DC’s National Harbor’s Restaurant Week Feb 4 – 10th!

Yes, this is my hood. Even though I live 4 miles from National Harbor, I just don’t spend enough quality time at one of the DMV’s great hidden gems. All you DMV foodies can get your eat on during National Harbor’s Restaurant Week which takes place February 4th – the 10th. I’m generally not a fan of Restaurant Weeks because always hard to get a table, but I love the concept and since this is only a few miles from my house, I just may have to pounce on this one. Full press release is after the jump.

Songstress Kitten Playing DC 11/22

Believe it or not I was hit by a fire truck last week. A FIRE TRUCK. Unbelievable! So I’m a little late with this, if you are one of those folks staying in the DMV for Thanksgiving and looking for something to do. The female front Rock Band Kitten is playing at the Songbyrd Music House Nov, 22nd. Doors open at 7pm and tickets are only $12. I’m really digging their music. It’s kind of a house, electronic, dance vibe.  Check them out on Spotify.  They have 4 albums up and I’m really feeling Cathedral, especially the title track.

Travel: Unwrap a World of Disney Memories This Holiday at Disney Parks

So, hello, my name is Michelle, I got suckered into buying a Disney Timeshare that I can’t use. Hi Michelle. Ok, so my Orlando Timeshare isn’t through Disney. My timeshare is beautiful but there were so many hidden gotchas with that deal, that I’m still salty. So I’ll hopefully be in Orlando in January hanging with the Mousehouse. If you don’t have a timeshare.

The folks at Disney Parks want to remind you that they are there, ready to rock and make your next Disney Holiday cheap and fun.  Just in time for gift-giving season they just announced several new travel perks. If one of you wants to gift me an entire Disney Vacation, I wouldn’t say no.
