  1. We don't make a big deal about sweets anymore, for health reasons, concentrate more on meat and vegetables. In addition to the traditional roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, roasted root vegetables, mashed potatoes, g,reen beans and salad, I think we'll smoke a goose. My husband's family had a tradition of a roast goose but every time we tried it, it was like a fat bomb went off in the oven. But googling about, it seems like smoking a goose would drain the fat slowly. Hmmm. Maybe also smoke a duck? How about you? What are you up to?
  2. Ice and other stuff at Gaylord National Harbor. I made brunch plans for this weekend at National Harbor but have not pulled the trigger on tickets for Ice. Too damn expensive. I went years ago and thought it was fun for maybe 30 minutes at the most. Lightup Fest at One Loudoun. I drove past it on the way to Charles Town. Not sure whether the food or acrobatic shows are good. Light installation art in Georgetown. I'm taking the kids this weekend. ZooLights. We go every year. The lights don't change and the food around the area just isn't all that good. May pass this ye
  3. I know it's just shy of Thanksgiving but could y'all chime in where one could go for a festive atmosphere to dine on Christmas Day? Looking for places that are richly saturated with Christmas decor, and lights. The brighter the better. I know several families that will be heading to the District, as well as Baltimore, to celebrate Christmas and are looking for something spectacular! I am thinking that a bunch of hotels will be serving dinner on Christmas, but since I have not lived in the District for some time, I am out of the loop. Food is a factor, but honestly I am just looking for some
  4. I should have posted this long before. Given the current political climate, I know there are people who are no longer comfortable at their family gatherings. Might people with extra space/food be interested in getting matched up with members with similar political and food leanings? Some of the most stress free holiday meals I've attended were potlucks with friends. We can probably squeeze 2 in for Thanksgiving, but since we're Jewish, we're happy to host for an alternative Xmas day dinner if people are interested. Ours is a non-smoking, meat-eating cat-free home, with extremel
  5. Thank you to all our members, and Merry Christmas to everyone. If anyone is alone, sick, or just plain lonely today, please write me, either via PM, or by emailing donrockwell@dcdining.com. If you're in crisis, please call me at (202) 630-DINE, and leave a message - I'll call you back as soon as I possibly can. You're never alone as long as I'm here. "Love" can have many connotations, and I want you all to know that I love you very much, and for those of you who are suffering today - for whatever reason - I would be honored to have the chance to help you. Cheers, Rocks
  6. Recommendations for dining on Christmas Day in Old Town? Have been unsatisfied with everything apart from Charthouse past years.
  7. I really enjoyed the conversation around pumpkin beers that we have had for the past few months, and I thought we could just carry this into the new line of seasonal beers, the Christmas Ale. My first Christmas Ale was probably Delirium Noel, and as opposed to Pumpkin beers, I was instantly in love with the style. It was malty and spicy, and was somehow a perfect drink on a cold night. This was close to fifteen years ago, yet I still get excited when the Christmas beers start trickling onto the shelves. I went to Total Wine this week to put together my first Xmas beer collection, and here
  8. Unlike Thanksgiving, which is always a foodie ordeal, Christmas is generally relatively low key. Younger son Nick's birthday is on the 23rd, we always have a feast Christmas eve, so by the time Christmas Day rolls around we are kind of partied out. This year, even more so, because younger son is dating a woman whose family is in Charlottesville, so they will celebrate Christmas here on Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day in C'ville. Today, Christmas Eve, roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes, gravy, and braised little onions, the family version of old reliable. Some kind of green v
  9. Anyone know of a good list of what restaurants and bars are open Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? For instance, I know the Passenger is closed Christmas Eve, but Hogo and Mockingbird Hill (for instance) will be open, and on Christmas Day Ragtime opens at 8 PM. This year I'm sans family for the most part over those two days (parents are visiting over the weekend, brother will be at in-laws Xmas day, and I'm working the 24th and the 26th) so I'm hoping to get out of the house and have some fun. (To be honest, I'm quite looking forward to it.) EDIT TO ADD: I do know of Washingtonian's bru
  10. On December 6 - 7, 2013, The Campagna Center will hold the 43rd Annual Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend and Parade, in partnership with The Saint Andrew's Society of Washington, D.C. and the City of Alexandria. A tradition that honors Alexandria's rich Scottish heritage with a variety of activities to ring in the holiday season, the Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend generates much-needed financial support for our programs. The event is consistently ranked by the Southeast Tourism Society as one of the top 20 events in the South and regularly draws nearly 30,000 attendees. Activities include:
