September is my favorite month…not because it is my birthday month but because I love September weather!
My sole requirement/request for my birthday is to have the correct number of candles on my cake! This is a chocolate cake from Ji Reh.
Nationals Game with friends! Hot and humid that day, but still fun and we had really awesome seats.
Our view…pretty good for $11 tickets. Section 108-109, I believe.
Best part of my birthday this year (besides celebrating with my favorite people) was getting to try two restaurants I have been dying to go to…Blue Duck Tavern and Founding Farmers.
I went to brunch at Blue Duck Tavern with my family…I got the eggs benedict…pretty good.
We went for brunch so the prices are very reasonable but I think more than their food, I really liked the ambiance and interior of the restaurant. It was a very chic, clean, open-concept design. Almost felt like I was in my rich friend’s ny flat with a huge gourmet kitchen. One of the cleanest kitchens (and they want their customers to know because one of the entrances cuts through the kitchen)!

My mom got biscuits and gravy…yum…biscuits were soo good. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures of my brother and dad’s orders but they got some steak in a pan dish? I do remember it being really good…
Ahh, Founding Farmers…THE restaurant that I have been meaning to try for the longest time but never got around to it…I went with my favorite girlfriends…felt so happy and content. good food- good people
Prices are reasonable, the interior is trendy and feels clean. The outside walls are glass, and there is an upstairs. I really loved their food AND the interior the same.
I got their butternut squash ravioli with some sage sauce. It was REALLY good…I didn’t feel disgustingly full after like when I eat other pasta or ravioli since it was filled with squash.
My friend got chicken and waffles which is one of their most popular dishes..It was good and surprisingly a good pairing–waffles and fried chicken with maple syrup.
My other friend got the steak enchilada? which was very good as well. sorry for the bad pictures–all pictures are taken from my phone per usual.
Overall a good birthday weekend! I’m extremely blessed.
