Dina’s Day..and D’Acqua

I did warn you that everyone I knew was having a birthday… My roommate and very close friend, Dina Davalle, celebrated another year of gracing the planet with her presence last Wednesday.

Where to have the birthday bash?? Just in time, Victoria Michael, no relation (although I sometimes do tell people that she is my big sister!), saved the day! She has just signed on to market the new D’Acqua restaurant at 8th and Pennsylvania NW. So the crew headed over to “the old Signatures” to meet Chef Enzo Febbraro (formerly Chef at Filomena in Georgetown). We stuffed ourselves with Italian seafood fare while Dina held court over the entire restaurant – Happy Birthday!

Interestingly, on the same night, D’Acqua was hosting a HurryDate event. While it did seem wildly popular, none of us tried it.. this time!
