Barrio en Fuego

Barrio is now open on Capitol Hill... And while I could go on & on & on, sometimes I think photos really speak for themselves:

First things first. Cocktails.

The Sangre de Agave. Bermuda dark rum, repesado tequila, cassis, lime juice. Yum.

Moving on to a little something to whet the palate... A nice ceviche, perhaps?

Might I recommend the Ahi Tuna Crudo? The meatiness of the avocado, the brightness of the orange, with tamarind and sesame seeds... divine.

And last, but by no means least, the tacos. With a range of fillings from housemade chorizo to duck confit, these aren't your taco truck standby tacos.

Stop by at happy hour to get the tacos at a steal, $2!

Inauguration Day Parties

Man o man! Inauguration Day was out of control around the city. I went to Tini Bigs and Hula Hula's party that featured the much talked about "Throw the Shoe at Bush" contest. It was packed with revelers. The $5 Obama-Tini's were an added bonus. To learn more about Tini Bigs visit
