Best of DC

Every year, the Washington City Paper asks DC residents to vote for their favorites in just about every category imaginable from favorite Bloody Mary to favorite doctor (One Medical Group, oh yeah!) to favorite strip club. Yep, no service goes unnoticed. And they also...

Adventures with Mom

It’s rare that my mom and I get to spend time together in DC by ourselves, so when she decided to come down from Pennsylvania for a mother daughter visit, I knew I had to cram in as much of the fun stuff we both like to do as possible. We love history and visiting...

Cherry Blossom Pub

If there is one thing to know about DC in the spring, it’s that cherry blossoms rule all. Droves of tourists from all over the world come to the city to see the famous Japanese blossoms that line the tidal basin and the reflecting pool of the Washington Monument....

Drumroll please…

We finally made it to Spring! Although the word feels a bit overdramatic given it was one of the warmest winters on record, and that mushy white slush last week was the only venture into a white winter we had all season. Never the less, the warm weather is upon us and...

First we crawl, then we walk, then we march!

One of the cool things about this march was it represented a lot of different points of view and covered a lot of issues. I thought I was going with my family to take a stand for women’s rights, which was true, but experiencing this march with my 8 month old made me...

Fresh Flowers and even fresher tour updates

Sitting outside on this gorgeous early spring day- basking in the evening sun staying out an hour longer, and relishing the fact that it’s too early for mosquitos- I gotta say I’m pretty jazzed.   This is that perfect time of year when everything is new.  Grass...

Get your Hibernate on with this cozy cocktail

Diversity.  That's one of the things that we love the most about our DC Food Tours. Each stop has their own unique story, and we love taking the deep dive to find out what makes them each so special! This is why this year we decided to pull back the curtain and share...

We know what we’re thankful for!

It's Bread, but this ain't no wonder bread we're talking about! Carpe DC Food Tours is Thankful for Bread for the City For the past year, our food tours has been taking locals and tourists alike on culinary and historic adventures through the U Street & Shaw...

What does your food feel like?

So you know that saying ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’? Full disclosure, I have been trying to turn that into a food tour tweet for much longer than I’d like to admit. (I know there’s at least um.. 7 of you who have just done this and are wondering...

The Power of Produce!

So I know it’s been a while since the last post… which for us is actually a good thing since it means we’ve been busy seeing your beautiful faces out on our tours! (insert audience applause here) But that being the case, we wanted to bring the blog back with a BANG!...

One Hell of a Brewery

So not sure if you guys are as big NPR fans as I am, but I love a good Saturday morning Car Talk. Listening to Click and Clack on my way to brunch is a must. And I'm not in it for car knowledge. Their puzzlers are pretty epic, and they’ve inspired me to try one of my...

Community, Power….&Pizza!

If you can’t tell from my previous winter-bashing excerpts, I’m a warm weather kind of gal. Smelling all the flowers,  and finally getting to sit on a park bench for lunch makes me feel a little nostalgic for all those carefree afternoons as a kid, playing outside,...
