What do you do when the guys want to shoot some photos of their latest looks? You suggest meeting for Happy Hour. So we decided to meet for happy hour at Ocean Prime. I’m all about taking photos of my looks but add in some bites and cocktails and I’m totally on board.
First came the cocktails, one of our goals for going to Happy Hour at Ocean Prime was to try the new Watermelon Elyx cocktail. I was a little leery about it at first because I’m not a fan of overly sweet drinks. However this drink was not too sweet and packed a nice little kick. Of course we couldn’t just drink on an empty stomach (we’re well dressed gentlemen afterall!) so we tried out some of the menu items.
We arrived a little early so we could still get some lunch items so we opted for the Ahi Tuna Tartare which featured avocado, ginger ponzu and sesame seeds. Next we tried the lamb lollipops along with the sweet and spicy shrimp. Both were good size portions and the happy hour pricing was well worth trip alone. Get there at the right time at this can easily be a dinner at a for a very reasonable price!
Since I knew I was meeting the guys, I had to make sure my look was on point. While they opted for blues I had to break up the group in my gray suit. At least my shirt and tie stuck with their blue theme. Awhile back I picked up a couple of extreme spread collars from Trashness, a men’s clothing company out of the Netherlands. I love pairing them with suits with a narrower lapel. Plus with the wider spread, I could make the knot of my tie a little bigger.
If you’re downtown consider stopping in for Happy Hour at Ocean Prime. It’s located right downtown in the Colorado Building at 13 and G Streets northwest. We were having such a good time that we almost forgot our original goal to shoot our looks. But with good friends, food and drinks sometimes that just happens! Happy hour is offered in the lounge, Monday-Friday, 4:30-6:30. On Fridays, guests can also enjoy $1 oysters throughout happy hour. LINK
