Baltimore Buzz: Memorial Day Crab Pot Lawn Party at the Mandarin Oriental

Sometimes a girl's just gotta live it up, and this week, Tex was feeling fancy. Our good friends at UrbanDaddy led me to this event that sounded awesome from all angles: Crabs on the Lawn of the Mandarin Oriental.

For those unaware, the MO is easily the best of the best when it comes to hotels in the area, and the DC location is beautifully situated to overlook the waterfront in DC's southwest. Crabs, naturally, will bring any Baltimorean out of the house, and of course Tex loves anyplace that offers brilliant table service and free champagne. So why would I ever say no?

The Crab Pot was also the kick-off in a series of MO-based restaurant Sou'Wester summer lawn parties (heed ye early - reservations fill up fast), and if this is what the rest of the summer will be like, then count me in.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the fact that the very friendly blogger/photographers from Revamp were there, and got even better pictures than I did.


Next Up: Tex & Coda hope to see you all at the Ten Oaks Polo Match - an annual benefit on June 12, 2010 for Catholic Charities. Come on out, sip secret mimosas, and watch the ponies play!
