I had been in DC for less than twenty-four hours and I felt like I had seen so much already. There was the local liquor store made out of bullet proof glass that was designed in the shape of a maze of short aisles designed to stop you from running out, the 8 foot fence my uncle-in-law had around his house decorated with bullet holes, and the house alarm I accidentally set off which pretty much destroyed my hearing for life. How could a trip into the heart of DC top that? Would monuments and shopping outweigh what I had already experienced? Good questions.
It was day two of my three day DC road trip. Day one involved an awesome burger joint in Baltimore, a stop at the Aquarium and a quick jog into Virginia to pick up our Cousin and her Husband – a man who could easily be mistaken as the white Kanye West – at the airport. From there it was back to Washington DC for dinner and drinks. The next day, we slowly got our act together and got moving. The plan was be in the heart of DC by noon, and find a place to have beers and burgers. That was enough to get my ass in gear.
No plan, no time table, just the four of us and the navigation skills of a blood hound or Locke from Lost thanks to Chris (The white Kanye). We drove in, parked, and took a walk. A few block away from the Verizon Center we found RFD, a bar that advertised it’s massive selection of beer (best in Washington DC) and a daily burger. The place looked good and we were ready to drink.
Bang for your Buck
The service was adequate, the food was good and the place was clean. It was a comfortable place to site and have lunch. I don't think there is any reason to say you have to get there but if you're in the area it's absolutely a place worth trying.
