More fun: delicious dishes down below
Locals flock to 14th Street NW’s 2 Birds, 1 Stone, where expertly mixed drinks pair with delicious Asian dishes from Doi Moi (above) upstairs. Downtown, The Hamilton Live serves up dinner, plus shows in its basementlevel music hall, starring popular cover bands and top acts, like this month’s Spyro Gyra (Aug. 17). For a hit of nostalgia, head over to Georgetown’s The Tombs, which was the inspiration for the titular bar in the classic 1980s flick “St. Elmo’s Fire” and serves pub fare and beers.
