DC Restaurant Week
Summer Restaurant Week is August 9-15th. It is literally my favorite week of the year. Gather the girls, get dressed up and hit some of DC's best restaurants to enjoy a 3 course meal for $35 to $55. I mean...what's not to love?
Alright, so here's my top 5 list of places (in no particular order) that are participating in restaurant week to check out. I may add a few honorable mentions as well. A full list of restaurants are available on www.ramw.org

I am so excited I got tix to Astroworld. I kept refreshing that Ticketmaster link until I was finally able to purchase. Reminded me of the good old days pre-Covid. The 2 day festival hosted by Travis Scott sold out in minutes. I’m sure you can find resale tix on the internet somewhere though.
