DC suggestions please - Arena Stage vicinity as well as other areas

I've always had such great suggestions from this board. What restaurants would be great for dinner that are handy to Arena Stage?

Also looking for ideas on another evening - I have reservations at Bar Pilar. Thoughts? What is exciting and fun?


ISO romantic post theater options, does not need to be in theater district, atmosphere and ability to get a bite to eat important

The go to place that us theater folk love is Bar Centrale. Google it for a phone number.
It is located above Orso's but there is no sign.
Very small special place s few blocks from The Palace Theater.
Or try The Lambs Club

Cicchetti Crawl in Venice and restaurant advise

What is the best way to experience a chiccetti crawl in Venice?
Is it fun to hire someone to tour you around town for this or is it easy to manage alone?

Also - has anyone been to Al Tovo? Da Fiori? Le Maschere?

thanks for the advice.

An amazing recipe for a good cause, please...

I've had very good luck auctioning off pre-measured sets to bake later - I use mason jars and pre measure flour, sugar etc, add a vanilla bean (or a bottle of vanilla extract) chocolate or butterscotch chips etc. That way it can be used at the purchaser's convenience. Don't forget to include instructions. I've also done this with sugar cookie recipes and included small amounts of fancy sprinkles and colored sugar for decorating.
