Recently I have been in a blogger's funk and have not been able to muster much inspiration. Perhaps it is because two of the fabulous woman who have guided both my weekdays and weekends, Oprah Winfrey and Liane Hansen, said goodbye last week. Or maybe the constant roar of motorcycles circling my condo for Rolling Thunder drowned out my inner voice. But this weekend, staying in DC brought me back to my jovial blogging self with my local Memorial Day weekend journey that went from haute to hot.
Readers know that my tastes range from fine to frugal. And it is this leap that brings me to my next Memorial Day food experience -- lunch for two for $3.27. Where, you may ask? And it is that question that causes me to blush ever so slightly. This feast was at the suburban weekend nightmare that is the Pentagon City Costco. But what is more American than enjoying an all beef hot dog in the middle of a consumer-driven, fluorescent lit cafeteria? The hot dog was satisfying in a I can't remember when the last time was I ate a hot dog kind of way. The Diet Coke was free flowing. The onion dicing machine crank, well, that was just fun.
So from haute to hot, there are so many ways to take advantage of long summer weekends in DC.
