Happy New Year! While I definitely experienced next-level Sunday-scaries yesterday, it’s great to be back in the District, in my own bed, and ready to tackle another awesome year with a jam-packed schedule, starting this week. Cheers to 2016!
Kick-off the New Year with some healthy eats, like our quinoa spinach cakes. They’re great for a post-workout meal, can be topped with an egg, and are transportable for a healthy lunch at your desk. Find the recipe, here.
Head to Mike Isabella’s G on 14th Street, for an all-star Top Chef dinner from Season 12 and Season 13 winners. The collaborative six-course feast will come complete with beverage pairings, for $206 a head. Find tickets and more information, here.
Ease back into your workout routine with Grip the Mat’s Vinyassa to Vino at Mt Vernon Square’s newest coffee spot, A Baked Joint. Start with a feel-good yoga session and end with signature dishes like the Flat White Pizza, OMG bars, and of course, vino. More information and tickets, here.
We’re looking forward to spending a casual date night at the new Atlantic Plumbing Theatre in Shaw, complete with a cozy bar, leather chairs and a full kitchen. Be sure to arrive early, so you can stock up on vino and popcorn for the movie. Now showing: The Big Short, Carol, and Spotlight. 807 V St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Local beer lovers should head to Port City Brewery for the launch of Tidings Ale. This winter seasonal is a strong and spicy Belgian style blond ale brewed with local Maryland wildflower honey and Virginia wheat. Book a 1 p.m. tour at the Alexandria, Virginia, brewery, but show up at noon to chow down on DC slices and Rocklands BBQ from local food trucks. Find more information, here.
