Capitol File - - LETTER - MERED­ITH MER­RILL

Yes, June, July, and Au­gust are hot in Wash­ing­ton, DC, but, it’s not al­ways the tem­per­a­ture that’s bring­ing the heat! There are places and events to dis­cover and en­joy that will put a fun siz­zle in your sum­mer, as well.

Out­door en­ter­tain­ment abounds. I per­son­ally can­not wait to see Lionel Richie again while din­ing on a pic­nic blan­ket un­der the stars at Wolf Trap. Jazz in the gar­den at the Na­tional Gallery of Art is a joy to the senses and brings an eclec­tic and fun group to­gether.

Out­door din­ing is a fa­vorite of mine be­cause of the way it trans­ports me, bring­ing another el­e­ment to the senses. A few al­fresco op­tions to check out: the new out­door lounge at the Ritz-Carl­ton Ge­orge­town has a sexy, fun vibe; the pa­tio at the Sala­man­der ho­tel over­look­ing the gor­geous man­i­cured grounds is re­lax­ing and fun; Blue Duck’s pa­tio is sit­u­ated by a freshly main­tained gar­den of herbs and veg­gies; and a ca­sual cock­tail out­doors at Mil­lie’s in Spring Val­ley com­pletes my day or night.

If you do need to es­cape the heat, sum­mer is also meant for week­end get­aways. The Bell­moor Inn and Spa, lo­cated in Re­hoboth Beach, Delaware, al­lows you to en­joy the fun, the sun, and the ocean.

Make the most of the DC swel­ter this sum­mer and you will find some spe­cial ex­pe­ri­ences!
