Date Nights DC Itinerary: Stop the Presses

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. Be sure to check out the Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery, which features the most comprehensive collection anywhere of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs. 

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 journos.

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 Mayflower Hotel is located just a few blocks from The Washington Post's brand new office building.

Eat

Get to know your news source more intimately at Off the Record, a politico-frequented hangout located in the basement of the Hay-Adams Hotel, just across from the White House.
