How the Grinch Stole Halloween
Hope you enjoyed your extra hour of sleep today! DCers usually overreact to any shift in their daily commute, whether a sprinkle of rain or snow or the sun setting early at 5 pm, so tomorrow’s drive home should be interesting.
I watched Scream and stayed inside for Halloween. The rain and all the crowds…Boo, humbug! The only DC Halloween event that I’ve done twice now is walked through Georgetown in costume. I recommend doing this at least once. Main thoroughfares are shut down to allow the revelers to revel somewhat safely, and some people get really creative with their costumes. While the premise of this blog is to fully experience my hometown, I can live without first hand experience of some local mayhem like the hugely popular Nightmare on M Street bar crawl. I don’t desire to pay $20 for the opportunity to stand in line outside of a bar for a $2 Coors Light special.
Not convinced, DC.
Still, I managed to get in the holiday spirit enough to indulge in treats. 🙂
I tried Lavender Moon Cupcakery in Old Town. It was embarrassing: I rarely carry cash and learned that they don’t accept credit card after the shop girl had wrapped up my cupcakes. Even though I only had a few dollars to pay for 1-and-2/3 cupcakes, she kindly gave me all of them anyway. Mmmm!
DC joined the cupcake trend a bit late, but it’s capitalizing in full force now. My favorite dealers in the area are, in order:
One thing I really look forward to around here is the changing leaves and sense of autumn. We experience all four seasons, albeit summer and winter hog the majority of the year. Not all major cities can claim that(Los Angeles, I’m talking to you). Some fall colors for your viewing pleasure:
