Happy Hour and Nooshi sushi

We've been working a lot lately and we're really tired. Nonetheless, we finally got out on the town this month. We decided to go check out the Heart of Dixie Happy Hour at the Eighteenth Amendment bar in downtown DC. It was put on by the Alabama and Auburn DC alumni associations. Apparently they do it once a year.

The place reminded me a lot of college. Very dark and very loud. We had to yell to talk to everyone. The place was mostly Alabama alumni like I thought it would be. Makes sense. There aren't a lot of farms up here in DC.

The best part of the whole deal was that they had a tab set up so we got free beer! What a city!

Afterwards I took Kristy out to a sushi place that I used to check out near work called Nooshi. Those of you who read the New Orleans blog (which I imagine is everyone) know that this is still a relatively new thing to me. The funny thing is that I'm actually acquiring a taste for it. Those following at home will be happy to know that I have mastered the chopsticks.

You all know what's coming next.

We shared some shrimp tempora roll, soft shell crab roll and spicy crunchy shrimp roll. Also had a little General Tso chicken. Everything was awesome.

I'm really getting in to this sushi thing. I just couldn't contain my excitement.

Kristy enjoyed the food but most of all she is a huge fan of their lemonade.

We really like Nooshi but it's a long way from our apartment. If we're back in the area any time soon we'll check it out again.
