This weekend my sister came to visit! As soon as she arrived we ushered her to Lyon Hall for a boozy brunch.
Joe’s Man-mosa is on the far left. What makes it manly? Sobieski vodka, Cointreau, sparkling wine, orange juice, rocks.
My Orange Crush: Smirnoff Orange, St. Germain, lemon and soda, ordered because I think Orangeades are one of the best beverages in the world.
We couldn’t resist the donuts after we saw a group eating them while we waited for our table. Cameron and Joe are dangerous enablers. Flavors: mocha, cheesecake, papaya and maple. I mean….they didn’t last long.
I had to try the Bloody Mary too – it’s research in my continuing search for the best bloody. It was good with a healthy dose of horseradish but was a bit on the small side. Beer chaser is a nice touch.
We also took Cam to the movies to see OZ in 3-D. Aren’t we the coolest? I’ll let my film school sister answer any questions you have about the movie. I’m just pumped we have a reclining seats-movie theatre within walking distance.
We strolled around Arlington, soaking up the sunshine (honestly, Cam and I got burned) and marvelling at the St. Patty’s Day outfits on display. When did St. Patty’s day become an occasion for women to dress like leprechaun-prostitutes? Seriously.
Over the course of the weekend we continued to explore VA, threw a pizza-dinner party, watched the Devils crush the Tarheels and played some Scrabble (the Devils did not win this game.) The weekend flew by – thanks for visiting Cam, I promise we will do more “cultural” things your next trip!
