The first day in DC was great! Visiting Arlington National Cemetery was the highlight of the day for me. Dinner at the Founding Farmers was AMAZING! As you can see, Mohammed finished his dinner...and mine!!
I still have leftovers in my room if anyone wants some amazing lobster macaroni! :D -Lexi
I agree, loved the dinner at Founding Farmers. Everything I had was delicious and I love the idea that it is all locally sourced food!Maggie Thomason
The first post is mine...sorry I forgot to add my name at the end!!
What a meal! Can't say you didn't get your money's worth! Yohei demolished his entire lobster and dessert! It'll be a rough walk back...Robert Hayes
He sure did haha mine is completely Gone! :-)
This is nick lol
The food was delicious but I don't know where you guys put it all! -Nichole
Yeah my meal looked so huge but it was not so crazy to eat them all i think. In fact, Mohamed ate more than me! Yohei
The resturant was really unique. I was doing it big by eating my food and eating my friends food after they are done with it. The design of the restaurant was unique. I enjoyed the food and Iam happy for making everybody happy.
Mohammed always does it big. Go big with Mo! ;)-Katie
The way you were eating the food I am surprised you actually had a chance to taste it. It's alright though because it made it a more interesting night.Crystal Gordon
Mohammed, I'm happy you enjoyed your dinner, mine, and Crystal's. You should be stuffed for the next week!!
I have never seen anyone be able to eat that much in one setting. Just back away from the dessert.Crystal Gordon
i try to do it big
That first day was amazing!! Founding Farmers was delicious! I don't think I've ever eating that much food in my life. It was so nice to go lay down in bed after that exhausting day! -Erin
My favorite thing about Founding Farmers was how unique and fresh each dish was! I was so excited to be able to try things that I hadn't gotten a chance of trying before, such as the bleu cheese stuffed bacon-wrapped dates. Now that's a mouthful. They were my favorite of the night, though their cheesecake was a very close second. I also made the decision (mistake?) of ordering The Clementine, which sounds like a pretty innocent drink, right? Wrong! My mouth needed recovery time after that chili-infused tequila...-Katie
I loved being able to try all different things than I would usually eat! Including a very interesting beer which sounds like it as a better drink than the spicy tequila! It was a great first day, and the dinner was a perfect way to end it!Maggie Luehrs
We definitely hit the ground running when we landed in DC. Starting our adventure with a trip to Arlington Cemetery and being able to see JFK's grave, the eternal flame, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the changing of the guards and finishing with a trip to the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial was beyond words. Capping the day off with a trip to Founding Farmer's restaurant was a perfect end to an amazing day!
Susan couldn't have put it better when we landed in DC. Arlington Cemetery was more than just any cemetery. It was huge. Everywhere you looked there was another and another and another headstone. We were able to see the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which was very ceremonial. Next on the agenda was the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial. I personally did not care for the design. It lacked shade and made it hard to figure out exactly what it was. The one good thing it did have was small pools of water underneath the benches, which at this point was thankful to be able to sit down.Crystal Gordon
I went to the most secure place in America, and I couldn't believe the terror incident happened there. Pentagon made me feel sad because it doesn't look like before. The DC metro is not as busy as I expected.
Founding Farmers was so delicious, I loved stepping outside of my comfort zone with food and trying different things. Knowing everything was local food made it even better! I definately needed a big meal after our first day, I never knew I could walk as much as we did that day!Maggie Luehrs
