PSST!!! HAS ANYONE SEEN MORRIS!?

So were kind of upset right about now — borderline in mourning, okay. Being the uber sophisticated restaurant foodie-extraordinares that we are, we were very much looking forward to what was supposed to be this season’s hottest restaurant opening of Chef Spike Mendelsohn’s Morris inside of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. So we’re sure you can imagine our surprise when we coincidentally stumbled upon THIS:

PSST!!! HAS ANYONE SEEN MORRIS!?

THE DC RAMMY AWARDS ARE ON THE WAY…

So…we know you’ve heard of the Grammys. You’ve even heard of the Razzies, but are you hip enough to know about the Rammys?

No?

Okay…well, that’s alright…honestly you probably fall in line with right around 99.995% of the rest of the population.

So — if right about now you’re feeling kind of like you fail at DC pride, knowledge and overall life in general — it’s okay — you’re forgiven.

See what you have to understand is that it’s no secret that the rest of the country is kind of taking notice of our little gem of a district. We kind of had the arrival of the DC Michelin Guide and “… in case you missed it, Bon Appétit Magazine dubbed DC ‘The Restaurant City of the Year,'”. Yeah — we’re freaking awesome. THE DC RAMMY AWARDS ARE ON THE WAY…

Okay — we know what you’re thinking — ANOTHER biergarten!? There’s only maybe perhaps literally just about 1,260,372 per square block in DC and it’s kind of sort of getting yawn.

Now, don’t get us wrong–we love a good biergarten and have definitely enjoyed our fair share of Belgian and German delights — but yes, we can absolutely see how this can be less-than-riveting news to our fellow Washingtonians. However, this one is kinda sort of doing it a bit different and we’re loving the vibes. NOT YOUR AVERAGE BIERGARTEN — WELL, OKAY…MAYBE IT IS..BUT NOT REALLY!

FINALLY GET IT RIGHT ONCE FOR MOTHER’S DAY — OR ELSE…

Make Mom a Macaron! — or just eat them

Saturday, May 13, 2017 from 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
Olivia Macaron
3222 M Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20007
Uhm whoa. First off – I would be there at 11:45AM SHARP even if I didn’t have a mother to take. Literally – for those of you who have distant relatives you may or may not want to just grab the nearest sweet old lady at the supermarket and get your macaron on like King Kong…just sayin…just be sure to return her…and don’t forget to coach her on Q&A to make sure she doesn’t crack under pressure and improvisation before going in…I’ve learned this the hard way…Nothing ruins a posh macaron chow down like a panicked and confused elderly lady… FINALLY GET IT RIGHT ONCE FOR MOTHER’S DAY — OR ELSE…
