothing like celebrating your birthday with your favorite people in the world!  A couple of months ago I decided to do just that and planned for a weekend in D.C with a couple of college friends.  I had no idea what I was in for!  It was non stop fun as soon as I steppped off the plane.  There was shopping, great food and tons of random craziness.  The shopping was great because I found the perfect outfit and shoes within minutes–but the food is what I was really there for.

Washington D.C is a mecca for the culinary world. It is the closest thing–outside of New York City– to a culinary expo.  The first night I was there my friends Lindsey and Nyemale introduced me to what is known as Lauriol Plaza!  The wait was ridiculous and the line was outside the door (which is a very good sign) but the MARGARITAS are what I remember the most.  The rest of my friends met us there and we stayed there talking until the wee hours of the morning.

I have to say that the partying was top notch, but the memories that I took from that trip were strictly from the food excursions.  The whole trip all I heard about was Rogue Burger…..Rogue Burger….Rogue Burger.  It was getting to the point where I was dreaming about hand-made burgers and sweet potato fries.  So of course you know where I spent my last few hours in town, at Rogue Burger!

Located on Connecticut Ave. was this quaint little burger joint with a retro feel to it.  When I first walked in I thought it would be easy enough to chose what I wanted and be done with it, but boy was I wrong.  There were so many options to choose from that I almost spent an hour deciding how I wanted my burger prepared.  I ended up deciding on their signature Rogue Burger with ground turkey rather than ground beef.  An order of sweet potato fries and a soda to round out the order.

The Best Burger Ever!

Sweet Potato Fries

The perfect compliment to the burger

There are no words to describe how amazing this burger was.  I mean I have never had a more succulent burger in my life (sorry dad).  The sweet potato fries were a perfect compliment to the complex flavors of the burger and rounded out my meal perfectly!  It was the best send-off any girl could ask for!

I will remember this trip forever!


Chow Baby!

Outside of Chow Baby!

Well college is officially over!  When I got home , the first place that I had to go was Chow Baby.  Chow Baby is an American Stir Fry restaurant that has the most amazing MOJITOS…oh yea and their food is pretty good too!  Chow Baby is a place where you can be as creative as your mind allows you to be, and I think that is why I like it so much.  The experience was heightened with the presence of some of my high school friends.  Most of us haven’t seen each other in 4 years so it was a great time to catch up.  We had some great food and amazing company.  I recommend that you indulge yourself in some Chow Baby if you can!  My friends and I have decided to make this a monthly thing so we can keep in touch and try out other great Atlanta eateries.

Spring has Sprung!!!

I know it’s been a while since my last post, but school has been consuming my life for the past couple of months :(. But it’s official . . . Spring is finally here!!!  Last month I went out with one of my friends to this new restaurant BD’s Mongolian Grill.  OMG the food was amazing.

I love being able to pick and chose what ingredients should be put in my meal and watching as it’s cooked right in front of my eyes.  Although the food was extremely appetizing, the drinks are what I remember the most.

I had a Pomegranate Lemonade and boy was it refreshing!!! So, if you can find a Bd’s Mongolian Grill around I suggest you go and try it for yourself because it’s both affordable and delicious.
