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
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
Welcome back from the weekend everyone. Hope you ate something tasty. We’re back in the swing of things, and to prove last week wasn’t a fluke we got more deals to get you eating this week.
Must Buy: The Capitol Deal back in action this week with a tasty kabob deal. $12.50 for $25 at Kabob Bazaar (two location, Bethesda and Arlington) is a really tasty offering. I’m a big fan of good kabob (I’m a sucker for lamb kabob) and Kabob Bazaar fits the bill here. Not much more to say on this, so pick your location and get to it.Read On
One of my New Years Resolutions was to learn more about coffee. With Swing’s coming next door to my office, I figured it was about time I learn more about what keeps me going while on the job. No more swill for this foodie. Part of this resolution was to veer away from “corporate coffee.” Call me a snob (I know), call me a jerk (that hurts), I can take it.
What I’m looking for is a neighborhood coffee shop with good pastries, good coffee (I’m not expert on what constitutes good coffee), and a good atmosphere.Read On
We’re creeping toward the end of the week and this weekend is looking nice. Hopefully you’re healthy and will be able to enjoy it. I spoke too soon yesterday, but today I think is my day to return to health. We got one deal and it’s so-so, but check it out.
Fifty-Fifty: Shirlington has a lot of great spots. It’s a quaint area with a nice a movie theater and good dining. If you’re looking for a night out and you have to have a deal then today’s Scoutmob to Bungalow Sports Grill (2766 S Arlington Mill Dr., Arlington) could be right up your alley.Read On
We’re halfway through and if you’re like me, you may now just be getting back to health. I don’t know what hit DC, but boy have I been sick. Finally feeling better, here are some deals that might make you feel a little better:
Must Buy: Glover Park is a pretty good dining area. There’s a lot of solid options and good deals to be had. Today’s Scoutmob for Bourbon (2348 Wisconsin Ave., NW) is just one such deal. Offering solid food and good drinks, this $15 discount (excluding happy hour) will get you on your way.Read On
Unless you’ve been trying to not follow the DC food scene, the name Union Market shouldn’t be a mystery to you. The new open air market from the developer Edens has been a hot talking point for DC foodies and those interested in the changing landscape of NoMA/H St. Now I’m not here to debate whether it’s good or bad for the area (I think it’s probably ultimately a positive) or whether or not it’s good for the food scene (again it’s probably ultimately a positive, but I’d like to see the prices be a little more reasonable).Read On
