Five things I want to do in DC

In two weeks, I will spend seven nights in Washington, DC, where I lived for ten years, for a combination of business and pleasure. These are some of the things on my to do list.

1. Revisit old favorite hangouts like Proof and Estadio and Dino and Chinatown Coffee Company and The Passenger and Taylor Gourmet and Palena and…wait. How many days do I have?

2. Check out Union Market especially Righteous Cheese and Salt & Sundry. How cool to see these female entrepreneurs pursue their dreams!

3. Meet some of the fine people I have connected with via Twitter including @floridagirlindc, @washingtina, @jigolden and more! I also very much need quality time with @candacearm.

4. Attend my friend’s baby shower. Yep, this friend whose bachelorette weekend we celebrated in Miami last January and whose wedding I posted about. She done got knocked up.

5. Jog around the monuments. Kidding. I didn’t do that when I lived in DC. Why would I do that now after all of this?

DC people, what am I missing? If one of your favorites opened in the year since I left, I’d love it if you told me about it in the comments.

Twitter Spotlight: Tammy Gordon

Update: @FloridaGirlinDC is now @Tammy. What a great Twitter handle!

Tammy is another vivacious woman I regret not meeting during my years living in Washington, DC. Know that I plan to rectify that during my upcoming trip there.

Tammy’s Instagram account is a terrific way to peek in at her exciting life full of good friends, good food and one super cute dog named Ike.

@floridagirlindc: Funny Democrats with jobs that like girls who eat out a lot and have small dogs. So, clearly I’m about to fall in love with a dull Republican that hates farmers markets and loves cats.
