Masa 14

I finally ate here for brunch!

My friend Tammy and I brought our hunger and thirst to brunch early Sunday afternoon ready to tackle the all-you-can-eat brunch menu and unlimited mimosas and bloody mary’s. (Coffee, tea, iced tea, and all coke products are also unlimited).

As mentioned before, every Saturday and Sunday, Masa 14 does a $35 per person unlimited food and beverage brunch. After hearing so many rave reviews about this brunch, I wanted to investigate! Verdict? Tammy and I weren’t disappointed. We left full and a little tipsy… Continue reading

My two friends (and former colleagues) were hosting their blog’s first annual 5k this past weekend and even though its race date was a week earlier than when I was supposed to run a 5k, I wanted to do the race to support them and to get some more running practice in.

It was cold outside, but the run was so much fun! To top it all off my friends were holding a raffle for a $50 gift card to City Sports and guess who won?! Yours truly. 🙂 Continue reading

I went to a new (to me) restaurant with Tommy and a couple of our friends in Shirlington. Shirlington is a neighborhood in Arlington, which isn’t too far from D.C. (It took us 15 minutes to drive here for dinner).

Cheestique is described as a cheese boutique that is a restaurant as well as a shop. Bottom line, it is a place for all cheese lovers! There are 2 locations, the Shirlington one and the original Cheestique in Del Ray, a neighborhood in Alexandria (also not too far from D.C.) Continue reading
