Out and About…

>>>Friendship Heights is the home of a few of our favorite things…Barneys Coop, Clyde’s Bar and Restaurant, etc. To make sure we spend every dime of our money in this neighborhood, they have now added a Whole Foods Market to the roster. Whole Foods is one of our top ten places to shop for good food. The salad bar has a vast array of options to fit any appetite, they now sell wine and the cheese selections are unmatched in this Friendship Heights neighborhood. On May 18, 2010, the store will open its 8th location in Maryland with a host of reasons why we will need to have a serious talk with ourselves about our food budget. No spending more that has been allotted! The new store will offer, among many other things, a coffee bar with homemade gelato and popsicles that has public Wi-Fi access. On May 21, 2010, the store will introduce the weekly Lobster Dinner @ $18.99 per person. So the summer begins with lobster and popsicles?? Sign me up, please…

>>>The Goethe-Institut is gearing up for its summer series of films, discussions, exhibits and language classes that begin on June 7, 2010. The global German cultural institute’s Washington, D.C. branch has implemented a few cool events to learn about German culture alongside food. The institute will host monthly lunchtime gatherings inviting those interested in hearing and speaking German to bring their lunch and hear from various special guests (*May 11, from 12:15 pm-1:15 pm will feature Dr. Uta Balbier of the German Historical Institute). Good way to learn something new without missing out on your lunchtime bite…Guten Appetit!
