Happy 2008!

[Botanical Gardens with Margo & Fred! Happy New Yearsivus!]
Hope everyone had a great New Years! I know I did and I was able to see most of my friends and ring in a second new year with Sean!Last Saturday Sean and I went to the Russia House for dinner, on Connecticut Ave. I really like the place, if you're looking for something out of the ordinary. Afterwards we went to the Leather Rack and there was drama. Ok, so I go in there looking for a certain item that was not available in my size because I'm kind of a skinny dude compared to most that shop there. So long story short I was treated rudely and (thanks to Sean) I contacted the owner himself and have been given a very nice apology and the situation has been remedied. Plus, I suspect the employee might have his ass fired, hopefully ("It's Adam, bitch!"). So while I was prepared to blog about not shopping there, all is well and the owner seems like a very nice man, I might add. Sean & I also wound up at the Green Latrine Lantern, which I don't think I've rarely been back to since that infamous "Green (With Envy) St. Patricks Day" [those who were there will remember].
Sunday we spent shopping, somehow we found ourselves in Clarendon in Arlington - there are surprisingly a lot of shops there including a very nice Apple Store (I am a huge Mac user). By the way, I love the Cheesecake Factory, but has anyone else thought it's funny that their menu is like 10,000 pages long? And since I didn't have to work the next day I went to Halo and Cobalt with some friends and was introduced to a drink called the Banana Boat.
New Years Eve I went with Margo and Fred's sister Mariah to surprise my boyfriend at his restaurant, demanding to see the chef! :) He treated us to a wonderful lunch and champagne and after he got off work we went over to Margo's for wine and snacks. I am really hoping the pictures from that night from Sean's phone come out because Mariah came with us to Town in a TMZ-fabulous pink wig. We danced and rang in the new year, and I am sure 2008 will be as fabulous as 07 if not more so!
