FALLING FOR AUTUMN IN DC: WHERE TO GO, WHAT TO DO

Although we have had a couple of 80-degree days thrown into October’s midst, and we’re still at the point that if you cozy up into a sweater in the morning you regret your very heated existence by afternoon, fall is in full swing. Pumpkin Spice Lattes are the currency of the season, Ugg sightings are on the rise, and if you haven’t gotten surprisingly tipsy from a spiked apple cider yet, it’s probably only a matter of time. For many, Fall is a favorite season – an enjoyable in-between that celebrates the goodbye of Summer’s sweltering, yet still lets you enjoy life before Winter creeps in, you eat too many holiday cookies, and then you can’t even muster the energy to care about things beyond the comforting expanse of your couch.

LINCOLN’S COTTAGE SHOWS HOW THE PRESIDENT SPENT SUMMERS

Many of us have been to the Lincoln Memorial, but did you know Lincoln had a summer home here in D.C. too?

It’s true. This 175-year-old building just off North Capitol Street next to the Soldier’s Home was lovingly restored and opened to the public in 2008. The 10,000-square-foot, 34-room home is more spacious than one might expect in a “cottage.” But the double front doors with rounded tops that meet to form a point at the top and the gingerbread trim make you think fairies and gnomes might have once lived here.

WHAT DOES BREITBART AND YOUR FAVORITE LOCAL COFFEE SHOP HAVE IN COMMON?

So apparently the “The Most Hated Man on the Internet” has quite the bone to pick with a beloved little Dupont Circle coffee shop named Emissary DC.

To give you a little background on the space, Emissary burst onto the DC restaurant scene in a pretty alluring fashion. A picturesque little cozy spot with exposed brick gives it a nice warm feeling.

It has quite the alluring list filled with a fine coffee bar and a beverage series focusing on DC’s best spirits, as well as a seasonal kitchen menu.

Beer lovers also have a lot to choose from with a full assortment of canned as well as bottled varieties from Manor Hill available right from around 11:00 AM. WHAT DOES BREITBART AND YOUR FAVORITE LOCAL COFFEE SHOP HAVE IN COMMON?

¡LATIN FIESTA 2017 MUY DIVERTIDA!

D.C. may be known as the city where everyone works 24/7, more devoted to their Blackberrys than their significant others, sleeping with them every night without fail. But we know how to have fun here too — you just have to pay attention to find out where the party is. And because this is such a cosmopolitan city that so many ethnic groups call home, we’re not stuck eating the same kind of food at every festival. ¡LATIN FIESTA 2017 MUY DIVERTIDA!
