1. The Tombs (Georgetown)
Allow me to introduce you to Georgetown’s underground gem: The Tombs! I came here for the first time last year with a dear friend attending Georgetown University upon her suggestion. The restaurant is literally underground which makes it’s title pretty amusing and the food is good ‘ol traditional American deliciousness. Additionally, if you are of drinking age, there is a full bar that becomes the main social scene of Georgetown late night on the weekends. Don’t miss it. The cute preppy waiters walking around with bow ties are not too bad either.
*Tip: Clyde’s Crab and Artichoke Dip is THE bomb. Eat it.
2. Zengo (Chinatown)
In need of some Latin flavor? Head on over to Zengo in Chinatown. The two-tiered restaurant boasts food with an Asian/Latin fusion, enough Tapas to around, and some of the most delicious entrees and drinks you have ever tasted. Hang out during Happy Hour or schedule a big dinner with pals. Either way, I promise you’ll enjoy yourself.
*Tip: Get the Thai Chicken Empanadas.
3. Movie of the Week: Selena
As an attempt to further procrastinate and not write my history paper, I found myself browsing through the iTunes movie collection when Selena appeared on the screen. For those of you unfamiliar with this 90s classic, Selena is the film debut of Jennifer Lopez as she portrays Tejano music legend Selena Quintanilla. The star was not only famed for her rise to the Tejano charts, but also her English crossover album featuring the hit songs, “Dreaming of You” and “I Could Fall in Love.” In my personal opinion, this is Jennifer’s best film and the movie itself is so heart-wrenching and inspiring, you can’t help but fall in love with it. Give it a try. Selena will win your heart.
*Tip: You can rent Selena off of iTunes for 24 hours for less than $3. Talk about a steal!
