Food Face Off: Milk Bar versus Buttercream Bakeshop

Cookies at Butter Cream Bakeshop

As I’ve mentioned time after time, DC is a foodie paradise. There are so many good eats here that one could go an entire year without eating the same deliciousness twice if they wanted to. The options presented to us by the culinary creatives here can seem overwhelming at times, but that’s why I’m here, to make your life easier by eating everything and telling you all about it.

Recently, I decided to try and find the best cookie in the city. My first stop was Milk Bar. I had been anticipating the coming of Milk Bar to DC for quite some time.   It’s popular in New York and I had heard that their cookies were to die for.

Halfsmoke

Randomly, I found myself getting off the Metro Bus in northwest DC a few blocks from my old office on U Street. I couldn’t have been more than two blocks from my stop before the clouds exploded, pouring down rain, with gusting winds, and bringing a flash flood. It was horrible.

Food Life: Steve Coogan and &pizza

E Street Cinema

Last night, I had the privilege of enjoying my first outing as a member of Yelp’s Beret Cinema Club with E Street Cinema and &pizza. It was a great night out. As a filmophile, it’s always a pleasure to hang out with others who share your love for the art of cinema. Also, who doesn’t love pizza, especially when it’s from &pizza (best pizza on the planet)? Everything about the night was perfect. I had my homegirl Chi-chi with me to share the experience. The other Yelpers in attendance were very friendly and warm. The pizza was uber delicious, as I loaded it up with almost a little of everything they had. And, the movie (although the jokes were a bit off color) kept us laughing out loud time and time again. It was more than anyone could asks for.
