Founding Farmers DC

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to show some good friends one of my favorite DC restaurants, Founding Farmers.  My dear friend Amy, who was one of my supervisors during my on-campus job in the community service office at Dickinson, was in town with her daughter, Meg, who was interviewing for grad school.  Amy…

Cuba Libre DC

My stomach is full right now, and my heart is happy.  I met up with my dear friend, Anthony, for dinner at Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar.  Our original plan was to meet at Habana Village in Adams-Morgan.  However, they are not open on Tuesdays.  I was in the mood for Cuban food, so…
