Returning to the District

A couple of weeks ago the husband and I finally made it back to Washington since we moved last year. It was the first time returning to D.C. as “tourists” even if it didn’t feel that way. The husband was officially graduating from Georgetown University.

It was a quick weekend trying to cram as much into three days as possible. I ventured back to my old stomping grounds in Tenleytown grabbing lunch and dinner at Guapo’s and Masala Art.


We also ate at Founding Farmers — still one of my favorites. (The housemade ginger soda is great for a hangover, btw)

We watching a fashion show and saw Jessica Alba while eating dinner at Redwood in Bethesda Row. (so very strange)

We ate amazing cake from Baked and Wired.

I met my best girlfriends for margarita happy hour in Cleveland Park.


I went out for drinks at Russia House (another check-off on the foodie bucket list) for girl talk.

We also trekked around the city on a D.C. brewery tour. We made stops at 3 Stars Brewing, DC Brau and Port City. It was a long, exhausting day but fun to spend time with some of our favorite people while drinking good beer.

Oh right and the husband walked across a kind of important stage.

There wasn’t a lot of site-seeing (we only briefly saw the Washington Monument), but it’s the best way to see Washington, D.C. — with close friends and family.

When can I go back?
