2019 East Coast Trip - Day 7

Capital Cresent Trail Bike RideWe started the day with some coffee and oatmeal from Starbucks. The plan for the morning was a bike ride on the Capital Cresent Trail. We spotted the trail when we were wandering around the area last fall.

We rented a couple of Capitol Bikeshare bikes a block from the hotel. From there, we used the bike trails on M Street and then K Street to get to the Capital Cresent Trail. We ended up riding 11 1/4 miles in an hour and 54 minutes.

We dropped the bikes at the Georgetown waterfront. We walked up to the Georgetown Campus and connected with Jack.

After spending some time shopping in the bookstore, the three of us took an Uber from the campus to the Jaco Juice and Taco Bar for lunch. Sharon and Jack discovered the place last summer.

Sharon and I then caught an Uber to Tredici Enoteca Restaurant in the St. Gregory Hotel. We had driven pass the restaurant on M Street repeatedly in the last couple of years and Sharon wanted to check it out. We had a cold adult beverage, talked to the Egyptian bartender and watched Coco Gauff win in the third round at Wimbledon.

Heading back to the hotel, we got cleaned up for dinner. We met Rob and Barb Nooter and Jack for a drink at Bar à Vin. This is the wine bar for the Chez Billy Sud. From there, we walked up the canal one block to Filament Ristorante. We split bruschetta, fried and roasted oysters and a caesar salad. I had Penne Con Salsicce [Penne Pasta tossed with roasted & ground Chef Made Italian Sweet Sausage, sautéed Mushrooms, Onions, Herbs and Chianti Wine in a Abruzzi Country Style hearty Tomato Sauce with sautéed Chef Made Link Sausage Pieces.] Sharon had sea bass, but I did pay attention to what everyone else got. The portions were huge! Even Jack didn't finish his entree!

After dinner, Sharon and I caught an Uber back to the hotel and crashed. We are heading home tomorrow.

It was very nice to have a chance to see Rob and Barb.
