Finally got out in Maryland – Ceviche

I flew in to Richmand, VA this morning and visited 2 of my jobsites. I talked on the phone so much between installers, a factory, Marilyn and an aunt that my phone was on the “If you make one more phone call I am going to die” mode. Had to quit talking in last half of the extra hour I spent in the rental car due to an accident. 1 hour to go 10 miles. Great fun.

Ed and Lola (the German Pinscher) are happy to see me. We decided to go out into Downtown Silver Spring for dinner. A reader recommended Ceviche and I had seen it in The Washingtonian too. I have to say it was very good.

Ceviche is in the outdoor shopping and restaurant area in Silver Spring near the Discovery building. We got there right before the happy hour specials ended. These include half price tapas and cocktails. Sold! We tried the sauteed shrimp, the tuna sashimi with a sauce, the corn fritters stuffed with gruyere, and the calamari. All were very good. I had a blood orange margarita and Ed had a caipirinha. My choice was the better of the two.

There are quite a few restaurants in this center. We definitely want to go back to Ceviche and try a few of the others. We did buy a couple of cupcakes from the bakery, but I have not eaten them yet.

I have more to say, but I am so tired from this week and I have loads of work to do tomorrow. But that means I will be online all day and can read all the blogs that I haven’t been able to this week. Blogs are like crack (not that I would know what crack is like.) Once I started reading I could not stop.
