Date Nights DC Itinerary: Stop the Presses

  • PRINT

DO
Make headlines with the news junkie in your life. Start your date with a visit to the Newseum, which celebrates the history of news and journalism. While here, make sure not to miss Anchorman: The Exhibit. This “kind of a big deal” display features more than 60 costumes and props from the hit movie.

EAT
When you’re ready to break for a bite, try The Source by Wolfgang Puck, just around the corner from the Newseum. While enjoying the Asian-influenced dishes and the choice of more than 300 types of wines, you might just find yourself sitting next to famous DC power players and journalists. 

DO
From there, take a stroll up Pennsylvania Avenue to the National Portrait Gallery to see the installation “The Network,” a video portrait featuring group interviews with politicians, journalists, scientists and innovators.

STAY
You’ll want to stay close to the story, and lucky for you, the Loews Madison Hotel is located just across the street from The Washington Post offices.

EAT
Head to Post Pub for a Dip burger (the house specialty). Located near The Washington Post offices, it is a popular watering hole for reporters.
