Jesus, (Red) Toque the Wheel

Believe it or not, Bex has only had Indian food once in her entire life. A girl who loves spicy food and has only had Indian food once?! What is wrong with that..well, Red Toque set out to fix that. This was Bex’s second Indian food experience and who better to accompany her on this little date…

Ophelia’s is o(fish)ally a hit for brunch!

The Chesapeake Room has officially been revamped into Ophelia’s Fish House right on Barrack’s Row and dang, is it a wonderful joint! The brunch items are wicked good and definitely exceeded my expectations. My oldest brother, Tom, and I had a great brunch at Ophelia’s right before the Christmas holiday.

This top restaurant in D.C. does not need to fish(ers) for compliments..

Georgetown is always my favorite place to paddleboard/kayak on the waterfront, to stroll around with friends or to shop in and then spend much more money than planned. Interestingly enough, I never really go out to eat in the area because I will typically trip it to my favorite shop, Baked & Wired, for a treat and espresso. I always, however, pass by…

I’m (hazel)nuts about you, Nocciolata

What could honestly be better than chocolate and peanut butter together? Well, probably a lot, I guess, if you’re allergic to peanut butter. Then, the combo would not be so great and also, your life would be really sad. Just saying. The new Nocciolata Hazelnut & Cocoa Spread is made with ingredients that are all farmed…

Pizza a la MOD(e)

Pizza. Can’t live with it, can’t live without it. When it comes to MOD Pizza, I knew I would be in trouble. Bex seemingly likes every type of topping, condiment, spice, and food (let’s be honest) imaginable. So, when she set eyes on basically what looked like “The Chipotle of Pizza Heaven,” aka MOD Pizza, she…

One of Chinatown’s best restaurants? You don’t SEI!

i don’t really fancy the Chinatown area of Washington, D.C. all too often – not because I don’t like it but more so because I have just never explored it enough. During my first visit to SEI in Chinatown over the summer, I fell in love with the vibe of the place – so warm and sentimental….

Yo, I got the in-cider scoop! Check it out

I’m FALL-ing in love….with this hot ruby cider that is unlike any traditional apple cider I’ve ever had. Hot Ruby has a cranberry base with hints of pineapple and citrus and can be drunk hot or cold. Talk about a wicked good mix for a snazzy autumn cocktail! Originally created by the late Ruby Faye, Hot…

Just a-peach-iating my last summer margarita

Summer? What summer! Man, time flies. Seems like I moved back to D.C. yesterday and yet I just had my three-month review as an account coordinator at Ketchum two days ago. Hard to believe how fast those three months of summer have gone, AND that some of those lovely D.C. rooftop bars will be shutting…

Jack of all Trades, Master of (the Sticky) Bun

There is no doubt that Mama Doser was definitely dubbed “Master of the Cinnamon Bun” by all family members, neighbors, and all her children’s sports teams. Every few weeks throughout my childhood, she would treat the family to a post-church batch of cinnamon buns for Sunday brunch. My brothers and I would really thank God for…
