This week, we’re welcoming December with open arms. Cozy sweaters, fancy cocktails, and feelings of holiday cheer are swarming the city. Whether you’re looking to warm up or embrace the cold, we’ve found festive things for you to do around town.
This Monday is Mule Day at Sequoia Restaurant. Head over for six different types of Moscow Mules that can be yours for just $8.00. The restaurant is also near the ice rink, so if you’re not too tipsy, wobble into some skates and check a classic winter activity off your list. Check their website for other specials happening this week. 300 K St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
D.C. loves a good patio. Glen’s Garden Market has devised a way to make sure all that outdoor seating doesn’t go unused this winter. Glen’s Cocoa Lodge in Dupont and Shaw are winter getaways. Cozy up by the fire with hot chocolate, $4.00 local craft beers, wines by the glass, and delicious food. The Cocoa Lodges are first come, first served seating, but they do offer group reservations. We love Glen’s for brunch, so we know you’ll love it for an afternoon pick-me-up. 1924 8th St. N.W., Washington, D.C.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…to give back!

You know the holidays are near when the Christmas lights magically appear along the city streets, weird cravings for hot chocolate kick in, and romantic winter activities are on your radar.

H Street has a lot of cool spots you can’t find anywhere else in the District. Fare Well is one of those places. An interesting vegan diner has hit the brunch scene and you won’t be disappointed by the menu. Although the spot is lacking in meat and dairy, it’s not lacking the slightest in flavor. Check out our review, here. 406 H St. N.E., Washington, D.C. 20002.
The weekends are getting more and more chilly and we’re feeling less and less motivated. So, don’t waste time trying to find a brunch spot. Head to the classic Lavagna for an amazing Italian brunch. The hearty dishes are perfectly filling for a winter-Sunday of hibernation. Check out our review, here. 539 8th St S.E., Washington, D.C. 20003.
