While it is hard believe after we all watched on in horror as flurries of white fell gracefully from the sky this past week, the calendar doesn’t lie: spring is here. Soon, Old Man Winter will give up on terrorizing us with blustery winds and cold fronts, and warm weather will swoop in to save our souls. Or at least, that’s the kind of hope I’ve been clinging to as I cocoon under every blanket I own night after night. Spring brings more than sunshine, blooms, open-toed shoes, and wheezing, though. It also brings one of the cities best food options out of hibernation. Yes, that’s right, with warmer weather, the cities’ wheels start turning, delicious smells start wafting through 70-degree air, and food trucks are back in season. … DC FOOD TRUCKS WORTH TRACKING DOWN
Baseball season is back in the District. The Washington Nationals kicked off their 2018 quest for the World Series last week and will return home to Nationals Park this Thursday, April 5. For many fans, the best part of the baseball game is the food. Eating at the ballpark is an experience all its own (there’s just something about a hot dog in summer), but it can also be pricey and less creative than other nearby options. … CHECK OUT THESE 4 NEW EATS NEAR NATIONALS PARK

There is never a bad time of the year for beer sipping. That’s what I love most about beer –– it’s versatile. Looking to warm up after a chilly day running around the streets of DC? Duck into a local joint and get yourself a porter, sure to warm you from the inside out. Sweating bullets after showing out-of-town guests around town in the heat of the summer? Slide into one of the area’s beer slingin’ bars and get a refreshing IPA. But while I love beer year-round, I must admit, we’re coming up on prime beer drinking season: Spring. When the weather finally gives way, lets us all out of homes, and hovers nicely around 75 degrees if only for a moment so we can sip a brewski on a patio or in the middle of a beer garden. It’s a magical time for those who can appreciate a great pour. Luckily for the beer affectionados that call the District home, there are plenty of local brews to be had in these parts. … FINDING HOPPINESS: DC’S BEST BREWERIES

But Danni… we are literally being pummeled with apocalyptic winds that can only be accurately equated with having the full Wrath of Zeus reign down upon the DMV…
Well, to that I say BAH-HUMBUG! You worked your butts off this week and you better get that butts out and about so you can let loose and have a little fun…gale force winds or not!
Trust me, I fully understand that the struggle to avoid being the neighborhood cat lady or cat man (is that even a thing?) is #real. But for the love of all that is holy, put down that kale and white bean soup recipe you’ve just been dying to perfect this weekend and get out and let your hair down.
You’re welcome. I’m thinking of becoming a life coach…
