Celebrate Macaron Day in Washington, DC!
It’s Macaron Day!!! Indulge your sweet tooth at some of my favourite spots in the city. The Sweet Lobby on Capitol Hill got some national attention in February for winning Cupcake Wars but it’s their macarons that always catch my attention. Visit their boutique today for a free treat and buy more while you’re there. 25% of today’s macarons sales will benefit a local organization promoting science education for children. Tout de Sweet in Bethesda (read my initial thoughts about this cute little patisserie) is also getting into the holiday spirit with limited quantities of free macarons. Just mention that you’re celebrating macaron day! They will also be donating 25% of additional macarons sales today to the Make a Wish Foundation so you don’t have to fell too guilty if you pick up a whole box!! Finally, DC Patisserie has created a special cherry flavour for the occasion (and to a mark the beginning of the Cherry Blossoms season), which will be available at Seasonal Pantry between 6-8PM.
Today’s definitely not-so-sad definitely not desk lunch is fish and chips and a @HopeBeerDublin local IPA at @CrabbyJos_Howth in Howth Ireland. Hiked the 7.5 miles Bog of Frogs loop beforehand so i’m starving ;-)
