TIP: Traveling to Washington DC and love music & food?
I’ve lived & worked in the DC area for nearly 15 years. She offered three tips, and she says, you have to visit three different venues:
1. If you like eclectic live music (Americana, bluegrass, country, rock), head to Hill Country Barbecue Market in the Penn Quarter neighborhood of DC. In addition to serving delicious TX-style barbecue, they offer live music 5 nights a week (most shows have no cover). Wednesday nights are their weekly Rock n Twang Live Band Karaoke night, so if you’ve ever wanted to be the lead singer fronting a live band, here’s your chance!
Hill Country’s website is: www.hillcountrywdc.com.
2. Leave DC and head out to George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate & Gardens. There’s an awesome interactive museum on the grounds that put the life of the country’s 1st President into new perspective. Bourbon/whiskey lovers will also enjoy the grounds, and there are some neat activities for kids.
More can be found at: www.mountvernon.org.
3. Finally, take a trip out to the National Air & Space Museum’s Stephen F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Dulles Airport which is home to a retired full-sized Concord jet and the space ship Enterprise (which was the prototype for the fleet of shuttles that were just grounded). Udvar-Hazy also will be the new home of the Discovery starting in spring 2012.

Thanks for the tips, Mel
