DC Feature: The Odyssey Brunch Cruise

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Greetings friends :)

After a super fun, extended weekend with our visitors we are back to reality over here. BOOO. The good news is Hadley is feeling much better. We had to make a trip to the urgent care on Friday night when her temperature kept going up and she ended up having another ear infection. Thank heaven for amoxicillin, am I right?! She was back to her chipper self one day later.

We went out for lunch at the Blue Jacket in Navy Yard and watched Tech lose. Another BOOOO. The place was really cool though... they brew their own beer and you can see all of it in their exposed, factory-type building. Picture lots of steel barrels, two-story plus tall ceilings and window filled walls. Their food was delish too.. I recommend the black bean burger. Mmmmm pickled jalepenos, NOM.

On Sunday we boarded the Odyssey brunch cruise for a little double date action on the Potomac and Anacostia rivers.

It was so much fun! I've lived in the DC area my entire life but have never seen the city from this perspective. We lucked out with some beautiful weather and a really sweet server who kept the mimosas and bloody marys coming.

The food was really delicious. It was an elegant buffet set up with breakfast and lunch items, as well as a dessert station that was truly sinful. I had a little bit of everything and went back for another plate........ *help*

There was a band covering some classic songs and playing DJ. People really hit the dance floor when they busted out the cupid shuffle. I haven't heard that tune since my college days.

We we're supposed to cruise north up the Potomac towards Georgetown but since the water level was too high from rain the day before we could only go so far north before we had to turn back and head south towards the Anacostia river. It was a little bit of a bummer because we wanted our visitors to see all the memorials but there were still some great sights for them!


If you're looking for a great date idea or something to do with any out-of-towners, this is it! They offer fancier dinner cruises as well as specialty events like full moon cruises. It's a truly unique way to see the beautiful city of Washington, DC.

Happy sailing, captain!
