DC


Hungry Mike

Fig flat bread


White(chocolate) house

Lamb w leeks and lamb sausage. Never too much lamb...

Carnegie institute, they were having a black tie event, I really wanted to sneak in!


Halibut with squid ink rice

(Sorry the blog app put everything in a weird order)

I got in Monday night for my conference, i learned a lot overall! There were a few talks from the FDA. my background was previously medical device pkg (Covidien), it was a good knowledge base of pharmaceutical pkg. I was able to meet a lot of supplier's that I've been working with over the phone, found a few new ones too.

Tuesday night we went out for tapas in Georgetown (no pics), weather was perfect, walked along the river afterwards.

Last night my high school friend's brother, Mike took me out. He just graduated from the culinary institute of arts in NYC, currently a waiter at a steak house in the four seasons.

We walked around for a few miles then ended up having dinner at birch and barley:

Big beer restaurant, roughly 500 different bottles, 30 page beer menu! Was happy to see a lot from both Michigan and Colorado! I let Mike order everything: soft shell crab, duck confit, fig flat bread pizza, halibut (was awesome with jolly Pumpkin's saison), then leg of lamb with Bell's Porter. Had to walk it off afterwards, still full this morning haha.

My flight is delayed this morning, hence the long blog! I think the Lansing airport might be bigger that Reagan, this place is terrible...
