1. Amsterdam Falafelshop (Adams Morgan)

A WONDERFUL reader suggested that we check out Amsterdam Falafelshop after my restaurant meltdown last week. Sorry, guys- I needed some restaurant inspiration after going to two dining duds IN A ROW. This place has received an overwhelming amount of good reviews and has an equally impressive “fix-in’s” bar to cater your falafel to exactly what your taste buds are looking for. It’s super cheap and super delicious. GO FOR IT!

2. Elephant and Castle (Foggy Bottom)

Well, I now know where the dudes of DC congregate after work: Elephant and Castle. Yesterday, my roommate and I were in the mood for some serious pub food and she suggested we hit up Elephant and Castle. I had never been there before, so naturally I was totally ready to rock. Upon entering, I immediately noticed that the place was PACKED with happy-go-lucky Washingtonians enjoying a drink and some grub. The vibe was excellent and exactly what I was looking for. The prices are totally reasonable, the menu has a lovely British flair, and the restaurant is a standard pub with all the bells and whistles…like a huge bar. Cheerio, old chap. I’m going back and you should too.

*Tip: Get the potato skins. Seriously, when was the last time you had some good ‘ol potato skins?

3. Movie of the Week: Factory Girl

To those of you who share any form of appreciation for the 60s, this is the film for you. I have been going through this random 60s inspiration funk and have been reading up on Edie Sedgwick (60s It Girl before Twiggy was even a thought). I found this film on iTunes starring Sienna Miller as Edie Sedgwick and I figured-why not? I stayed up until 4 am watching and enjoyed every second. The film narrates Sedgwick’s life from a rich, but lovely and troubled student to Andy Warhol’s “superstar” and the turmoil she later endures due to substance abuse and overall emotional destruction. It is superb.
