Chasin Tails before the storm

Nothing like 100+F weather to close out the work week. With blazing hot and humid weather, we headed out of work right at quitting time. After arriving home to a hot apartment, we changed into more weather-appropriate clothing and headed over to East Falls Church to our new favorite crawfish joint. With a full dining room, we ended up  scoring two seats at the bar.
Started off with a dozen oysters.
I'm not sure what type these are, but they're nice and meaty with a pleasant briny flavor. Always a great way to start off a meal here.
The sausage is so flavorful and good, you need to order an extra side to share.
I ordered a pound of crawfish in hot Cajun sauce, and the husband went with two pounds in N'awlins hot Cajun. The bartenders were super nice and attentive without being obtrusive. I think we found the winning combo for fantastic food and service, grab a seat at the bar. Best part, we had unobstructed views of the Olympic trials and Nationals game. 
We had a great dinner at a new favorite restaurant, and managed to make it back to Old Town before the crazy, intense thunderstorms rolled through the region, downing trees, exploding transformers and knocking out power to thousands. We were fortunate to not lose power, but our thoughts go out to everyone who has. Hopefully power is restored to everyone in less time than currently predicted, especially with the 100 degree heat blanketing the DC region.
