Hey guys! It’s Monday again. I hope everyone had a great first week of Spring. The weather was all over the place, but we managed to make the most of it. Saturday was beautiful so we celebrated accordingly by spending the day in Georgetown on a fun Mangia DC food tour (stay tuned for more about that later this week). Sunday was less beautiful, so we knocked out a bunch of errands and deep cleaned the apartment. We haven’t gotten out to see the cherry blossoms yet this year, but I did spy these beauties on a walk with Ashton right here in Petworth. Living in DC is such a beautiful thing.
Blossoms aside, here are some of the best things happening around town this week.
Ristorante Piccolo Tre Monti Wine Dinner
Join Ristorante Piccolo on Tuesday, March 28th for an exclusive six-course dinner paired with Tre Monti Wines, with a presentation by proprietor Vittorio Navacchia himself. Encounter results of the collaborations with some of the best Italian oenologists, and why this winery received the first Gambero Rosso’s “Three Glasses” award in 1997. Tickets are $69 per person. When making reservations, be sure to mention WINE DINNER in the notes.

Also Coffee wrote a brilliant post about overcoming imposter syndrome that every human should read.
I’ve read JDLand for Navy Yard area news for a couple of years now, but recently found myself in tears reading her beautiful tribute to her late husband, Bill Walsh. After just a few years living in DC, I know how quickly the city can become a beloved character in the story of a marriage.
