Looked over some previous threads and I have some ideas of places to check out, but I'd like to get thoughts on three subjects-
1. Bakery - need to order a cake for my father's birthday. We're staying in a house near Germantown/Schnitzelburg, I think.
2. Bourbon bars. Need some brown liquor cocktails.
3. I've seen lots of recs for foreign food. I'm from Chicago and can get that here. What's a local joint we shouldn't miss? I've heard we should go somewhere for a hot brown? other thoughts?
