Don't mention the eyeshadow

I had lunch today at the bar at Murphy's in Virginia-Highland. The bartender gave me the award for asking "the weirdest question anyone has ever asked me in my life." It seemed simple enough to me. Noticing her intense makeup, I asked her how long she had been wearing pink eye shadow. She got very agitated, and my friend had to explain to her that I wasn't insulting her.

Anyway, lunch was good. I had a burger with smoked bacon and Swiss cheese, and a side of too-salty avocado soup. My friend had a grilled salmon sandwich. We resisted the perfect strawberry shortcake.

Murphy's is especially pleasant on a mild day like today. I saw the owners of two popular restaurants dining on the patio together. If a Portuguese barbecue restaurant opens, don't say I didn't tip you off first. You'll have to figure out who they are yourself.
