Happy Monday again! We had a very busy, but fun week last week and another one ahead. Last week started off with a trip to the Alexandria waterfront for a sneak peek of Blackwall Hitch’s new Spring/Summer menu.
We tasted Upland Brewing sour beers paired with All Purpose pizza and drove out to Leesburg to preview the new Delirium Cafe USA. The fun continued over the weekend with a visit to the Petworth Farmer’s Market, hosting Tom’s parents for a Mother’s Day brunch and little a jazz last night at Ten Tigers Parlor. This week continues to be just as fun with a concert on Tuesday night and then a weekend in NYC and New Jersey.
If you haven’t filled your calendar quite yet, here are our B.S. Best Bets for things to do in and around DC this week.

P.S. Did you notice the name change? From now on, The Weekly B.S. Report will be known as B.S. Best Bets, mainly because I’m obsessed with alliteration. Sorry for any confusion.
