Yesterday, we had a special guest appearance by Kath and Matt who were passing through town!
So I got dressed up to meet Kath, Matt and my other bloggie friends out for dinner.
We hit up Providence Cafe, a popular local restaurant that I’ve always wanted to try.
A couple people at the table ordered appetizers and passed them around to share.
Spinach dip with colorful tortilla chips.
Crab dip with garlic bread.
I had a glass of Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc Viognier.
I think Viognier is my new fave…and Kath says Virginia is known for great viogniers. Guess I need to make a trip to Virginia soon! 😉
Their little bread boules were so cute.
For my entree, I ordered the crab cake salad. I had a really tough time picking an entree because everything sounded so good, but ultimately, I wanted to save room for dessert, so I went with the salad.
The salad was wonderful. The crab cakes were delicious, and I really liked the combination of veggies with the corn topping, plus a mustard-y salad dressing.
Jen and I ordered 2 desserts to share: a rich “Come to the Dark Side” chocolate cake…
…and the special dessert – Kahlua Apple Croustade with CInnamon Whipped Cream.
Both desserts were delicious. I especially liked that cinnamon whipped cream. I’ll have to try re-create that at home some time!
The whole gang!
Three cheers for awesome bloggie friends! 🙂

I love your outfit! Can you share where you got that dress? It’s adorable on you 🙂
Hey Bree! Definitely! I got this dress from Urban Outfitters, but like last year, so they probably won’t have the same dress. But, I bet they’ll have a lot of similar dresses. 🙂
I love meeting new bloggies! So fun and you look super cute — love those boots and belt with that dress!
that apple dessert looks amazing… so pretty too!
You look so cute in that outfit!! I always try on dress + boot combos and it never looks right, but you pull it off so well!
I practically drooled on my keyboard when I saw that slice of cake on Kath’s blog last night. You ladies are lucky 🙂
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Aww thanks Gabriela! 🙂
Virginia does have some amazing wines! Within 2 hours of DC, there are probably at least 40 different wineries and vineyards. I love it!
Whoa! That’s a lot…how wonderful!?
That Kahlua Apple Croustade has my mouth watering!
