When in The District
When in D.C., find chill spots to eat and visit the National African American Museum.
Busboys and Poets really hit my type of vibes.
Located on a corner intersection, there’s no way you could really miss it. As soon as you walk in, you catch hipster vibes between the background music, art on the walls, and the rest of the décor. Busboys and Poets really has something to offer to everyone whether it’s grabbing a bite to eat, checking out their bookstore in the front entrance, or doing both. Overwhelmed by the menu, I couldn’t decide what to eat as I wanted a little bit of everything. It all sounded so good! The good news is when you brunch with your girls, you’re able to taste a few their dishes while still enjoying yours! I had the sweet potato pancakes with a side of turkey sausage. My meal is not pictured as it seems I got carried away photographing each dish that I apparently forgot mine. But honey, let me tell you that those sweet potato pancakes were fluffy and I am definitely adding this to the menu for Sunday breakfast from now on.
• Scrambled eggs with grits, turkey sausage, whole wheat toast
• Busboys and Poets French toast
• the Cauliflower Frittata which is an open-faced omelet, cauliflower, swiss cheese, parmesan cheese, sour cream, and topped with arugula.
If you have the chance, stop by Busboys and Poets for some good eats!
The National Museum of African American History and Culture is a museum that should be on everyone’s place to visit while in Washington, D.C. Tickets are free, however, there are timed entry passes that sell out quickly. Fortunate for us, a friend of ours was able to get us in. The museum is 5 floors and features exhibits and collections that are in chronological order beginning with slavery on the first floor. I was able to view the Emmett Till Memorial which was such an emotional experience; it is a MUST for everyone. I have included a few pictures, but for the rest, you’ll just have to visit for yourself.
Last but not least, if you’re looking to satisfy a pizza craving or finished bar hopping, “&Pizza” is your go-to spot. After a night out drinking with the ladies, we ran into this place and nothing warms my heart more than a good pizza. Basically, you walk up to the counter and add sauces and toppings of your choice. The staff was cool despite being busy late at night. Prices are reasonable and worth it. For my creation, I added lots of veggies, balsamic vinaigrette, and later topped it with arugula for some green.
