HUSH, HUSH: DC’S BEST SPEAKEASIES

blackSo, you’re faced with another weekend in DC. What to do, what to do…

It’s no secret that DC has a world-class, foodie-approved list of things that you could fill a Friday night with. It’s also no secret that the best of that list involves alcoholic beverages. But sometimes, you want a little something different. Sometimes you don’t want to drop in at the neighborhood watering hole that is generous enough to offer PBR and a shot of house vodka for $5.00. Sometimes Tinder seems both mentally exhausting and indicative of having one finger that is just way more overworked than the others. Sometimes you want to swipe left on what you know and try something a little different. Enter DC’s speakeasy scene. HUSH, HUSH: DC’S BEST SPEAKEASIES

WHICH DC INSTAGRAMMERS DESERVE YOUR DOUBLE TAPS

Instagram is a constant reminder that I could, in fact, be cooler. Maybe if I just eat enough scrumptious looking brunches…

When Instagram isn’t taunting me with the fact that I’m not having a grand, far-flung adventure on a random Tuesday afternoon, or making me second guess my belief that yeah, leggings are pants, while simultaneously confirming that the amount of stretch clothing items have isn’t equal to their fashion credence, then it can actually be a wonderful thing. In fact, I would go so far as to say that it’s one of the best ways to get connected to the city and discover new things you want to explore, hidden gems you want to peruse, and things you want to consume.

LAST MINUTE SHOPPING: GIFTS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ANY CITY SLICKER

Ah, here we are again! The holiday season. No matter how many cookies I cram in during training season, it seems that the holidays still come far before I am ready. Usually, I’m just minding my business, trying to sing to Justin Bieber loud enough so that it doubles as therapy but discreetly enough that I don’t draw unwanted attention and then BAM, out of nowhere Jose Feliciano wants to wish me a merry Christmas from the bottom of his heart. And he does so way more times than I personally would deem necessary. LAST MINUTE SHOPPING: GIFTS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ANY CITY SLICKER
