Weekend Recap: good Morning Baltimore

Weekend Recap: good Morning Baltimore

On Friday night Ivan and I joined some friends out for a night out in DC. We went to The Mad Hatter in Adams Morgan. We had been there once before, but it was at about 9:30pm. There was hardly anyone in the bar, so we thought that’s how it always was. We wanted to meet up somewhere low key and then head to a different location. But when we got there we had to wait in line for a while to even get in. It was actually really packed and so we just decided to spend the evening there. I’d recommend it, it was definitely a fun atmosphere.


On Saturday we drove to Baltimore for the Gold Cup. It was our first time in the city, so we decided to go a bit early and have lunch somewhere. We stopped at Sip & Bite, where we tried our first crab cakes.


The Gold Cup was a lot of fun too. I’ve never been to a professional soccer game before and I didn’t really know what to expect. It was the semifinals and the US was playing Cuba. The United States won 6-0 .

I managed to squeeze a good run in on Sunday morning before we headed out for a late lunch in Dupont. We went to Panas Gourmet Empanadas, which was delicious.4

It’s actually pretty cool. They make all their salsas in house and bake their empanadas – they don’t deep fry them. We ordered a meal for two – six empanadas, 4 dips & plantain chips.


2After lunch we headed over to Meridian Hill Park to check out the drum circle. Every Sunday at 3:30 people from all over the city come to the park and play drums together. It’s said to have originated in 1965 after the assassination of Malcolm X.

1I read about it a while ago, but this was the first time we made it down there. It was so energetic and full of life. There were quiet a few people playing, but there were also people dancing and just listening.

The park was gorgeous too. I had to snap a bunch of pictures. Ivan was sort of patient with me ;)



3Gorgeous right? I’m glad we managed to get over there for a drum circle before we left. One more Washington DC thing checked off my list.

    • it was! I was exhausted yesterday, but we had a good time. We’ve been trying to squeeze in as much as we can these last few weeks in DC. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Sarah, I can’t believe y’all were at the Gold Cup!! I watched some of it on television; I might have seen you! HA! Those empanadas look absolutely amazing; I’m so jealous. Looks like you had a wonderful weekend; thanks so much for linking up with the blog!

    • It was a lot of fun! Now Ivan’s trying to decide if we should go to the finals or not. We decided that if it ends up being Mexico vs. the United States, we’ll try and get tickets. Thanks for stopping by Tara :)

  • We watched the US-Cuba soccer game on TV! I bet it was tons better to see it live. Yay for weekends with sports + yummy food!

    • it was fantastic. Now Ivan’s trying to convince me that we NEED to go to the finals. We’re going to wait and see it it will be Mexico vs. the US first. If it is, I’m pretty sure we’ll go :)
