Wineries that will ship?

I want to send a gift to someone and would love to have it come from a VA winery but an admittedly half baked search didn't yield any obvious candidates. I realize there are limitations of where wineries can ship from/to SO leaving that aside - does anyone have a 'go to' recommendation from Virginia or some other wine producing state? Thanks

Recs for multi-gen family friendly restaurant near Capitol

Thank you - these are all great ideas and all new to me. Will report back.

Recs for multi-gen family friendly restaurant near Capitol

Best friend from grade school in town with her kids (7 and 9 ish?) and parents and husband. Looking for a few options for budget friendly and adventurous eating on Capital Hill or nearby. Preference for Ethiopian or Moroccan has been expressed. I was also thinking about something like Banana Leaves (if they're still around). Will be eating around 5 on a Friday night so need to avoid watering holes. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Bar in Dupont Circle where you can hear each other talk

Thank you all! Some were on my list and some were not. I am drawn to the bar in [hotel, restaurant] suggestion.

Bar in Dupont Circle where you can hear each other talk

Obviously lots of places to meet for a drink in the Dupont Circle area but I'm looking for one where we can actually hear each other talk and won't necessarily have to stand. Any suggestions? Doesn't need to be fancy, not worried about prices or quality of beverages/cocktails. Thanks

Midrange "interesting" dinner

If you like a quieter atmosphere you might be interested in Nage - just to the east of Dupont circle. Its in a hotel (marriott?) so tends to get mostly business travelers but I've taken several parties there over the last few months and it seems to satisfy. definitely in your price range. curious to hear what others think.
