Rafa & Simone visit

Saturday, December 8th 2007:

Yay, Rafa and Simone visit the DC area! Another Mazur group gathering in a month - always fun times catching up on the ongoings in Boston, and it was Simone's birthday - Happy Birthday!

Iva recommended Clyde's which is in Chevy Chase/Friendship Heights, not too far from us, just a metro stop away. But we decided to drive since we were running a bit late.

Nice balance...never seen dishes carried out quite like that before.

After dinner, we drove Rafa and Simone to their posh boutique hotel, Hotel Rouge, which was not your usual hotel room, with its red (or rouge) curtains, carpet and headboard, a mix of David Lynch-ness, 50's kitch, and modern classics - does that make any sense?

Simone gets a small birthday gift from us - two free passes to the ICA in Boston

The mini-bar included all sorts of interesting items, including a teddy bear-shaped jar filled with soft yummy gummy bears that Simone and I decided to indulge in, and an "intimacy kit" shown above.
