Coffee & Reading the morning paper

  • [Local DC News, Friday] Dolcezza shared: “We are THRILLED to officially share the news that our City Center, Bethesda, Dupont, and Fairfax locations will all be STAYING OPEN FOR GOOD.  To celebrate the resurrection of our shops, we are giving away a free small gelato of our exclusive, limited edition CHOCOTORTA flavor at all of our stores on March 19, almost exactly one year after so many small businesses in the city were ordered to close. Chocotorta is a supremely delicious cake layered with dulce de leche, cream cheese, chocolate cookies, and coffee that is traditionally found on the tables at celebrations in Argentina.”
  • [Local DC News, Saturday] Un Je Ne Sais Quoi is celebrating its 5-year anniversary on the 20th! “Join us for special tastings and a chance to win French goodies (and our brand new tote bag and mug). 5 winners will be designated at the end of the day!”
  • [Local DC News] Blue Bottle reopened their Union Station cafe on Monday, March 15th!
  • [Spring is here!] Sat March 20th is the “vernal equinox, which signals the start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. With the first season of 2021 coming to a close, we have an opportunity to bring forth our invigorated spirit for life.” What will you do to celebrate spring?

Quote for the weekend

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be a reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” 

Lao Tzu
