DBGB – City Center

Where did you go? DBGB – City Center Breakfast? Brunch? Lunch? Happy Hour? Dinner? Happy hour.   My friend and I were on our way to a play and were in the mood for apps that could pass for light dinner. Do I have to dress up? Nope.  It’s pretty casual. Cuisine? French bistro fare What…

Pizza at Faccia Luna

The bf and I stumbled onto Faccia Luna while looking for baking supplies next door at Williams Sonoma. I had just received a gift card, and was anxious to use it.  When my bf saw Faccia Luna, his face lit up, and mentioned that he was feeling a bit peckish, even though had we snacked…

Hogo | DC

The Shaw neighborhood in DC is one of my new favorite places to hang out and Hogo is one of my favorite bars.  It’s a cute, tiny bar with rum-based tiki-type drinks.  They don’t have a website, just a Facebook page that lists drink specials and food menus.  My friend and I tried something called…
