Coming to DC over labor day weekend with a group of 9 from Chicago and Minnesota. We have most meals figured out, but are looking for two recommendations:
1.) Drinks on Friday night: We all get in on Friday night and would like a place to meet up for drinks. We're staying in Crystal City, but want to get a little closer to the main (mall?) area of DC. (Basically we want to avoid Alexandria since we'll be spending most of the weekend there for a wedding.) Outside seating and a great view would be awesome. We're in our late 20's, so nothing too stuffy or too college-y.
2.) Brunch on Sunday: We're planning on spending the morning checking out the Georgetown area so prefer to be nearby, although I have heard good things about the Blacksalt brunch.
On another note, how difficult would it be for us to get into Tabbard Inn's brunch on a Monday morning?
