So much shopping, so little energy after eating everything in sight. The Georgetown BID and Georgetown Main Street (GMS) have teamed up to once again participate in Small Business Saturday. This year, you can take advantage of some great deals and support local for an extended, two-week promotion, starting on Small Business Saturday (Nov. 28) and running through Saturday, Dec. 12. Retail and experiential specials include a free mini Daylesford candle with a $100 purchase at Pillar and Post, holiday cards at Just Paper & Tea, and an open exhibition, in the company of silence, at Jewelers'Werk Galerie. Food favorites include hard hot cider and mulled wine at Georgetown Social, one 12" pizza and an appetizer for $25 at Pizzeria Paradiso, and a bonus $10 with the purchase of a $50 Brasserie Liberté gift card. Visit our Small Business Saturday page for the full list, which we'll be updating as new promotions are added. Next week, we'll also unveil our 2020 curated gift guides, for even more holiday shopping inspiration!

Physically Attracted to This Sandwich

More than a pretty face, it's got layers. Clyde's just opened a new virtual kitchen, District MeltHouse, that's the stuff delivery dreams are made of. Cheese is the star of the show, with grilled cheese options including The Cubano (Swiss, roasted mojo pork, Virginia ham, fried pickles, and dijonnaise), District BBQ (cheddar, pulled pork, BBQ sauce, onion rings, bread and butter pickles), and the All American Breakfast (American cheese, a fried egg, sausage, hash-brown patty, and MeltHouse hot sauce). Mac and cheese is also available, should you need more dairy - plus wine, beer, spirits, and hard seltzers. In other ghost kitchen news, Georgetown Gourmet just launched Porchetta District, which features sandwich varieties of this Italian street food favorite. Try the Banh Mi'sh (picked cabbage, Sriracha mayo, and cilantro), or signature Porco (porchetta, crackling, arugula, and olive oil) - all hand-carved and served on ciabatta bread.

I Live Here Now

Thou shall probably covet. As part of its Nov. 23 hotel reopening, Rosewood Washington, D.C., is unveiling its new townhouse accommodations. Built in the 1700s and situated directly adjacent to the hotel, the six one-bedroom townhouses are each approximately 1,100 square feet over four floors. Designed by Thomas Pheasant, the townhomes include private entrances, outdoor patios, fully equipped kitchens and lower-level laundry rooms - with added services also available, such as chef-cooked meals and barbeques on the private terrace, personalized pantry stocking and unlimited access to the property’s gym and rooftop pool. We'll take it.

Fresh Meat

It's November, we're weary, and the "cut above the rest" lines are coming out of retirement. CUT by Wolfgang Puck is also reopening Monday, Nov. 23 at the Rosewood! Beginning with dinner service only, this evolved version of the refined steak restaurant is offering new menu items including fire-roasted eggplant with green curry, crispy garlic and coriander; Koginut squash tortelloni with ricotta, amaretti and sage; Virginia rockfish; and a rotating selection of ceviche, oysters and sashimi. On the dessert side, Spanish cheesecake with Valencia orange-yuzu marmalade is a highlight. Make your reservations today; dinner will be available Sunday - Thursday, 5:30 pm - 10 pm, and Friday - Saturday until 10:30 pm. You can also check out their Thanksgiving offerings - including a dine-in experience, and take-away feast - for a pretty divine holiday meal.

Jackie Spots Available Jump Bike

First families - they're just like us! Join Dwane Starlin, member of the Guild of Professional Tour Guides, Sunday, Nov. 21 from 12 pm - 1 pm for The Kennedys in Georgetown Virtual Tour. You'll learn about the homes and neighborhood spots frequented by President Kennedy and Jackie during their years in Washington. See where the couple got engaged, their Georgetown home, and where Jackie stayed after JFK’s assassination in 1963. A recorded lecture will be followed by a live Q&A. This is a virtual program; attendees will receive a Zoom link the day before the tour. If you'd prefer to walk the route yourself, follow our Kennedy Walking Tour guide.
