JOHN STIRES & BRIAN LEVENTHAL
WHO: Cofounders of District Winery. DRINK UP: Stires: “I love the hotel-lobby-bar-inspired vibe with enjoyable wines and cocktails at Truxton Inn (251 Florida Ave. NW, 202-733-4952; truxtoninndc.com).” Leventhal: “Anxo (300 Florida Ave. NW, 202-986-3795; anxo.com) transports you to northern Spain with authentic pintxos and great cider. They just opened DC’s first cider production facility and will begin serving their own soon!” GET OUTSIDE: Stires: “Yards Park (355 Water St. SE, 202-465-7080; capitolriverfront.org) has something for everyone: open space, a water park, river views, and a cool breeze.” Leventhal: “The Mt. Vernon Trail (nps.gov) offers 17 miles of beautiful running and biking trails overlooking the Potomac, and it’s so close to the city!” MOMENTS OF REFLECTION: Stires: “Open until 7 pm on weekdays, the National Portrait Gallery (8th St. at F St. NW, 202-633-8300; npg.si.edu) is a great place to grab some culture after work. Yoga District (various locations, yogadistrict.com) has all styles and costs $12 per session.” District Winery is located at 385 Water St. SE, 202-484-9210; districtwinery.com.
