Romantic date night ideas in DC? Husband and I are both in our 30s and could use doing something new honestly. We work from home and are together all the time, I’m kinda out of ideas on how to shake things up. We live in VA, about 20 min out from dc.

Bistro Cacao is a fantastic date night venue. Very romantic, old school Parisian charm. If you’re into wine, you can pick out a special bottle at Schneider’s wine shop (an OG dc wine shop) next door before hand to drink with dinner, for a modest corkage fee. St. Anselm is another great dinner option, with one of the best wine lists in the city and great food. Afterward, you could enjoy a night cap at one of the cocktail spots at Union Market, like Cotton & Reed (whose piña coladas taste like fluffy, delicious pineapple-coconut clouds).

You can also do dinner and a show. Arena Stage is a great theater venue and is just a short walk from the Warf, where dinner and drink options abound.

Finally, you could do dinner and drinks on the H Street corridor. Copy Cat would be a great first stop for a pre-dinner cocktail. After that, you could do dinner at either The Pursuit Wine Bar or Irregardless. Don’t let Pursuit’s “wine bar” title fool you—they have a phenomenal dinner menu, crafted by an outstanding spanish chef. Irregardless just opened. It’s a venture by a husband and wife duo, both former attorneys turned wine and food professionals, bringing a fund and fresh tasting menu to H Street. After dinner, you could do a night cap at a classic dive bar like Little Miss Whisky, or dessert at Dangerously Delicious Pies.

Hope this helps!

Grab pre-din cocktails at Jane Jane, walk over to Le Diplomate for din, and if you’re up for it after, head over to chicken and whiskey for a speakeasy vibe with music.

How do people focus in the office? I'm a first year and I've been mostly wfh since I started and I'm super productive at home - my setup is comfortable, I rarely get interrupted, and I feel like I can stay really focused in my home office.

Our SAs started today, so the firm is making us come in more often. My office set up is so awkward, screens are too small, and I'm constantly getting interrupted. Not to mention the extra time it took to get ready and commute. How do people do this?
