My Weekend in D.C.
I frequently have house guests and September is no exception. So I've pretty much developed an agenda for my house guests for Thursday - Sunday that keeps them busy, fed and entertained. I suggest everyone come up with a sample agenda for house guests. It avoids you needing to plan at the last minute and opentable.com makes my reservations so easy. So here are some ideas to keep your guests happy!
7 p.m. Oya for dinner. They will love the scene and it's in Chinatown so you can go for a stroll aftewards or a drink at the bar at Zaytinya.
Fly in and relax. And always have wine stocked for your visitors with some cheese and spread :) And clean sheets and towels ready to go.
12:30 p.m. Hudson for lunch on the patio or any good restaurant near your work
7 p.m. Marvin for dinner and drinks on the deck afterwards
Your guests can go to White House during the day and check out U Street/14th Street Corridor and Adam's Morgan to keep them busy while you are work. Give them a small map of the city and write down numbers for where they should stop/shop/eat/see. Include, art galleries on 14th and parks for good people watching.
1 p.m. Mie N Yu for lunch
7:30 p.m. Co. Co. Sala for dinner and then a little nightlife afterwards
During the day your house guests can shop in Georgetown, eat a Georgetown Cupcake, go to the waterfront and people watch, check out some Embassies up Mass. Ave. and stroll through Dupont. Also, I always try to take my house guests to the National Cathedral. It's massive and beautiful and the parks are serene.
1 p.m. 1905 for brunch.
This is always there last day in the city and they should be exhausted by now. Take them to brunch, fill them with champagne and then maybe stroll along the monuments if you have time before they head out.
