Greek Festival!

Last night I checked out the Greek Festival at St. Sophia's church to learn about Greek culture. Just kidding! I went to eat Greek food :D

I had a delicious gyro - with lots of tzatziki sauce and feta cheese :D I also had a BAKLAVA SUNDAE! Vanilla ice cream, crushed up baklava and honey syrup! It was fantastic. There was also Greek entrees available inside the church, but I found out about it after devouring my gyro :)

They were getting the lambs ready last night for grilling today - I saw them chop the head off of a skinned lamb and then put it on a skewer :-O

Festival is at 36th and Massachusetts Ave NW and runs 12-9pm today and Sunday. Check it out!

Ray's Hell Burger

So...I think I've discussed the pure joy that comes from eating at Ray's Hell Burger, right?
Turns out Obama and Joe Biden went to check it out! They probably read about it on my blog.... :)

Burger night at Shooter McGee's

Tonight I needed chicken wings, so I went to Shooter McGee's on Duke St in Alexandria near the Landmark Mall. Unfortunately, it was also half price burger I needed both!

They had a list of about 10 half-pound burgers with various combination of toppings - most of them including both cheese AND bacon. I got a blue cheese and bacon burger, without the bacon, cooked medium. My friend got a burger with jack cheese, sauteed mushrooms and bacon cooked medium rare. Both of our burgers came cooked as requested :) They were served with fries, cole slaw or baked beans (gross!). I got the coleslaw, but I wish I got the fries - they looked delicious!

To get the special, you need to order a drink. Burgers were regularly listed for $9.50, so this was a great deal. The waiter was excellent - my Sprite was refilled as soon as it was empty :) I've gone a few times, mostly for wing night, and have never left disappointed. Check it out!
