Bodega: Que Romantico?

There is nothing quite as awkward/amusing/completely entertaining as watching a couple go on their first date.

Look, we've all been there. What do you do? Oh, I'm in marketing. I love traveling! Are you a Scorpio?

Oh - the things you overhear.

Luckily, with good enough food and your own good company you can drown most of the awkwardness out.

Sprinkle Of Smoked Paprika
Scene of the crime? Bodega Spanish Tapas and Lounge in Georgetown.

So, it's totally romantic and the food definitely toned down the forced conversation next to us. The seared octopus was excellent but the braised short rib-stuffed piquillo pepper was a little salty for our taste even while downing some sangria.

Hopefully the next visit will be more successful than that potential relationship!
