The Source

The Source is Wolfgang Puck’s first foray into DC and as one might expect, the restaurant has been an instant hit and in my opinion, a strong contender for top dining destination in the District. With its chic lounge and intimate upstairs dining room, The Source strikes the balance between cool and sophisticated. Cost – […]

There used to be a club located in Dupont called Dragonfly that Dean and I used to hit up with some regularity. It was great as a starter, intermediary or finishing venue for an evening in DC. The one consistency was that there was always a pretty good crowd, good music yet it was never […]

Tangysweet

Tangysweet is a total rip-off of Pinkberry. Thankfully for DC, it is a pretty good rip-off and I’m absolutely addicted, as are an entire legion of people in the DC area. It’s funny because it wasn’t too long ago I was thinking that it was just a matter of time until someone put a Pinkberry […]
