Sometimes you wake up and realize you need to go see a friend. This time that friend lived in Alexandria just outside of Washington DC. I had some time on my own to explore Oldtown, get my mom some bolivian goodies, and catch up with some people I haven't seen in what feels like a lifetime while consuming all of the food. All of it. :)
Killer E.S.P. my new favorite place in Oldtown. I bought a total of 6 saltenas in 3 days from here. No regrets. Definitely stop by this place next time you're near Alexandria.
Potomac Bead Company has 3 floors of beans and plenty of people to help you find your way around. Best bead selection I've ever seen.
Being in D.C. means stopping by the latino grocery and picking up all the bolivian treats that aren't available in Atlanta. Bestway Supermercado will take care of you.
Fibre Space is this super cute yarn supply that also offers classes and every type of yarn you need. Oldtown definitely caters to the crafty lady.
Beware! You will eat all the cupcakes and cookies, and you will enjoy it. See: Alexandria Cupcakes.
The grand finale of the food olympics we decided to have on a rainy Saturday in Alexandria.
