EAT
Check out Mike Isabella’s Kapnos for Grecian inspired small plates. Two wood-fire grills roast succulents all day for guest to enjoy. 

DO
Walk along U Street and take in the African-American Civil War Memorial, and the museum at the corner of Vermont Avenue dedicated to not-to-be-forgotten war heroes.

STAY
Hop on Metro and whiz to Alexandria, VA. Check into the Hotel Monaco Alexandria, in the heart of Old Town. Order a Wii to your room and get in touch with your inner teenager. 

EAT
Named for the president whose face graces the $20 bill, Jackson 20, the hotel’s signature kitchen, features a killer happy hour between 3-7 pm when “working man” beers are priced $2/can. Wine is always nicely priced: 20 of the bottles are less than 20 bucks.

DO
Head to George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate, Museum and Gardens to walk the same grounds the capital’s signature good man did 250 years earlier.
