Equinox DC - The Vegan Brunch You Need to Try

Equinox is an elegant, upscale restaurant focusing on New American food and is really a classic in DC.  They are well known for their focus on vegetable dishes as well, so I was super excited to try their popular Sunday vegan brunch buffet.

Vegan brunch is hard to come by in the city, so I was kinda interested to check out a spot that broke away from the traditional brunch items. Equinox’s brunch definitely has some traditional items, but also included lots of unexpected twists and turns that were interesting and delicious.

Checking In: The Jefferson Hotel, Richmond

The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond is a historic, grand property that has been around since 1895 and played host to many celebrities, Presidents, and more. The hotel went through an extensive renovation earlier this year and reopened completely this summer. Kris and I stayed there when we visited Richmond a few weeks back, and WOW. We knew it would be incredible, because we heard so much about it from friends and from just the history of it, but it was much more than we expected, really.

A spirited visit to the Murlarkey Distillery

Murlarkey Distilled Spirits opened in Bristow, Virginia in January of 2016. Within a year and a half, they have managed to make quite a name for themselves and have won a number of awards. So a few weeks back, I jumped at the opportunity to head out to their distillery for a tour and tasting. There is something fun about taking a trip to a distillery in general, but the experience at Murlarkey is even more delightful.
