After spending a night in Grand Canyon, we drove about 2.5 hours east toward Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona. Before this trip, I did not have a proper appreciation for the glorious landscapes that are housed in Southwest, USA. The mountains, canyons, the structures...the natural landscapes only improved the more we drove. If only I knew that was a warm-up for the gorgeous views to come.
Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Detox to Retox (D2R): Yoga + Beer Tasting event at Hellbender Brewing Company in Northeast, Washington D.C. Led by the amazing yoga instructor Amy Rizzotto (E-RYT), the monthly series consists of one hour of pretty intense yoga, followed by a free beer tasting at Hellbender Brewing Company. This is a “bring your own mat” event, although there are mats on hand just in case you don’t have one. Tickets are $25 per person and include yoga, a four-beer tasting and 20% off of all beers, merchandise and growlers.
Autumn has arrived! Why not ring in the new season with a festive and seasonal cocktail? Nothing says fall is here more than something that’s pumpkin spiced. This month, sit back and drink to one of the most fun seasons with a fun twist on the staple White Russian…the Pumpkin Spice White Russian.
This past Sunday I ventured to the Taste of DC, an annual 2-day food festival which takes over a good portion of Pennsylvania Avenue in the Northwest corridor of the District. Over 50 D.C. area restaurants and food trucks participated this year, with samples ranging from $2-$8. There were Asian, Italian, and American cuisines present, and even Ethiopian and Jamaican restaurants participating. The festival included a wine walk, music stage, beer garden, a culinary stage, and novelties like oversized beer pong, giant Jenga, a Stella Artois gif booth & a slew of food trucks.
