Fiery DC Restaurants and Bars to Warm Your Winter Nights

Winter weather has arrived to the DC area like a belligerent, outrageously-clad party guest to a New Year’s Eve party at 2 am:  unfashionably late and compensating with an overstatement.  When Jack Frost rears his ugly head, it can take Rocky-Balboa-type motivation to get us out from under the covers and out on the town.  Fortunately, DC is peppered with bars and restaurants housing cozy fireplaces, patio fire pits and outdoor heaters - some haunts even roll out the blankies to really turn up the cozy.  So, throw on those snow boots and get out there - a warm destination and your salvaged social life awaits.

Valentine’s Day DC 2016 - From Heartfelt to Light Hearted


Valentine’s Day rolls around every year inviting us to dive back into the chocolate and wine just as our New Year’s resolutions are starting to stand a chance.  While the holiday is admittedly bathed in social stereotypes and fueled by greeting card company greed, if taken lightly it can simply stand as a way to celebrate love in the many forms it takes.  Celebrate in class with a special sweetheart, keep it silly with friends, or run nearly naked through the streets of DC with a mass of scantily clad good samaritans - the spectrum is wide open.  

Go Out For a Valentine’s Dinner

Snow Day DC: The City’s Best Spots for Snowy Fun

 Snow in Brookland

We all remember the thrill of waking up early to jump out of bed, peek out the window and turn on the news to check for snow closures.  When the name of your school rolled across the bottom of the screen, the only thing left to do was pull on your snow boots and revel in a day of unexpected freedom and snowy glory.  Snow is supposed to show up by the end of the year, and Jack Frost is meant to really step up his game by late January.  Make sure you have the best sledding spot near you on lockdown before that first precious snow day off from school or work rolls around.

Iceberg Homes Arrive in DC

4615 Dexter ST NW DC. Iceberg House

The term “iceberg home” may draw images of a sparkling frozen city, but these architectural phenomena in fact have nothing to do with ice.  Just as an iceberg appears smaller above the surface of the water while a much larger frozen island floats below, iceberg homes are houses with multi-level underground square footage that dwarfs that of the above ground house - subterranean additions often extend several stories down and far beyond the perimeter of the above ground building, allowing the uber-wealthy to discreetly expand their properties.  Below lavish mansions lurk multiple sub-basement levels home to bowling lanes, swimming pools, multi-car garages, private cinemas and more. 

Iceberg homes emerged in London around

DC Winter Pub Crawls

Saying goodbye to the holidays is hard.  We all have to make the transition from time spent celebrating with family and friends back to business as usual, and the post holiday blues can easily creep in.  While your vacation time bank may be as empty as your Christmas stocking, it doesn’t mean you can’t keep the celebratory spirit alive during the winter months that can seem to drag on forever.  Heading out with pals for a city pub crawl is a great way to keep your enthusiasm for the new year alive.  Rediscover old favorites and new gems among DC’s bar scene and joyfully flood the streets of a different neighborhood with a different crew of varyingly intoxicated happy strangers each weekend until the spring sun makes its debut.
