Where to eat near Patriot Center - directionally challenged

One of our favorite places is "Auld Shebeen" an Irish pub and restaurant. It is located on 123 in old town Fairfax. 5 minutes from GMU.

Where can I find a bridal shower cake in Northern VA area?

I HIGHLY recommend "Occasionally Cake" in Alexandria. Their cakes are amazing! Beautiful to look at and wonderful to eat. They will custom make your cake to your specifications. You cannot go wrong here.

Boiled Peanuts

Does anyone know of a restaurant in DC or NoVa that serves boiled peanuts? I've been craving them lately but can't find them around here. Thank you?

oohs & aahs?

I just found this post on a google search. My son had seen "Oohhs and Aahhs" on an episode of "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" with Guy Fierri on the Food Network. As we were visiting a museum over the holidays in DC, we decided we just had to try this place. It certainly is a dive, which qualified it for Fierri's program, but I was baffled by what he found so appealing in the food. I had the crabcakes with potato salad and green beans. The crab cakes were dry and flavorless, the potato salad mushy and bland and the green beans tasted like they came right out of a can. My son had buffalo wings, which were greasy. My daughters had the fried chicken, which was dry. The only thing I found worth eating was the mac and cheese, which was very good. I don't think I will ever eat there again.
