DC Food Bloggers Happy Hour - Taberna Del Alabardero
In spring of 2005, while living in southern California, I was sent to my company's Washington, DC office to work on a project for a week. The office was located on 18th and I street NW. It was the furthest I had ever travelled for work and the first time I had an expense account. It made me feel important.
I didn't want to waste an opportunity to try a high-end restaurant but wasn't brave enough to venture far from the office or my hotel. Luckily for me, Taberna Del Alabardero was located on the first floor of my office building. I remember loving the charming restaurant. Dining all by myself, I was entertained by all the details of the elaborate decor. I had fish and loved every last bite. It was during this trip that I was offerred a job in DC and made the decision to move here. Four months later, I moved into an apartment on 16th and T Street NW and started a new life on the east coast.
On Wednesday, August 1, 2012, this charming restuarant will be hosting the DC Food Bloggers Happy Hour from 6pm to 8pm. I will be co-hosting with the wonderful Jessica Milby of One Classic Wino. Some specials that will be available during the happy hour include $5 glasses of wine, $4.75 for a glass of sangria, and numerous food specials. The restaurant will also be sending some bites from the kitchen: Pan Tumaka a mi Manera, Brocheta de Pollo Moruno y Patatas al Mojo rojo, Rabo de Toro estofado con Queso Manchego, Bocaditos de Salmon con Tartara, and much more.
Please join us. RSVP here.
