Since my family moved out to Leesburg, VA, miles and miles from where I grew up, meeting up with old friends from high school has been a bit of a hike. However, It worked out that I got to see some of them today while I was home for the weekend. Kat Lobes decided to celebrate her birthday at The Wine Kitchen in the heart of downtown Leesburg (just a few miles from my house!).
I’d heard great things about the wine bar, but had never ventured out there myself.
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere…
I loved their simple philosophy.
We did just that!
Much to my delight, we were seated right by a large, beautiful window, which let in tons of natural light. Hallelujah!
I ordered the lunch special. Shrimp, crab and tuna over mixed greens, tossed in lemon and oil.
This was a refreshing salad–cool and light. Just what I needed on a hot summer day.
I wanted to get the Seared Ahi Tuna but since I always order that, I decided to branch out. It looked great though and Erin gave me her seaweed salad!
The birthday girl ordered Chicken and Waffles.
For dessert, we ordered all three desserts to share.
Good food, good wine and good company.
Happy Birthday, Kat Lobes!
Today was a reminder that I need to visit downtown Leesburg more often and that the hike to meet up with old friends is always worth it.
…and that I really love photographing people.
Tell me…your favorite type of wine!
