wolo weekend

When you live far away from your family and friends and only have a handful of local friends, you have to start getting creative. Hence, wolo weekends. wolo weekends are where basically Wesley and I don't do anything at all besides exactly what we want to do. Maybe we will go shopping (my choice!), run some errands, go to a farmers market or flea market, happy hour or go out to dinner. Since we are trying to save money right now, we have had a lot of wolo weekends staying in and cooking pizza and tacos - our two favorite meals. A couple of weekends ago though, we decided to go out to dinner. Wesley has recently gotten a promotion (yay!), so we decided it was time to celebrate. We went to a new local restaurant called Acqua al 2. Check out there website and menu here. By saying that this restaurant is one of the best restaurants ever is an understatement. It is situated right in the middle of Eastern Market on 7th Street NE. We got there a little early for our reservation, so we had a glass of wine at the bar. When the table was ready, we were taken back down the narrow restaurant where is the dark and intimate. I started off with the fennel salad (which was HUGE) and Wesley got his favorite, the caprese salad. Both were amazing and fresh. We had a few recommendations on entrees and decided to go with the balsamic steak for Wesley and the blueberry steak for me. Both were cooked perfectly to medium rare - I could eat the blueberry steak EVERY NIGHT. The only thing I would change would be to order a side dish as everything is served al a carte. Instead of dessert, we ended our meal with a glass of prosecco. All in all, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the DC area. A-MAZ-ING.

Cheers to wolo weekends!
