Observations, pictures, and sketches highlight the transition of moving to the nations's Capitol after 30 years of living in the Midwest. A clash in cultures? Maybe not!

Cafe Deluxe Good to the Last Gulp
We haven't been to Tysons for awhile trying to avoid all the the Christmas shopping madness. So we decided to venture out and try our luck today at Cafe Deluxe. This restaurant is the sister to Tortilla Coast just up the street and another Cafe Deluxe near the National Cathedral on Wisconsin Avenue. We always bring our out of town guests here because the service is great, the place is pleasant, and there is something on the menu for everyone. My husband always orders a Virgin Mary for brunch and gets upset when they bring it out filled with ice and little else. One of our dearest friends always tells him to order it without ice. So today, he did. And I ordered a glass of water and coffee. So he could now have more of his drink, and slip in an ice cube or two. He also likes all the stuff that comes with it...celery sticks, little onions, olives and sometimes salt around the rim. We've paid anywhere from $2.50 to $8.50 for any variation of the same thing. Every once in awhile he has V8 juice at home, but it just isn't the same.
