Love is in the air. Or maybe it’s just lots of chocolate and champagne that’s clouding my vision. Either way, I’m OK with it.
Seemingly answering my prayers, today begins the Week For Chocolate. Over a dozen Georgetown merchants are offering free chocolatey drinks, dessert, and food to badge-holders. Hop around all week and get your fill of cocoa treats from Sprinkles Cupcake, Godiva, Serendipity, Iceberry, and more. The sweetest part is, a portion of every badge sold benefits Leadership Greater Washington. See the full list of merchants here. Get your badge here.
