Toki Underground

So I’ll keep it all the way real with  you guys at this point. I invite myself to stuff. And I kinda won’t feel bad unless you of course tell me, no.  Like if you said you want to go to WTF (Woodward Takeout Food) – I’d say “Oh I’m going *side eye emoji eyeballs* I mean, you guys know I’m all for going to places by myself I’m the Guru Masterdater BUT some things are more fun with company. And such was the case for my Toki Underground experience.   I was at happy hour with some coworkers last week when one of my coworkers mentioned that they planned to go to Toki.

Walked a little bit, passed it – sike just kidding.”  It was right in front of our faces [only in uber small, 7 pitch Times New Roman font]. Exactly. Small. Things that kinda caught me off guard initially was the extra narrow, slim tables for seating and the curtain that met you at the entrance ( but I’m guessing that …

Summer + Gelato 

“When I reminisce over you, my God.” Summer I miss you.  Let’s see, what do I want to talk about in this post?! Gelato is pretty self explanatory and needs no introduction. It’s just the.best.ever. My friend Nicole introduced me to gelato a few years ago while she was visiting DC, and I’ve been hooked ever since!  I thought about naming this post something like “the battle of the gelatos” but that sounded corny in my head. So I opted against that.
