georgetown cupcake

Inspired by their grandmother—and following their passion—sisters Katherine and Sophie founded Georgetown Cupcake in 2008, in Georgetown.

Recent expansion plans include locations in Bethesda, Boston and Soho—which is the first outside the DC metro area.

Located near CB2 Soho on Mercer Street, all goods are baked on site daily—using stellar ingredients like Madagascar Bourbon vanilla and Valhrona Cocoa powder.

Stars of the TLC series DC Cupcakes, watch for their new book Sweet Celebrations which is scheduled for release in October.

Thanks to cory and ben at CB2 soho—who love their cupcakes!—for this submission and photos.

destination: boston, ma

Day 1: We started our tour of Boston on the Freedom Trail which takes you through the heart—and the oldest—parts of the city. It begins in the Boston Common where swans swim freely and boaters peddle swan-boats across the pond—established in 1634, it’s the oldest public park in the country.

The 2.5 mile walking trail incorporates 16 historically significant sites—including the 325 year old King’s Chapel and burying ground where Paul Revere rests. Other sites include the Massachusetts State House, Faneuil Hall marketplace, Revere’s home, and the USS Constitution.

Day 2: The city is rich with historical architecture, landmarks and amazing seafood—from B&G Oysters in the South End, to The Salty Pig and The Butcher Shop in Beacon Hill.

We successfully managed to walk, eat and drink our way up and down Beacon Hill, through and past the shops on Newberry Street, to finally chill out in the South End.

Day 3: Renting bicycles, via Metro-Boston’s bike sharing system the Hubway, allowed us to get to give our feet a rest and see so much more. We crossed the Charles River into Cambridge to visit Harvard campus—and taste locally brewed CBC beer.

Try as we might to get away from work, we spotted a peekaboo console table as movers delivered furniture. And if the city didn’t have such great sites—Beacon Hill, the South End, the North End—we probably would’ve spent more time on the rooftop garden at the XV Beacon.

sugar & olives

Sugar & Olives is in its third year of serving ‘farm to family’ style, and its tucked away location draws a steady and curious crowd.

The converted factory space sits on a side street in Norwalk, Connecticut, and without a sign or any evidence that it’s a restaurant, it has become a local favorite for private dining, cooking classes and a swanky spot to sit, eat and enjoy some tasty food.

Want to know where your food is from? Just ask and they’ll tell you—or look it up on the iPad menu. Each guest gets one so they can choose their meal, and search for more information as they wish.

Vegetables, fruit, poultry, shellfish, dairy and eggs are gathered from farms within CT, while grains and other items are sourced regionally from the Hudson Valley to Vermont. Sweet and savory as the name Sugar & Olives implies, with a focus on flavor and simplicity, allowing each item to shine.

The sustainable build-out and best practices of this small shop has earned it three stars with the Green Restaurant Association. The efforts to keep a tiny footprint include waste reduction, pre- and post-consumer composting, recycling, a water filtration system with zero plastic water bottles on the premises, and a rain barrel to boot.

Special thanks to jennifer and cristina, store manager west hollywood, for the inside scoop!
