Head down 7th Street and hit up Carmine’s for a world-class carbo-loading session. They serve crowd-pleasing portions of Italian-American classics like spaghetti with meatballs. Life is zesty!
Walk to the National Mall and get ready to Lutz. The National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden Ice Rink is especially romantic at night. The lights are twinkly. The music is soft. The chocolate is hot. Glide. Hold hands. Repeat.
