Weekend Update: Carousels are Cool

This weekend DC got a taste of spring, just a little. With our friends in town and Villanova in the tournament, we headed to the Penn's Quarter Tavern to watch the Wildcats completely dominate UCLA. While the game rocked, the nachos left a lot to be desired, for starters - cheese. But that was the only low point of the weekend. After a visit to the National Archives (yes, the Constitution is still there and still cool to see) we enjoyed the brisk air and revisited our childhoods by riding on the Carousel on the Mall. After a glimpse of the White House, but none of Obama (sorry, Kate!) We tramped off to Georgetown for Thai at our new favorite place, Bangkok Bistro. The mussels were devine as was the whole meal actually, but Bangkok Bistro deserves its own post, so I guess we'll just have to eat there again! We saved dessert for Boccato in Clarendon and indulged in some heavenly gelato. There flavors are so innovative and delicious that they too merit another post and another visit. In short, it was a lovely weekend with friends that warm weather made even sweeter.
