Happy Holidays, Bitches!
It’s a short week and we couldn’t be happier. We Bitches have already headed home to see our loved ones at various spots across the States. We’re enjoying some much-needed R&R. We’re wishing you and yours a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season.
We’re also thrilled to announce our partnership with a speedy new food app called OrderAhead. What’s a Bitch to do when there’s so many last-minute holidays things needed here and there? Now we’re using OrderAhead to get our brunches, dinners and shopping-on-the-go snacks delivered on the fly. Plus the app is partnering with some of the very best Washington restaurants.
