Hey interns, work downtown? Been eyeing that cute intern? Want to see what he/she’s like outside those cubicle walls? Here’s an idea that’ll get you both out on the town without cleaning out your wallet.
- On any Monday night between now and August, head to Aria Trattoria by 4 pm.
- Grab a spot on their expansive patio and whet your…er, whistle with $3 Anheuser-Busch drafts, $4 rail drinks, or $5 house wines as you gaze dreamily into each other’s eyes.
- At 6 pm, get those dreamy eyes on over to the National Theatre for one of the approximately 1,500 free tickets to a classic film. Ticket distribution starts at 6 pm, and the film starts at 6:30 pm. Right now, it’s any one of Burt Lancaster’s famous flicks like “From Here to Eternity,” where the two of you can hold hands in the dark and swoon to the love scenes.
Total cost? As low as $6 for two. Fade to black. The end.
1969-2014. As a child, Kelly was founder and president for life of the “Clean Plate Club.” Later, in college, she ate pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner for 6 days straight. Third-generation Washingtonian Kelly caught, cleaned and cooked her own seafood. She saw centers–convention, capital, shopping–rise and fall. And she could probably tell you what restaurant “used to be here,” but she never met the President. This refined (finicky?) fed found the ways and means to fine dine with a good wine.
