At the end of July Dustin and I went to DC to see the Eagles in concert. We were both super excited because he had never been and I hadn’t been in several years. We both agreed we wanted to some super touristy things, but also do some things recommended to us by our friends that live there.
When we got to the city on Thursday afternoon we went straight to lunch at SUNdeVICH, a sandwich shop. Each sandwich on the menu is named after a city and they were so delicious!
Before the concert we headed to the Wharf for some drinks and appetizers. The weather was so beautiful.
The concert itself was absolutely amazing. If you have the chance to see the Eagles live, DO IT. For this show, James Taylor opened and Vince Gill was playing with them. It was incredible! I took way too many instastories, but not one actual picture… Blogger fail.
On Friday morning Dustin and I got up and grabbed a couple of coffees from La Colombe and headed to the White House. In true DC fashion there were protestors out front, but it made for a very interesting morning. We spent the morning just walking around and taking in the monuments. I had forgotten how much I love DC and all its history.
Friday night we ate dinner at All Purpose, an upscale pizza place that was incredible. We had their fried meatballs and one of their classic pizzas. So delicious!
On Saturday, we woke up early and went to the Newseum. This might have been my favorite part of the trip. That place was so interesting! I loved learning about history through the eyes of journalists and the FBI exhibit absolutely blew my mind. I highly recommend visiting the Newseum when in DC.
After we left the museum, we headed to brunch at Le Diplomate. The atmosphere of this restaurant was so cool and the food was even better. We had a pitcher of frose that was to die for!
We spent the rest of the afternoon leisurely walking the city. Saturday night we decided to go to Momofuku for dinner and it did not disappoint. We have basically been obsessed with Momofuku and Milk Bar since watching Chef’s Table on Netflix.
We started with the dumplings and Dustin got hanger steak while I decided on the branzino. The food was absolutely incredible! We finished the meal with a peaches and cream dessert that was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Dustin and I are actually going to try and recreate it this weekend!
On Sunday we made a trip to Milk Bar with plenty of goodies to take home and a cookbook to see if I can try to recreate the famous “Birthday Cake.”
We had such a great weekend in DC and can’t wait to go back. What are some of your favorite things in DC? Anything we definitely need to do on our next trip?
