Studio Eingana: Where Sailormoon art comes to life

When I was a little girl, I never really had a heroine that I wanted to emulate.  I enjoyed watching the mundane Disney cartoons available on TV but they really didn’t have a purpose other than to keep young children entertained.  Even as a young girl, I was always frustrated by the fact that Disney…

Easter egg hunt 2012: The Hunger Games edition

Our jaunt down Georgetown concluded well. After getting lost for 45 minutes, we finally arrived back at Dennis’s house. At this point, no one was capricious over my master plan. In fact, there was even tacit agreement that I had carte blanche with the rest of the evenings activities! Hurrah!   A normal Easter egg hunt…

Easter 2012:Our jaunt around Georgetown

After having a fabulous brunch by Adams Morgan, Dennis, Youssef, and I met up with Jason around the Georgetown waterfront. It was a warm, sunny day full of families and bougie couples. Restaurants and shops were packed, nature was at its best and Georgetown was at its quintessential best.   Besides the waterfront, we all trekked…

Open City Coffeehouse: Great Easter Brunch Spot in D.C

When get into your twentys, Easter tends to fade away in the back of your mind as child-oriented holiday. It’s hard for many young adults to find the alacrity for Easter since many of us feel too old to hunt for eggs and even to go back to church to pay respects. Nonetheless, many of us found…

Faso Foods: Grashoff Chocolate Spread+ Wine= A Happy Marriage

Have you ever went to a wine tasting and felt like something was missing. Albeit, you have the finely aged cheeses, breads and maybe some caviar but there was just something else you needed to add a delish’ conclusion to your wine tasting excursion. If you guessed chocolate, then you are close. If you confidently…

Rest in Peace Chi Chis: The U.S.A will miss your celebration of food!

  For my birthday this year, I wanted to eat at Chi- Chis Mexican restaurant—for the first time ever. I wanted to be a part of the “Celebration of Food”. Since I never got that invite all my life. Alas, this didn’t happen since I learned this year that all of the Chi-Chis restaurants in the United…

Nada Surf at 9:30 Club: Decent concert, sparse crowd

Last night, Nada Surf rocked the 9:30 club to a commodious yet some-what packed audience of hipsters, awkward tweens, and Gen-Xers. Normally, the frosting to any concert experience for me is to max-out my people watching skills. I couldn’t help myself yesterday as I watched a coterie of frazzled hair girls squeel when Nada Surf’s lead…

Girls night out feat. Grashoff’s caramel spread

Last night, me, Kamilla and Sara had a girl’s- night- out in Rockville. Kamilla was the hostess and had a wonderful caserol, soft chocolate cake, fresh red wine and olive platter set out for us. The dress theme for the night was fun and flirty and i’m sure we all got that covered. Kamilla wore…

Dublin Roasters: Aromatic, fresh and robust coffee blends

Frederick tends to be like an hour and a half drive from where I live. Inspite of the long drive, it does merit the exorbitant mileage due to the following..  For starters,  it’s well known for its “clustered spires”  skyline  leaving an indelible print on its historic downtown churches; its  also known for its fiberglass keys, and growing…

Great Harvest also  sells Easter baskets, holiday breads and scrumptious…

Sleighbells at 9:30 Club: One, long, song

 A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to snag tickets to see indie-electronic fave ‘Sleighbells’ perform at the 9:30 club in Washington D.C. I’ve always been a lukewarm fan of the band, ever since i’ve heard them on Pandora.  If you don’t know who they are, then I guess you are not hip enough…
