the roundup.

It has been another long long week. Work has been a beast lately, Ben and I have been on the move, and we are trying to get out for runs which means super early mornings, in short I haven't had much time to post this week. Lucky for you, tonight is actually the first night I have been alone in the house and I am playing catch up. So here we go with a couple highlights...

Earlier this week, we went to the private opening of the new Shake Shack over in Chinatown.

It was fantastic. Free milkshakes, burgers, fries, wine, beer, ice cream...this is called starting the week strong!

We also went to Emmy's rooftop and holy moly, talk about a is a 360 of the city!

I also absolutely love this building that was renovated into new apartments...
We were going to have a date night on Wednesday but I got a terrible headache in the middle of the day. Ben was very sweet about it and we went low-key. We walked down to H street to try and H&Pizza. Have you all been yet? They also just opened U&Pizza. Definitely go when you need a cheap but good pizza fix.

After dinner, we hurried up to Union Market before it closed to get a scoop of ice cream from Trickling Springs Creamery (which we have now decided is the best ice cream in DC!). It started to rain, so we stood eating our ice cream under the awning and when we caught a break in the storm, we headed for the house. It actually started to pour about a block in and get this, a random couple, pulled over and offered us a ride home!

And last night, we went out to celebrate Josh's 31st birthday! We headed to the Red Hen...

We had saved the Red Hen to go to with Erin and Josh...that said, Josh, ended up missing his own celebration and had to work late. We all loved the atmosphere and vibe...the food was good...and it definitely has a lot of potential. (Note: great date spot for all of you out on the market!) and Ben said his negroni was outstanding.

And there you have it...thank god its the weekend!
