Baby, It's Cold Outside

Now that the temperature is way down, it's hard even for me to want to go out. Just the idea of packing on the layers, walking through howling wind, and rushing from door to door to get out of the cold is enough to make me reconsider the journey. So, wherever I go has got to be worth it. A new environment usually does the trick and there's enough new stuff in DC to make it worthwhile:

  • Vinoteca - wine bar at 11th and U NW
  • Veranda - restaurant at 11th and P NW; can't wait to try the ricotta cheesecake!
  • Red Derby - bar on 14th near Columbia Heights/Georgia Ave metro; can't beat a beer and a shot for $5!
  • Cork - on 14th in Logan Circle; according to fellow city girl Megan, it's not open just yet
  • The Park at 14th - at 14th and I NW; the cocktails named after First Ladies sound quite interesting
You know what else is enough to get me out into the cold? Chocolate! For me, the absolute best chocolate in the city is the hot chocolate at Les Halles. It comes served in a silver pitcher (no single serving here!) with mini brownies. Pure heaven! Now all I have to do is find a hot, sexy man to cuddle up with...

Glad to see that someone has reminded you of Veritas. It's definitely new enough to be on your list. So what's up with all the wine bars anyway??

I know it's November and all but dang, I'm not ready for the cold weather!!!

Thanks for the Veritas reminder! Checked it out. Small and cozy with lots of great wines. But what's with the lighting in the bathroom? I could barely see well enough to reapply lipstick! Good bathroom lighting is a must for any city girl.

I don't go out as much

I find DC nightlife at its best in the winter

I am all about Adams Morgan for the cold weather. Since I don't like to commit to much in life (including staying at one place for an entire night) I love that there are a million different places- no feeling stuck.

Alison - I'm with you. I need the ability to hop around during the night and Adams Morgan is perfect for that! U Street isn't bad either.
