In the Know…DC Beer Tasting!

IMG_1180Wow! Who knew beer tasting in DC could be such a scene?

If you like beer and have not spent a Saturday afternoon tasting some of DC’s finest, you’re missing out!

Not only is the beer excellent, but there are food trucks, live music, and cute dogs available for adoption. Perfect for a fall day!

Some recommendations: Chocolate City Beer (Brookland), DC Brau (Woodridge), and Three Stars Brewing (Takoma/Brightwood).

In the Know … DC Coffee Shops!

IMG_0957When my husband and I first started dating over ten years ago, coffee shop options in DC were slim.

We used to live in Logan Circle and every Saturday we went to our “regular” Au Bon Pain.

It’s really amazing the options today! Check out this great list on District Bean.

Some of our favorites… Sidamo, Qualia, Pound, the Big Bear, and Room 11 (pictured left).

Recently we returned to our old stomping ground in Logan Circle and checked out and really enjoyed The Coffee Bar. How times have changed!
