Suck the head, pinch the tails! Ok.. so I didn’t do that first part.. but I sure did enjoy cracking some mud bugs at the Crawfish Boil. Hosted by “The Cajun Experience” in Dupont, the party was fully dressed with the sounds of Lousiana and a menu made to please. I tried the Poboy sandwichs and gator bites which taste like chicken. I wasn’t bold enough to do the frog legs though. We saw Louisiana Senator David Vitter with his family.. not only dining but also dancing to the New Orleans band Zachary Smith and the Dixie Power Trio. Photo Credit: Dave Phillipich
The storms couldn’t put a damper on the red hot grand opening of harth, the new signature restaurant at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner. We were greeted by fire breathers and dancers. The red carpet came out for the celebration that drew hundreds of hungry Washingtonians. Guests enjoyed a sampling of what harth has to offer- food that supports local farmers! LOVIN THAT! One of my faves: Cheddar and Chives Popovers made with poached eggs, sundried tomato hollandaise and bacon jam. Loved the contrast of wood fire burning ovens and dripping ice bars in the lobby. SAKS presented an eye-pleasing show with this summer’s most stylish bikinis and big hats. The cool finale– two ice carvers jammin’ out while creating a sculpture for the audience. Loved having my sister Tricia who is visiting from Texas join me. She was a great help with Adora while I shot video.
Mardi Gras celebrations don’t have to necessarily be in New Orleans… Capital Hill’s 18th Amendment Restaurant and Bar certainly thinks differently. Owner Vicky Henderson believes Fat Tuesday is a great way to invite patrons to take a break from the DC scene and escape into a little bit of New Orleans culture while sampling traditional creole platters. Celebrity Chef Teddy Folman helped revamp and refresh the restaurant’s menu for mouth watering Lousiana favorites.

SPOTTED: Hillary and Bill acting like they were on a date at Peacock Cafe in Georgetown and left clean plates! I hear from witnesses that they decided to pop by after Hillary’s mom ate there last week. Peacock was one of Chelsea’s favorite eateries. We’ve been seeing a lot Hillary lately… she spoke (see my tv report below) on Monday at National Geographic HQ’s about being profiled in the new documentary ‘Inside the State Department.’ We should’ve got reaction from her on Tim Gunn’s critique of her Capitol Hill style LOL!
