It’s not often that Nancy’s birthday falls on a Friday and the following Monday is MLK day meaning a long weekend to celebrate Nancy’s birthday. I had been trying for weeks to get Nancy to commit to something for her birthday but she really didn’t want to. She would have been content to sit at home but Pat was able to wrangle her into going out to celebrate with the family.
We started the night off in Round Hill, about 45 minutes the way our drunk crow flew. We started at a winery and slowly work our way back home traveling down route 7. We took the country roads to Bogati Bodega & Vineyard for a couple bottles of wine. We settle on Fat Ass which was pretty good. While not to far for us, everyone was able to make it in a reasonable amount of time. I believe Pat mentioned she left at 10:30am to make it on time.
After that we headed to Leesburg for a very nice dinner at Tuscarora Mills. Nancy had been here once before for a baby shower and raved about the food. Everyone was excited about this place and I must say it didn’t disappoint. Greg meet an old co-worker who bought two bottle of wine for the table. Besides the table being to small for 6 people, the food was excellent. We got the full spread with apps, main course, desserts and coffee. All of which were very good and while a little expensive, was worth the price.
After a nice dinner we headed across the street to MacDowell Brew Kitchen for a night cap. The place was a little busy so we headed up stairs and found there was free comedy show going on. We got a round and enjoyed the show. I don’t remember the name of the guy, he was ok. He had his moments but it was certainly worth the price of admission.
By the end of the show everyone bailed. It was pretty late and everyone else had a long drive ahead of them. Nancy and I decided to head to Clyde’s Willow Creek for one last set of drinks since it didn’t close till 2am. Nancy has tried to get me out there to see her happy hour crew and I was happy to oblige. I don’t know if we meet any of the regulars but I did meet one of the happy hour bartenders, Jeff. Definitely not my scene but the people watching was pretty good.
Eventually we made it home after a long night out, close to 2:00 in the morning I believe. It was an eventful evening with lots of stops. I wonder what we will do next year, Nancy’s birthday should fall on a Saturday so that is a full day of activities. We packed four things into eight ours, can’t imagine what we will do with a full 24 hours.
