Fuel up at Art and Soul, DC’s home of Chicago-based chef (formerly Oprah’s personal cook) Art Smith. The first lady has eaten here with friends, and rumor has it they ordered off the menu.
Peep the first lady’s inaugural gown in all its white chiffon one-shoulder loveliness. Designed by Jason Wu, it’s now in the permanent collection of the National Museum of American History. Continue your afternoon workout FLOTUS-style: stroll briskly around the White House perimeter.
Take Metro to Waterfront station to Arena Stage and flash your best First Lady-style smile during the comedy Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery. Starring a cast of 40 different characters, Ken Ludwig's world-premiere adaptation is sure to entertain with quick wit and suspense. Performances run through Feb. 22, 2015.
Since most aren’t lucky enough to call the White House home, snuggle into a suite at the Hay-Adams Hotel - the next best thing. The Obamas stayed here before moving into the White House. Stop by Off the Record and say hello to barman John Boswell. He’s one of the best in the biz.
