Union Station is already decked out in holiday wreaths. It’s time to get festive in D.C. Here are the top things to do.
We know, we know. You’re preparing your waistlines for Thanksgiving and the last thing you want to think about is food. Well, for those of you who aren’t counting calories, three notable (or notorious) eateries are freshly open in D.C. this week:
IHOP (that’s right, International House of Pancakes, people) opened last week in Colombia Heights and begins 24-7 hours on Thanksgiving. Do we smell late-night?
Chidogos Hot Dogs opened on U Street, and U Street Girl is excited.
And, best of all, Bayou Bakery opened at 1515 N. Courthouse Road in Arlington. This tribute to New Orleans serves up coffee, beer, ginormous sandwiches, and piping hot beignets. (I’m sure they serve other things, but that’s all we need). Metrocurean has the inside scoop.
It’s Cori Sue’s favorite holiday this Friday… BLACK FRIDAY. So, wherever you are, get shopping!
If you’re in town this weekend, we suggest hitting up the museums around town, since, hopefully, they’re less crowded.
One new exhibit we’re pretty excited about is Irving Contemporary’s Street/Studio 2.0 with work by Shephard Fairy (of Obama poster fame), female woodblock print artist Swoon, and experimental painter David Ellis. 1412 14th St. NW, Washington, D.C.
