A Day in the District: Island Dreaming Edition

Let’s forget about this cold, dreary weather and start dreaming about upcoming warm, spring days. Here is a list of places that are must-visits in the District during your “70 degree and sunny” wishful thinking.

Begin your day at Sole in the City to find the perfect wedge or sandal to show off while on your spring break vacation. From Sam Edelman and Stuart Weitzman to Cole Haan and Kate Spade, you are destined to find your favorite shoe. Not only are fashionable footwear showcased, but trendy accessories also tend to turn customers’ heads in this boutique. Sole in the City’s owners, Betty Copeland and Debbie Black, will help pick out show-stopping pieces fit just for you.

Bennett Galleries is the next go-to on your day in the District. Here you will find beautiful furnishings and artwork for you home. While you are in the mood for spring, a stop here for a pop of color to add to your home is just what you need. Whether you pick out a new piece of furniture or simply just add a throw pillow to your collection, Bennett Galleries will fulfill your springtime design wants.

Only a few blocks down the road is your final stop. This wine dive, Drink, is the crowning end to your day. Get ready for a night with friends to eat, drink and socialize. On the small plates menu, Jerk Chicken will satisfy your island taste.  Along with your Jamaican eats, a sparkling cocktail, Solerno Tango, will complete the night. Drink has multiple other options to quench the thirst and amuse the palate for your friends who aren’t quite on the same page as you in hoping for sunshine.
