A 4-day week means that the weekend comes early! We made it everyone. It’s Friday. It’s still cold and it might snow. Cross your fingers. We got some deals for you to sample this weekend and they’re both good.
Must Buy: Another fine job from Scoutmob today. Virginia doesn’t allow deals on liquor so once again you’re out of luck on that front. But today you’re getting 50% off to Abi Azteca (3055 Columbia Pike, Arlington). With a max $15 discount that’s two entrees for the price of one.Read On
Happy Inauguration weekend everyone. Whether you’re sticking around or heading out of town, a long weekend feels good. Hopefully you have some good eating lined up to go with your celebrating. Our deals today are a couple of meh options, but maybe that’s just me. Happy Friday!
Fifty-Fifty: Today’s Scoutmob is intriguing, but ultimately falls short on price. 50% off at Bilbo Baggins Global Restaurant and Pub (208 Queen St., Alexandria). With only $12 as the max discount, you’re going to burn through this deal quickly.Read On
I see you rolling your eyes already, but hear me out on this.
For Hannukah my family received an ice cream maker. Immediately I snapped up the gift and spirited it away back to DC. Suffering from a partial lactose intolerance (probably psychosomatic) I don’t go for ice cream. My love for froyo is well documented, but it’s possible I love sorbet even more. For the last month I’ve been experimenting and I’ll say I’m getting pretty good.
Making sorbet is extremely easy. After a few initial botches (I’ll get to that in a minute), I’ve hit my stride.Read On
One deal for you this morning, and it’s aimed at a pretty specific group of people, which means for only the second time ever we’re breaking out the rare Must Buy/Fifty-Fifty Combo rating. Here you go.
Must Buy/Fifty-Fifty: Are you a vegan? Do you frequently dine with a vegan? Are you trying to impress a vegan? Then you’ll absolutely want to drive up to Soul Vegetarian Restaurant near Howard University and take advantage of today’s Scoutmob for $5 off food or smoothies. Everyone else?Read On
If I were to make a list of the places I’ve eaten at most in DC, Tortilla Cafe would easily be in the top three. The Mexican-Salvadoran restaurant, located in Capitol Hill just across from Eastern Market, may have the most reasonable menu in the District. With nothing above $9, most things below $7, and pretty much everything good to eat, Tortilla Cafe should be in everyone’s regular rotation.
Let’s start with breakfast. A stack of pancakes and egg? Only $4.25, and perfectly tasty, if nothing spectacular.Read On
Last night I was kicking around a few ideas about where to feature next. And then it hit me, and I thought to myself, duh! GW Deli. How have I not talked about it yet? If you know me you know I love delis and I love GW (cue a snide, “did you go to GW?” from ETD web designer Jordan Sheckman). But it’s true, this place like no other is home. I’ve been eating here for the last seven years (less regularly now), and everytime I bite into a sandwich it tastes exactly like it’s the first time.
Now this is your standard to go counter deli.Read On
