Photo First Take: Mellow Mushroom DC

Junk Food Nation, my friend Pooja, a former classmate of mine, is about to open a brand new pizza restaurant here in Washington DC’s Adams Morgan neighborhood!  A Georgia-originated pizza franchise, Mellow Mushroom features craft beer and great pizza.  Moreover, each Mellow Mushroom has a different design/feel.  This store’s theme was more carnival/circus.

Anyways, DC’s first Mellow Mushroom opens on Monday – tomorrow!  Pooja had a Friends and Family event last night, and I was fortunate enough to attend.  Although I plan on coming back and giving you guys a FULL REVIEW of this pizza spot later on, I wanted to give you a brief sneak peak into DC’s newest pizza haven – before it even opens!

Sorry for some of the weirdly lit shots – it was a madhouse last night and I was just trying to snap as many pics as possible.  I hope you enjoy this little photo journey through the evening!  See you tomorrow for Awkward Mondays!

Beautiful storefront

Bright lights, big city

Coming soon! Like...tomorrow!

The awesomest/scariest light fixture around

Open kitchen

Like a Ford Model T assembly line

24 drafts, 50 bottles = drinks and things

I love cartoons!

The Capri

The House Special

A little slice of heaven

BBQ Chicken

Smoky caramelized onions

Even the napkins were branded! Love it.

Ryan is the fast food guru. His soft dulcet tones will make you want to eat french fries, immediately.

Dubba is an ice cream wizard. He's got two spoons and he's not afraid to use them. Unless it's something spicy.
