Some Quirky Things

Every city has unique things about it. DC is no different. Scroll down to enjoy a few of those things that DC docents enjoy. 

Teaism and so Much More.

Going to Teaism is always a fun respite from the hustle and bustle of D.C. says Susan W. a docent at the National Museum for Women in the Arts. The tea here is good but it is their menu that really makes Teaism special. They have bento boxes, curries, and sandwiches with an Asian bent.  It's also a great breakfast or brunch stop. Don't miss their salty oat cookies which are delicious with tea or to snack on later. There are four locations with two walking distance from the Mayflower and one just down 8th Street from the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The one near SAAM would be a great place to go with a crowd on Friday night as they have a large seating area in the basement and could easily accommodate a large group.

Morning News Show.

Betsy H. from Smithsonian American Art Museum says that when she travels she likes to sip her morning coffee while watching what the locals watch to get traffic, weather and news. In DC, she enjoys CBS’ “Get Up DC” which runs from 6am to 7am weekdays. It’s informative and funny and everyday they run a “most DC thing” segment which often pokes fun at the Metro system, the way we drive in DC or our newscooter rental programs.
