Go Tri Surfside!

28 07 2011

Last Wednesday Chris and I decided to head to Surfside in Glover Park, D.C. for dinner.

We had been there many times before and knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into by going back: good margaritas, stellar chips and guac and really good Caribbean salads, burritos, quesadillas and tacos. As usual, I left completely satisfied, so when a bunch of our (Steph and my) tri friends decided to get together for dinner and drinks last night, I suggested Surfside! I can’t get enough! The sign on the wall was a big selling point for the group…

Steph, Victoria and I decided to get in a quick swim before meeting the rest of the girls for dinner. Apparently I did not get the memo about the matching suits…

While waiting for the group to arrive, we decided to get a head start on the 1/2 price pitchers.

The salt on the rims of the glasses is always the icing on the cake.  We were all super hungry but some of us had never met before and others had not seen each other in a while, so we ended up polishing off a good portion of the pitchers while chatting before we even ordered our food.

We were also celebrating Emily’s amazing race this past weekend at Ironman Lake Placid. If you have not checked out her race recap, get over to her blog and check it out!

We did finally make it past the drinks and get some food. Like I said, the menu at Surside is amazing and even better, it is right there on the wall for you to see.

The food is delicious and I love that the dining is casual. You simply walk up to the counter to order and within 10 minutes a delicious meal is ready for you to devour. If you choose not to order one of the already designed menu items, you can create your own salad, tacos, quesadillas or burritos.

The food was not surprisingly delicious, including the platters of chips and guac that were ordered for the table to share.

We only managed to get one group shot and for some reason it came out RED. So odd…

Of course, a night of dinner and drinks with triathletes would not be complete without dessert, so we piled in Stephs car and headed into Georgetown for some Ice Cream/Fro Yo at Thomas Sweet.

I think that I am going to actually go out on a limb right here and say that Thomas Sweet is my favorite fro yo in D.C. Big statement right there! They have about 50 flavors of ice cream, 15 flavors of frozen yogurt and a complete toppings bar with every topping you can think of. I probably should have called this post “Go Tri Surfside AND Thomas Sweet.” Seriously, do it.

Ice cream was enjoyed!

take 1!

Much better!

It was such a fun night. We all agreed that we had stayed out way past our usual bed times, but I think it was worth it! There is nothing like a good night out with good friends and good food.

Question of the Day: Have you ever met someone via the blog world before meeting them in person? Did it turn out how you expected??
