I was in Washington DC last week to meet with some of The SCOUT Guide editors
Thought that I would mention a few stops along the way
Directly over The Key Bridge in Georgetown
insider secret….not need to wait in line at Georgetown Cupcakes….these cupcakes are the real deal.
3 sisters…..that love to make pies
Georgetown Pie Sisters. Alli, Bear and Cat Blakely created the Pie Sisters of Georgetown in the fall of 2010. The three tall sisters from Great Falls, VA have been baking pie for as long as they can remember. Homemade pies are and have always been a staple in their family tradition. They grew up canning peaches and putting up fresh fruit pies, like their mother, which always brought family and friends together.
I was super excited to see a Marcus Wiley Belt at
a great men AND WOMEN's shop.
a super fun store FILLED with gems
Margaret is from Charlottesville and recently opened this gallery.
Avery Lawrence: Moving A Tree and Arranging Suitcases
Avery is from Charlottesville…now lives in NOLA
The exhibition revolves around two films, which are supplemented by drawing, installation, photography and artist-designed wallpaper. Transforming himself to play diverse characters, the artist builds the films’ narratives around tasks, which he uses to trace intimate family histories. He mixes personal memory and mythology to convey ideas of loss, transition, and reinvention.
Here is Avery setting up…..
Super excited about
THE SCOUT GUIDE
we can all enjoy the faces behind these local businesses
enjoy. take a trip to DC.
