Merry Belated Christmas!!!

I hope that everyone enjoyed their Christmas holiday. I sure did and was happy to have a few days off to celebrate. This year I was able to check out a new restaurant with a friend that doesn't have family in the area. We actually began this semi-tradition a few years back, and I was happy to hang out.

We started the night with a reservation at Succotash, a southern styled restaurant at the National Harbor. Now you all know that I know Southern food and this was nowhere near what I grew up on but still good. We started the meal with deviled egg appetizers. Now these eggs weren't your ordinary egg, I believe they had liverwurst in them. Different, but good all the same!!!

For our actual Christmas dinner we ordered burgers. Funny thing is, we hard burgers a previous Thanksgiving so I guess we are starting a few traditions. The burger we chose was topped with pimento cheese and bacon jam. Let me tell you, this burger was EVERYTHING!!!

We also treated ourselves to a bit of dessert which included a red velvet waffle and ice cream with a side of chicory coffee.

Since the night was young we decided to check out the new MGM and grab a drink. My fav lounge inside the MGM is Felt because of the grown and sexy vibe it gives off. If you're in the area, definitely check it out, its definitely LBD appropriate!!! My drink at the moment has to be the Moscow Mule with a splash of pineapple. Just give me those and a beach and you have my heart!!!

Moscow Mule equals perfection!!!

I hope you enjoyed you day as much as I did with friends, family, and food. Happy Holidays!!!
