Adams Morgan Date Nights @ Adams Morgan NEIGHBORHOOD
Feb 23 all-day

Adams Morgan is the best place to go on a date in DC — whether you’re a mom and daughter out for ice cream, a first date, or a married couple celebrating a double-digit anniversary. For eight weeks in February and March, local restaurants and shops are providing discounts and fun packages for every relationship: a date for every love.

Enter to win three amazing “date packages,” including:

  1. The Anniversary Package, including a night at the LINE DC Hotel, drinks during live music at Songbyrd Music House & Record Cafe, and a dinner at Roofer’s Union.
  2. Girls’ Day Out Package: Start with the epic drag brunch at Perry’s Restaurant, then some lingerie shopping (with discounts!) at Le Bustiere Boutique, and a glass of bubbly at Jug & Table.
  3. Popping the question? An elegant dinner at the renowned Mintwood Place, an affogato at Pitango Gelato, and a night at the LINE DC Hotel.

More giveaways will be announced throughout the 8-week period.

Visit www.admodatenights.com to enter the drawing; and receive a discount code to access specials and promotions at dozens of date lineups. Nearly two dozen date packages present the best eats, treats, sweets and activities in Adams Morgan for relationships at every stage — for the first date, the whiskey drinker, the oenophile, the comedy lover, or a full family affair with a stop for cookie dough after a fun-filled afternoon.

 

Adams Morgan is home to more than 240 colorful restaurants and businesses, ranging from uniquely local storefronts to neighborhood-serving retail, and creative fun from comedy to dancing. In 2018, The Washington Post’s Tom Sietsema described the Adams Morgan dining scene as “increasingly delicious,” recommending Tail Up Goat; and Washingtonian featured two Adams Morgan restaurants in its top 25 of the year (Tail Up Goat and Spoken English). Eater DC named Adams Morgan the Best Dining Neighborhood of the Year in 2018, and highlighted dozens of neighborhood spots for live music (Madam’s Organ, Columbia Station, Songbyrd); hottest restaurants (A Rake’s Progress, Lucky Buns, Brothers and Sisters); Korean barbeque (Bul, Muzette and Sakuramen); and much more.
