I was reading the Washington Post online Friday night when the special section on the Washington Redskins training camp caught my eye. It mentioned the training camp was in Richmond, VA and after visiting the Redskin's website, I found out the training camp was open to the public on Saturday afternoon. Now we like football in this house. We're Redskins fans, too. Couldn't pass this up.
Of course, we need to eat when visiting the Redskins training camp and honestly hot dogs wasn't going to do it. For me anyway. Richmond has a rich food scene going on so it was hard to pick a place to eat. Using my favorite food apps, Foodspotting and OpenTable, we picked a place, Xtra's Cafe based on the reviews, menu, location near the training camp, mid-range dinner prices, and kids menu. I booked using OpenTable which makes reserving a table so easy.
After enjoying the Redskins training camp, we headed over to the Carytown neighborhood of Richmond. It is a pretty hip and trendy section. It had two cupcake shops and two yogurt places so that says it all. And I'm sure the PBL was served like water. Anyhow I regress.
We climbed the stairs to Xtra's Cafe hot, thirsty, and hungry. We walked into a place with very chic decor, but yet it still was very comfortable. They had a nice balcony which would be good in cooler temps; we chose to stay in the air conditioning. The staff was very attentive and helpful.
After dinner we strolled through Carytown. We'll be back.
And "Hail Yeah!"
