Washington, D.C.

Washington D.C. is filled with little hidden treasures once you look past the national landmarks and monuments set up in the city center. KY and I decided to go on a quick weekend getaway to explore, eat and soak up some culture.

Excerpt from my journal (which, yes, I do still keep as a 22 year old...):

Washington DC with Pawn was SUPERFUN!
We roadtripped...(KY drove. I slept!)
The first night we stayed at the Marriott in Virginia. Ate the most delicious pizza I've ever had and had a mini-party by ourselves.

The next day...we went to ALL OF THE SMITHSONIANS, relived our childhooods, sat on the National Mall and ate froyo and $18 halal (and I didn't even get the right order). We took pictures, hung out with butterflies and walked til our legs were going to fall off. We had dinner at Old Ebbitt Grill. It was awesome.

On Sunday, we went to Georgetown to have brunch at Kafe Leopold. It was chilly and we sat outside. Food was good though! The outdoor heat lamp wasn't working and a neighboring patron smelled gas and helped us.

After, we drove to Old Alexandria, walked along the piers and we tried to go to Torpedo Factory Art Center, but it was closed. :( We went to eat at Daniel O' Connells for lunch and sat on the roof terrace then we had old fashioned ice cream. 

There was a lot of traffic on the way back to NYC so we stopped in Baltimore to have dinner. We ate at LP steamers. Good old fashioned DIY crabs.

And to wrap it all up...a video review of our trip!

until next time,
