There are many reasons to love living in DC and Kelly and I try to take advantage of them as much as possible.

One place we love is Barmini by Jose Andres. It’s a boutique cocktail bar where they employ old as well as new school techniques to create new cocktails or do the old ones right.

We were there Saturday with our friends Amber and Adam and had lots of fun. My best friend Brian is coming in for Thanksgiving and we’ve already made reservations. It is NOT the kind of bar you can just walk up to and find a seat. If we’re looking for availability two weeks before we want to go we usually can only get a reservation for 11:30 or midnight.

Tough place to get into but you’re quite happy once you are.
