Washington D.C. (Is the Way to Be)

Posted Mar 30 2011 9:23pm

I took an obscene amount of photos this past weekend.

What’s more obscene however, is that I cannot for the Everythingtarian life of me selectively choose which ones to show you. I can’t not show you our epic trip to the horribly-scripted, yet decadently delicious set of the TLC reality show DC Cupcakes . I can’t not show you Friday night’s lovely blogger dinner meet-up at Pizza Paradiso . I can’t not show you our 2nd cupcake venture, this time to Washington D.C.’s #1 rated vegan restaurant, Sticky Fingers .

Therefore, I shall show you it all.

I’ve got my after-dinner blood orange margarita in my left hand and my right hand free to type, so let’s get down to business…

Georgetown Cupcake is everything a cupcakery should be.

While the show is obnoxiously scripted, their cupcakes are seriously legit. With flavors like chocolate banana, cherry blossom, hibiscus mango and salted caramel, their cupcakes are the perfect size (not too big, not too little) and boast the best frosting I have ever had.

Looking over the menu, I hemmed, hawed and hummed (Backstreet Boys’ “I Want it That Way,” if you must know) over my final decision.

Do I want something fruity or chocolatey?

Should I go for a classic cupcake like vanilla or something seasonal like Irish Creme?

Did I choose the right cupcake?

Will I ever find eternal happiness if I choese the wrong cupcake?

Luckily, as soon as I had my chocolate PB chip cupcake with peanut butter frosting in hand alongside a hot cup of chai tea, I was perfectly content with my choice.

I mean, look at the size + number of those PB chips.

My cupcake comrades, Madeline and Evan , got the red velvet and gluten-free lava fudge (respectively) and agreed the cupcakes were some of the best we’ve ever had. It’s no wonder each one of us licked the cupcake wrapper clean.

On Friday night, I had the lovely pleasure of meeting some fellow D.C.-area bloggers for dinner and to discuss in-depth, foodie-related things like chia seeds, nutritional yeast and the wonders of coconut milk ice cream.  Ya know, the things you can’t talk to your normal friends about otherwise they think you have turned into some kind of blogging weirdo.

Madeline , Beth , Sarah + Mindy

Christine , Evan , Alex + moi

Guilty as charged.

Since it was the night before the big sports bra-less race , I eschewed the alcohol and instead carbo-loaded with four slices of majorly delicious pizza.

That and three Diet Cokes, one of which the waiter brought with two straws for me + Madeline .

I know, we are too cute for words.

Just wait until next post when I recap Philly.

Then you are really going to be in for a {vegan French toast breakfast} treat.
