Must See in DC

luckygirl | Oct 10, 2006 06:48 PM


I will be in town with my hubby this week for our annual October trip to DC. I have most of our dining planned and again offer my thanks to those of you who offered input when I asked for help.

My first question today is, other than actual dining, what else should we not miss? Are there any noteworthy bakeries or bread shops? What would be considered the best non-chain food shopping around?

Also, where are the superior coffee shops? I'm looking for good local roasters with nice espresso. Anything around our hotel at Rhode Island and 15 would be ideal but we will travel for good espresso.

Finally are there any noteworthy festivals or events going on later this week or this weekend? They don't need to be food related.

Thanks again for any and all assistance!
