This past weekend was one of my close friends’ 23rd birthday! She lives in Boston and since I was home for the holiday, we decided to go up for it! My boyfriend and I stayed at the InterContinental Hotel for the night. It was such a nice hotel! I’m so mad I forgot to save the videos and pictures I had of the room. She had her birthday celebration at Cure Lounge which was only a 8 minute Uber from our hotel. The night was filled with dancing, liquor and laughs. Can’t get much better than that. Definitely a night to remember! I’ve added some pictures of what my boyfriend and I wore out that night (outfit details below) and a video of the birthday girl, of course!
All we wanted to do was go bowling…but somehow we ended up at bar. My best friend and I just wanted to do something different this past Saturday night. I tried calling a cute bowling alley in Georgetown to make a reservation but they were booked up for the rest of the night. So that was a bust. We thought we’d be able to just walk in to Lucky Strike in Chinatown, so we decided we’d try it out. We got there around 7:30 and the girl at the desk lets us know that the wait was going to be to at least 10:30. Bowling that night was no longer an option for us. We tried this really great bar close to Lucky Strike called Morris American Bar. We sat at the bar and our bartender was so sweet, personable and just a really great bartender. On their menu they literally list a drink that you can tell the bartender what you are in the mood for and they will make you a specialized drink based on your description. I added a picture of the drink the bartender made for me and it was made with cucumber, gin and mint. SO delicious. My best friend loved her drink that the bartender made special for her as well. I also added the outfit I wore out that night and it’s details!
I recently went to a birthday brunch at The Mission in DC. This place was meant for me. It serves brunch and it’s a Mexican restaurant. I think Mexican food may be my favorite overall. We had shared pitchers of bottomless margaritas (they had bottomless mimosas too!) and I ordered their bomb a$$ chicken quesadilla. This may have been one of the best quesadillas I’ve ever had! I really loved this place and outside is so cute for when it is warm outside! They have cute outdoor seating under lights and they have a huge vertical sign made of lights saying “Mission”. Super cute. Super Instagramable. I wanted to share with you guys some pictures my friends and I took at the restaurant. I will also add my outfit details below.

Last weekend was my best friend’s birthday. She decided to have her birthday dinner at the Sugar Factory at Pentagon City. This restaurant was really an experience. There is loud, fun music and their drinks are the best! SO yummy and they’re strong enough that they are worth the price.
The food was decent, but I truly think people go there for the experience. If you have your birthday there you are able to chose a dessert and they come out with sparklers on top of your dessert to the song of your choice and they hype you up as you dance to their birthday song. It was a really fun time in there. We went on a Friday so there was a lot of birthdays also being celebrated that night. It kind of added to the experience though. It was like sharing your birthday with other people in the restaurant. Overall a really good time. Here are some pictures from our time at the Sugar Factory!
