The fine folks at Datelab set us up at La Perla, a wonderful little Italian place nestled between the west end of DC and Georgetown, moments away from the Kennedy Center. I got to the place a few moments before my date Anne, and was also fortunate to find a parking space right of Pennsylvania Avenue.
I'm not allowed to give away the details of the date, but I'll simply say we had a nice time.
The meal, however, was bloody awesome. She had a seafood medley of scallops, mussels, shrimp, mussels served over a bed of linguine with more mussels. Anne likes mussels, so that worked out for her. I had a meat and cheese tortellini in a cream sauce with marscapone cheese.
Yeah, the same stuff used in tiramisu. The yummy stuff.
I just about died and went to heaven. As my former boss at Broadstreet Communications, Chris Preston, said - "you always seem to know how to order the best thing on the menu."
This stuff was as close to pasta perfection as I've ever had. Marscapone, you've been upgraded from dessert to entree'!
DCFud will get a much-needed update from me, both on my eating habits, my diet and my Datelab.
All in all, this was a good day. Something to cherish.
