Weekend Wrap-up

We opened our weekend on Friday afternoon with a trip to the Taste of Reston event, which was merely an excuse to walk up and down a street eating paella, crabcakes, ribs, shortcake, gelato, and sliders, while consuming overpriced Dominion Ale. We didn't hear much from the various local bands, as they had more technical difficulties than play time, but at least one of the DJ booths seemed intent on playing every single choreographed wedding song known to man.

Rebecca spent Saturday working on one of her summer assignments for school while I did nothing of any remote utility. In the evening, we drove out to Purcellville for delicious subs at the lazily-named "My Deli and Cafe", and then took in a performance of the Polka Dots at Franklin Park, a folksy local group introducing Rebecca's cousin, Abby, on second violin.

On Sunday, we finished up the second season of Treme, and then grilled some steaks for Rebecca's parents, in a hybrid anniversary/birthday celebration. I also researched a few improvements I could make to this site while Rebecca is on her summer road trip including, but not promising, a better post search engine, next and previous buttons on pages with individual posts, and the potential return of Name-That-Tune and Newsday Tuesday. I'm also not quite sure where Museday Tuesday scampered off to, but I haven't found them as fun to do this year.

How was your weekend?
