Review: Delish beer and inexplicable swooning at The Public Option!

The hubs and I checked out The Public Option in Langdon, NE DC, a while back and were smitten with what we’d discovered:  a cozy, one-room parlor with eclectic seating and an owner who invited us up to the bar for an entertaining overview of the many craft beers he had on tap. (Disclaimer:  While this place is not in the area of Route 1 that I typically cover, it's a stone's throw from Mt. Rainier and such a good, low-fi, high-fun spot for folks considering a date-night/girl-night/guy's night/any time of day away from the kids that I thought I'd share on my blog.)

Rise + Rhyme at Hyattsville's Busboys and Poets!

Headed down to Busboys and Poets in Hyattsville this morning to do some movin' and groovin' with my lil lady at Rise + Rhyme.  Every Monday morning from 9:30 - 11:00 a.m, this fun, weekly program promises to get the kiddos (usually best for those 5 years old and younger though any age welcomed) moving and entertained with interactive storytelling and musical performances.  This morning's featured performer, Jessica "Culture Queen" Smith and her awesome, gold glittery shoes (actually, everything about her - visually and performance-wise, was super) captured our attention with catchy, original tunes that were super easy to sing along to and whose empowering, self-affirming messages were lovely to hear and recite.
