The bon chon chicken place kills it too!

Man, haven't been to Bon Chon since I had a kid. We always called ahead. One stupid time we called ahead 45 minutes, and the damn chicken didn't get to us until 90 minutes later. Maybe this weekend we'll just drag the kid with us...

What are your "go to" places when meeting women for casual drinks?
post #200 of 305
The answer is always: Ray's the Steaks or Georgetown Cupcakes.

I assume you're talking about a first date for drinks rather than meeting a woman who might turn into a date. I like hotel bars because they're generally less crowded and more quiet. The Kimpton hotel bars (Rouge, Topaz, Helix, to name a few) are all good. I also like Le Bar at Sofitel and the Madison hotel bar.

If u r from Berlin, you shouldn't really expect much in DC in terms of fashionable shopping. Some members have proposed Tysons Corner Mall in McLean: yeah its a huge mall, but there's nothing there that u wouldn't find in Anytown, Middle America. If u still plan on going to Tysons, do make a stop at the Galleria Mall. It's about 3 blocks from Tysons and has better (albeit pricier) stuff.

Else, go to NYC for ur shopping fix.

Visited DC this past weekend with the GF, I highly recommend Columbia Room for an intimate cocktail bar experience.

had a funny beer ordering experience too. considering you order in milliliters i think. almost got a minikeg....and didn't realize it until she was carrying it to the table - then had to tell her i made a mistake..:-/

incredible though, really. wish my friends can/could handle the heat so I can go back..

As for dimsum...easily accessible. big. smells kinda like pee (3). F'iig awesome. Fortune in Seven Corners. Nuff said

you can always order the half/half at Bon chon. And heads up, a new Bon chon opened in Fairfax. much much better service than the one in anandale but a lot smaller. there's also supposed to be another one opening up in centreville.

checked out rue14, redeem and lost boyz on Friday. First time I checked out rue and redeem and second time I've been to LB. I really like the stuff in LB, but 1) they have kind of a limited selection, and 2) there's not much variety in ppt (everything seems to be $$$). But, the girl who owns it seems to be good people.

Redeem was kind of neat. Didn't find much that I liked but I bought a nice leather belt for $35. Rue14 was meh. Not much outside of Gant/penguin.

georgetown cupcakes is some over rate shit. wtf is so good about them. the cup cakes my mom made when i was a kid taste just as good if not better.

they are just good at marketing. and this red velvet BS, comon, it's not that great.

I was in Gtown on Friday and happened to come across a little chocolate place across the street from GC. It's called J'Chocolatier. Outstanding homemade stuff (cookies, truffles, etc.). Much better option than GC.
