Last week I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of STK DC. Since the event was being put on by the TAA PR girls, I knew that it would be a night to remember and it was!! The line on the red carpet started at 7pm and kept going most of the night. It was definitely a packed house of who’s who in DC.
From the outside the new venue looked beautiful. Once inside we were greeted by the STK ladies helping to host the evening and hand out adorable T shirts and kisses! They also were handing out props for the photo booth!!
Once inside we worked our way to the bar before the crowd could fully form and got to try both of the cocktails for the night and they were DELICIOUS!!!
My favorite was the Green Intensity which was a well named deliciously spicy mixture of Belvedere, Lime and Jalapenos… YUM!! I know my way around a bar and am rarely impressed but these simple mixtures were the perfect addition to the night. I will be back for you Green Intensity!!
While making the rounds with my girl Angelica of Clarendon Moms, we ran into Ms. Demetria Lucas of A Belle In Brooklyn and snapped a picture together. She was nice albeit a bit reserved but I would be too if strangers just came up to me.
Now about the meat and potatoes of the event… the FOOD. The hor d’oeuvres for the night were oyster shooters, shrimp, Tuna tar tar (pictured above), potatoes, corn pudding and burger sliders. The VIP of the VIP were given one T Bone per table but that was the only steak I saw all night. While most the the items I tried were tasty, I was a little surprised by the items chosen but I look forward to getting the chance to go back and try some steak!!
The DJ did an excellent job of keeping the party going with some excellent tunes! I only wish there had been more room for dancing in the crowd. Overall it was a really great night out with the ladies and I met some great new people!
Also who can resist a good drum beat!!
