Therapy & Exercise Prove Less Enjoyable  

This appears to be the end times, so get the dessert. The Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW)'s Winter Restaurant Week is in full swing, with 12 Georgetown restaurants participating through this Sunday, January 19. Make your reservation at a Georgetown restaurant you've been meaning to try, including the recently opened Brasserie Liberté -- plus neighborhood favorites like 1789Café MilanoFilomena RistoranteFarmers Fishers BakersRistorante PiccoloThe SovereignLa ChaumiereAmerica Eats TavernNick's Riverside GrillTony and Joe's Seafood Place, or Clyde's of Georgetown -- and enjoy breakfast or lunch for $22, or dinner for $35.

Here For the Right Reasons   

If the word 'windmill' means anything to you, 1) contact Georgetown BID's communications director to discuss all things Peter and Hannah B.; 2) mark your calendar for Church Hall's 'Not a Sports Watch Party Party' this Monday, January 20 during The Bachelor. Enjoy a $7 cinnamon old fashioned or cranberry-infused gin and tonic, put your walls down, and prepare for another episode of turbulence. And for God's sake, don't touch Kelsey's champagne.

A Pick-Up Line That Actually Works

Replace a white van with a Toyota Camry, and the promise of candy with a free iPhone charge, and an entire generation has wiped that whole 'never get in a stranger's car' bit from their brains. It's fine? DDOT has installed three passenger pick-up/drop-off zones in Georgetown to make your Uber and Lyft experiences that much easier. These are curbside no-parking locations that are available 24/7 for pick-up and drop-off. We encourage you to go to one of these locations -- the East side of the 1200 block of Wisconsin Avenue (from Tory Burch to John Fluevog); 1066 Wisconsin Avenue (in front of Frye and Bluestone Lane); or 3111 K Street (in front of AMC Theater) -- to hail an Uber, Lyft, or other rideshare service, when possible.

In Between Guitar Lessons & Rosetta Stone

While you're still riding this totally unsustainable bout of new year's energy, clear some space in your life for creative practice. Halcyon Arts Lab (1801 35th St NW) is offering a 4-part weekly workshop series beginning this Sunday, January 19 from 8 am - 5 pm that will inspire curiosity and showcase the transformational power of making art. Artist Nicole Salimbene will lead participants in a series of writing and art exercises introducing visual journaling as a tool for reflection, inquiry, and meditation. Through creative experimentation, this workshop will also provide space for a deeper awareness of the internal and external matters guiding your life. No prior art skills needed for this non-traditional class!

Light, Flight, Paper, Shoot!

Parents just don't understand...nature. Check out the new, three-generation exhibit Light, Flight and Paper Pulp at Washington Printmakers Gallery (1641 Wisconsin Ave NW), on display through January 26. Sophie Schrader’s lights, Ann Zahn's linoleum cuts on plant-based papers, and Julie Zahn's bird collages collectively have a holistic feel, as light feeds plants and plants feed birds. It also demonstrates how the depiction of nature has shifted and evolved over the course of three generations.

Beauty is Only Skin Deep

If those Christmas cookie-induced breakouts are like house guests that just won't leave, Take Care is ready to, well, take care of it. The Wisconsin Avenue skincare and beauty boutique is now offering facials! Treatments by Marie Veronique are perfect for out-of-balance skin, while their Sodashi Skincare facials mimic a luxe spa experience. Enjoy one of Take Care's peaceful rooms, as a talented esthetician uses only the best products. Every facial also includes a neck and head treatment with a jade scalp comb. We don't know exactly what that means, but we want it. For the real story of Take Care and the woman behind it, check out our byGeorge blog on owner Becky Waddell.

Talk of the (George)Town

We're loving these adorable Georgetown restaurant sketches by @_withpeninhand_. The real test is whether you can name each one without looking at the sign.
