I would venture to say the most popular Sunday brunch spot for the D.C. social set is Peacock Cafe in Georgetown (before heading down to the waterfront for a relaxing aftrenoon by the water). Even getting to Peacock super early can’t guarantee you a seat, but the conversations to be overheard are worth the wait. Today’s gossip… what went down at yesterday’s Virginia Gold Cup races.
Before our big brunch, Elle and I found a new shopping treasure! It’s probably only new to us – since Fresh has been across from Dean and Deluca for some 5 years – but the 2 for $99 deal (good for dresses AND bags!!) got us pretty excited.
After brunch, we waited in the longest line I’ve ever seen… for a cupcake! We’ve heard so much ranting and raving about the Georgetown Cupcake, I finally had to try one (or four!) for myself. I did predict that designer cupcakes would be a new trend, but I wasn’t prepared for this! I’m telling you, it’s better than New York’s Magnolia. I am reserving judgement on calling it the best cupcake, however, because I have yet to try my girlfriend Paola Domenge’s creations at Couture Cupcakes.
Though I never made it to the waterfront (I had a BBQ in Virginia), Sunday Funday was a mission accomplished.
First, Paola’s Couture Cupcakes are excellent! Second, speaking of sweetness, Kate, you looked tremendous on the runway last night as “Ms. Sweet Charity”, congrats, you were so just delicious 🙂 Pamela
