Girls’ Night: Equinox and the Kennedy Center

Today I want to share a fun evening that I had in the city. Jen and I had a girls’ night and we had dinner then went to a show. We started the evening at Equinox, where we had a special “Pre-theater” three course meal. For $12 we added a wine pairing as well.

Equinox started our meal off by serving us grilled figs with hazelnuts and a glaze.

Our first glass of wine was a nice, refreshing white wine.

Next, Jen and I both got the Oven Roasted Tomatilla Soup. The soup had sweet summer corn and fresh cilantro, and it was served with Black Bean Fritters.

Next, Jen and I went to the Kennedy Center to see The Book of Mormon. This was my first time at the Kennedy Center and it was great!

During intermission, Jen and I went up to the terrace and had a great view of the Rosslyn skyline as the sun was setting.

Have you seen The Book of Mormon? It was a very entertaining show! I haven’t seen a musical in a while and now that I’ve been to the Kennedy Center, I’ll definitely have to return to see another show here.
