Excitements and Disappointments

This weekend was a mix of excitements and disappointments. The first excitement occurred on Friday night when we went to Fogo de Chao for dinner. I have never been around so many different cuts of meat at once. I think I set a new record for a former vegetarian eating meat on Friday. I even ate rare meat, which I have never done before, and it was really yummy. The meal was pricey, but worth every penny.

Then, of course, came the disappointment of the year. The Ravens lost to the Colts even though they didn't let he-who-will-not-be-named score a touchdown! The offense was completely asleep for most of the game. I could feel my heart breaking with each passing quarter. Worse is that the AFC Championship game will be the Colts and the Patriots. Two teams I'm incredibly sick and tired of hearing about, or seeing in the Superbowl. Sure, Tom Brady is cute, but lose already!

Lastly, I went to see Inland Empire last night, and got to see David Lynch in person. While I didn't get to ask him about the significance of food in Twin Peaks, it was an awesome experience. He has such a cool voice! The movie itself was pure David Lynch. I'm going to need some time to digest it and read about it a little more. But, I recommend going to see it. It's currently playing at the AFI Silver Theater in Silver Spring.

I LOVE Fogo! 2 blocks from my office + lunch = overstuffed Courtney

Unlimited meat on swords is a concept more restaurants should follow.
