Happy, rainy, Monday to those that live in the DC-area! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
One of the highlights of our weekend was Tommy and me enjoying “Parents Night Out” (PNO) that Ava’s preschool held on Saturday afternoon. From 4:30-8:30pm, the school and teachers opened their doors and arms to watch the kiddos, while the parents got four “kid-free” hours to themselves. I had heard about PNO from several friends whose kids preschools also offered this perk to parents throughout the year and thought it was such a good idea and a great opportunity to take! 🙂 While Ava was having fun with a PJ & Pasta Party at school, we left Luke in the trusty hands of our nanny, Wendy, while we headed to Georgetown.
I first had to make a quick stop at the Wing to pick up my garage parking pass. Yes – that’s right – I now have a dedicated garage to park in when I go to Georgetown. (Wing members were offered a discount with Colonial Parking.) This will be a major game changer, as half the battle and frustration of going to Georgetown is finding parking that is not an arm and a leg. And let’s not even talk about how much money I was spending on Ubers going and leaving Georgetown previously!
Once Tommy and I had parked our car in the garage, we headed over to the Apple Store because I had a very special and big purchase to make – I bought a new laptop!
I had been needing and wanting a new computer for a long time, but hadn’t gotten around to it. Ideally I wanted to find a time where Tommy and I could go sans kiddos, so we would have a chance to really look at the products and make comparisons. Thank you PNO!
After I bought my awesome new computer, we headed to dinner. We originally planned on stopping at the Rye Bar in the Rosewood Hotel for a cocktail and then seeing what food they had there to eat, but we found out it was closed for renovations! As we were walking trying to find a Plan B, we stumbled upon Dyllan’s Raw Bar Grill, which has only been open for 2 months.
We were pretty impressed! The food was delicious and the portions, especially the sides, were very generous. We had a minor hiccup with the service while we were ordering drinks, but then it was smooth sailing!
The ambiance of the restaurant was what you would expect an upscale grill to be in Georgetown – dark, but not too dark, comfy booths, brick walls, and an inviting fireplace.
After dinner, we stopped for dessert at Laduree for some tasty macarons!
Tommy also did a little shopping of his own before we headed back to pick up Ava at preschool, before heading home to see our Little Man. Speaking of, Wendy sent us a number of photos while we were in Georgetown and this one was by far our favorite.
Hope you have a great day!
