Favorite things: DC Version

I spent an awesome 4 days in DC recently and here are a few of the spots we went to and that I highly recommend!
Monument area:

Old Ebbitt Grill– by the White House/ memorial areas- good for lunch or dinner. Convenient when you’ve been walking around and want to sit down to eat.

Foggy Bottom area:
Founding Farmers– super cute, very popular. Went for brunch and the food was GREAT! Everything is local food sources. They’re open all day for lunch and dinner too. Seemed like a pretty good hot spot right now in DC for food.
Circa They have a Foggy Bottom location and Dupont Circle location. I’ve only been to the DuPont Circle Location. Really great food and just a really cool spot- great music, turns a little lounge-ish after dinner. Very cool. There’s a foggy bottom location and a DuPont location
Georgetown area:
Martins tavern in Georgetown– where JFK proposed to Jackie- small restaurant, food is a bit pricy but cute if you go to that area and want to see a historic spot!
El Centro– Mexican restaurant, but also a bar- we went here after for a drink after we ate at martins tavern because it was a block and a half away. Cute spot!
Ri ra– Fun Irish pub! Had a good mix of people out and about, and it’s just around the corner from El Centro
Logan circle area:
Commissary – DELICIOUS dinner spot on p street! Fun atmosphere and great service!
Barcelona– Super fun bar with a great layout! I really liked this spot! We stopped in for a drink and it was packed!
Also:
Zaytinya – is like the DC hot spot restaurant according to Open Table- I haven’t been but everyone in DC says it’s the best and it’s the spot to eat. I can’t wait to go back and try it sometime!

Love the atmosphere in DC and can’t wait to go back and try some new spots!

Washington, DC

I spent an amazing weekend in Washington, DC running the ROCK n ROLL Half Marathon!

Running 13.1 miles was something I had never done before- and I’m not sure if I’ll do it again- but it was such a great feeling of accomplishment!
