Date Nights DC Itinerary: A Few Good Men

Eat

Check out Chef Mike Isabella’s Kapnos for Greek-inspired small plates. Two wood-fire grills roast succulent dishes all day for guest to enjoy.

Do

Walk along U Street and take in the African-American Civil War Memorial and the accompanying 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 an Xbox 360 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 p.m. when “working man” beers are priced $2 per 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.
