This restaurant had a laid back, cordial atmosphere. The food was tasty. I had the fish of the day with root vegetables, both were fresh and well prepared. Located near the Ford’s theatre, it’s a great place to grab a bite prior to your show. There are several condos for sale in this area ranging from $314K to just shy of $3M – you can have the latter and live in a building with Congressional representatives and White House officials. Call me today to see any one of these…
Over the past few years, Politics and Prose has taken steps to bring more books, authors, and events to the Washington area, enhancing the city’s reputation as a literary hub. As part of that effort, they’ve announced their latest venture—a new branch store, which will open in the Union Market district in northeast D.C. in the fall of 2017.
Many of you may be familiar with efforts underway in recent years to revitalize that historic D.C. neighborhood, once a hub for food distribution throughout the city. The revived indoor food market there already has turned into a booming success, and now P&P will join a number of other retailers in populating a row of soon-to-be-renovated warehouses located next to the market.
The new P&P branch will be smaller than P&P’s main store on Connecticut Avenue, NW but big enough to carry a wide range of books and non-book items. Additionally, with a presence in Union Market, P&P will be well-positioned to host author events in the area, creating a new, metro-accessible destination for people interested in meeting writers, enjoying books, and engaging in conversation. A number of author talks will be held in an event space attached to the new store, while larger ticketed events will take place in the Dock 5 Warehouse venue and elsewhere in Union Market. P&P also will be exploring the possibility of classes, workshops, and children’s activities in the neighborhood.
This initiative comes at a time when P&P is busier than ever. The owners are grateful for the continued support from their book-loving customers and remain committed to finding new ways to serve the broader Washington community.

Haven’t had a popover since my teenage days in Wellesley, Massachusetts, until I visited BLT Steak – a restaurant frequented by the Obamas. Their popovers were amazing and the entire meal was tasty! The noise level, however, made it difficult to hold a conversation. Also, beware, it’s a bit on the pricey side! Great condo for sale close by – call me to view it…
Every summer I look forward to going to Wolf Trap, a Washington, DC national park – a true landmark in every sense. Relaxing on the lawn with a picnic of fine foods, listening to music and enjoying time with family and friends – what more would one want?
“Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.”
A family-owned business that has been in business since 1948. It’s a Greek-Mediterranean Grill that specializes in breakfast and diner foods made from scratch. I had Sofia’s spanakopita, which was excellent – completely worth the calories! We also had the crabcakes, which were out of this world! A definite must-try!
Here are some great Baltimore properties in Sip & Bite’s neighborhood. Perhaps you’ve been considering an investment property or relocating to Charm City? Definitely something to consider at these prices…

REAL ESTATE EXPERIENCE:
As a real estate agent, responsible for residential sales with buyers and sellers in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. To successfully help clients requires utilization of every aspect of public relations, communications, advertising and marketing analysis. Planning creative marketing endeavors to gain maximum exposure for listed properties includes open houses for the public and lunch-time, on-site presentations for the brokers to solicit feedback. Provide ongoing recommendations regarding staging and necessary home improvements to enhance the image of the home. In eleven years, have formed and maintained relationships with contractors that allow my clients to receive cost-effective proposals. Also required is knowledge of current government programs, financial laws and requirements pertaining to home sales and research of comparable and competitive alternatives. Ongoing meetings with clients to update original goals and objectives are constant. Strong interpersonal communication skills have enabled me to build successful teams among diverse professionals at all organizational levels, i.e., banks, mortgage companies, other real estate agents involved, government program officials and, most important, the buyer and seller. The more understanding each team member has, the better information flows in a timely manner enabling the transaction to be completed seamlessly. My success in real estate is due directly to my ability to create an independent marketing brand targeting specific markets. My primary focus is first-time home buyers and sellers who require additional time, nurturing and education about the real estate process; however, it has definitely paid off in satisfied clients and consistent referrals.
