Instead of eating the standard conference lunch (again), Marcus (my colleague) and I skipped off to Ben’s Chili Bowl for a world-class DC experience. If you aren’t familiar with Ben’s, it is has been in business for over 50 years and is a favorite of the Obamas and Bill Cosby. They serve hotdogs, hamburgers, fries, you name it — although their specialty is the “Half Smoke.” Today, Marcus and I each had a Half Smoke and shared an order of Chili Cheese Fries.
We figure we will burn it off on our 10 mile long run tomorrow. Well…almost! 😉 Either way, it was DELICIOUS! If you are in DC, you must make time to go up to this place. It’s amazing! Just go early…otherwise you will have to wait in a line that runs out the door and down the street!
