Willie's Brew and Que

Willie's Brew and Que is a BBQ restaurant and sports bar located in Yards Park, a short walk from Nationals Park. Willie's focuses on the art of low and slow barbecue cooking with charbroilers and custom-made smokers to churn out authentic North Carolina barbecue and other items with influences from across the country. The lively sports atmosphere is a favorite for local alumni groups - but I would steer clear.  Closest Metro is Navy Yard.

Dacha Beer Garden

Dacha Beer Garden located in the Shaw neighborhood offers an inviting smoke-free garden setting with a carefully curated selection of world-class German, Belgian, and American craft beers along with wines, meads, ciders and other refreshments. The food menu gets its inspiration from traditional Bavarian beer gardens – hardy and tasty, but falls short with execution.  Closest Metro is Dupont Circle.

Travels to Sicily, Italy

Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, is just off the toe of Italy's boot. It has been a crossroads of cultures for 3,000 years, a history reflected in its diverse architecture, cuisine and ancient ruins. Palermo, the capital, offers colorful street life, bustling markets and Byzantine mosaics at the Cappella Palatina.  From Naples, we flew to Palermo to continue our Italian adventure along the Western coast of Sicily.
