Three-day weekends mean more time for romance, and this weekend a presidential itinerary is in order! (Side note: Did you realize how hot young Abe Lincoln was?!)
Lincoln is offering a three-course prix fixe menu including choices like pan-seared rockfish, fried chicken and dumplings and brown butter fudge cake for only $29 per person.
Take a leisurely stroll to Ford’s Theatre a mile away, where as a Lincoln customer, you get 20% discount off all performances. Get a pair of tickets to Necessary Sacrifices ($25-$70), playing through February 18. This drama explores the two documented encounters between Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln during a period of national crisis.
For dinner and a show, that’s as low as $49 per person, plus beverages, tax and gratuity. The foreplay…is free.
