FNO FTW!!!

It’s that time of year, and it’s way better than Christmas! Fashion’s Night Out, abbreviated FNO, will be taking the states by storm TONIGHT!!! Sales will be on, refreshments will be had, and smiles will be flashed!

In Georgetown, M St. and Wisconsin Ave. will be littered with shoppers donning champagne in one hand and goodies in another while they peruse the season’s best.  Last year Emily, Alice and I had an amazing time at this event, and I even won a raffle! So grab your girlfriend and shop till you drop!

To help plan your outing in DC tonight, I’ve identified the shops that will be offering some worthy discounts. Those with the stars are where you can fetch a flute of bubbles! For more information, check out www.FNOgeorgetowndc.com

For the Love of Ice Cream!

Because flour is a great binding agent and an excellent food thickener, it is not uncommon to find gluten lurking in many unsuspected food products…even ice cream! So if you have a serious intolerance, it is always better to speak up and ask for the gluten free menu than to quietly suffer the consequences later.

I am in love with Ben and Jerry’s gluten free menu because you can’t possibly feel shortchanged with the ample GF options. I also believe that most scoop shops will do half scoops of two different flavors for the decisionally challenged! Among my favorites are Chunky Monkey, Phish Food and Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz! What are yours?

A shout out to my friends in the northern aspects of the country: Free Greek Frozen Yogurt for y’all if you feel like tweeting (@benjerrystruck) and chasing the Ben and Jerry’s truck! For those who are geographically limited, check out my post on home-made frozen yogurt!
