Rayhart = THIS Wednesday, April 29th!

Image
Art speaks volumes. I am sure you have heard that a million times before. But every single time I look at one of Rayhart's piece, that quote always comes to mind.


Stillness, chance, peace, love and connection are all emotions that resonate with me when I have the opportunity to see Ray's work in person.

See what emotions Rayhart's work stirs up in you, THIS WEDNESDAY, April 29th.

Cardinal Chocolate - April 29th!

If you are anything like us, you know there is more to  the chocolate world than Hershey bars and Cadbury Easter eggs. Not that there is anything wrong with them, but there is so much better out there.
Take Cardinal Chocolates for example. Gourmet chocolate that is hand-crafted right in DC area? That's what I'm talking about!

Why not get your chocolate fix during lunch and help support your local artisans at the same time? Win. Win.

Cardnial Chocolate will join us with all sorts of chocolate treats THIS WEDNESDAY - OPENING DAY, APRIL 29th!
