Food.Fun.Stuff: So Much to Do…

[ 0 ] January 23, 2009 |

To Do List:

>D.C. Restaurant Week– For JKGF D.C. Restaurant Week should be a holiday…food at some of the most expensive spots in the city for cheap! You know the drill: 3 course lunches for $20.09 and 3 course dinners for $35.09 per person. This is the perfect time to do dinner with friends, someone you’ve wanted to take on a date but didn’t want to spend a gazillion dollars or just to try a spot you would never in a million years try on any other arbitrary night.

Spots that seem to have the best deals:
1789 (Georgetown)
Taberna Del Alabardero (Downtown)
The Willard Room (Downtown)

*Why do these spots have the best deals? Well, let’s see…they all have regular priced menus that are $50 and up! If for nothing else, you should stop in just to say you’ve been to a few of D.C.’s best and on a budget;-)

>Chocolate Lovers Festival– From February 7-8, 2009, Virginia will be making chocolate lovers dreams come true. There will be tastings, sculptures, bake sales and more;-)

>V-day– It’s about that time to start locking in those reservations for Valentine’s Day, well at least to start thinking about where you want to go with that special someone.

A few suggestions for the Love Day:
2941 (Falls Church)
Adour at St. Regis (Downtown)
Corduroy (Downtown)

So you have this weekend to rest from what has been a worldwind of stuff (i.e. the holidays, inauguration…), and then it’s back to food business (*which is always good;-) Rest up and stay warm!
