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.
