#GOT Comes to DC

During a weekend visit to DC, I spent almost 2 hours in line to get into the city’s latest attraction – the Game of Thrones Pop Up Bar. A line formed at least an hour before doors officially opened at 5:00 p.m. Two family members who share the same excitement for the extremely popular series on HBO, joined me in awe of the well decorated venue. It felt like we were journeying through a mini Westeros!

The bar closes the day of the GOT season finale- August 27. So, if you want to rep. your “house” or take a seat in the Red Keep- act fast.

Half Time: Summer ’17

Summer is half way over and it’s been quite eventful. Take a look at my photo gallery to get the picture.

New to N.O.L.A.

My first visit to New Orleans last month explained why people have found reasons to go back. After the latest girls trip with my besties, I’m pretty sure I’ll find a a reason to venture back to ‘NOLA.’ The number one reason? FOOD! Not a surprise right? Most people will tell you how great the food is in this southern city, but you really can’t appreciate it until you experience it for yourself. I can’t say that I was disappointed in not one dish – there were many. With all the restaurants to choose from, it’s hard Β to decide which to try in a small amount of time. Let’s not forget ‘speciality beverages.’Β How could I go to NOLA and not try a Hurricane?! Trust me when I say, one was enough.

From live bands in the French Quarter to the infamous bustling on Bourbon Street, New Orleans is a stateside visit that has enough excitement during the day or night.
