Dinner party and the pig

Nothing like some gourmet suckling pig wrapped in crackle to be a reason to congregate! I enjoyed hanging with women leaders in media and business at Art and Soul near Capitol Hill. Executive Chef Wes Morton wowed the crowd of friends with his 4 courses family style dinner. It included an heirloom melon salad and the milk fed pig with egglplant casserole. There was also a local cheese board with fresh honey comb. Apparently honey is the new thing to pair cheese with these days!

Happy Anniversary Kirk & Mike

Big congrats to Kirk McEwen and Mike O’Meara the funny co-hosts of the Kirk &  Mike Show on 105.9 The Edge. I love being part of this show daily and can honestly say they always help put me in a good mood early in the morning even when I’m fighting it.

PHOTOS: K&M Anniversary Party

The dynamic duo had a little party to celebrate 1 year of being on air together in hometown Herndon at Jimmy’s Old Town Tavern. I brought the whole clan out to celebrate. I think the highlight was the guys got to meet CHIN!  Congrats K&M.. here’s to many more years of cracking us up during DC’s most terrible morning drive.

BRB: Neighbor with a big bite

Okay if you’re gonna break your diet.. and you’re doing it with burgers you must go big or don’t go at all.

Yes that’s my table at the new BRB burger joint in Reston Town Center. BRB which stands for Be Right Burger opened up right next to the ice skating rank.

FREE BURGER: Check in w/ Foursquare

DEALS: Join BRB on Facebook

It’s really a cool concept. There are touch screens for you to place your order and pay for it while you’re waiting in line. The signature items run the hunger gamut.. from the Samurai Turkey Burger, to the Shroomin Burger, the Lobster Roll and the monster Hangover (see below). What I love is that the meat is all-natural, hormone and antibiotic free Angus beef from a local Maryland farm.

Adora who has just started to eat solids took a liking to the kid french fries- cut out like smiley faces! Sauces were amazing too– my fave was the wasabi mayo which is what I dipped my fries in. Oh the best part. Thursday through Friday BRB is open until 3AM! BRB is located at 1820 Discovery Street at the Reston Town Center.
