Always a line out the door at Georgetown Cupcake
We couldn't possibly leave from our trip to DC without stopping for the infamous Georgetown Cupcakes.
We had dinner in Georgetown on our last night in town, but decided we would wait and get the cupcakes 'later' since there was such a long line after we ate. Yes, after 2 glasses of wine at dinner, I was too lazy to stand in line for dessert. So, on our way out of town the next morning, we decided to swing by and grab a box of cupcakes for the long ride home. By 'swinging by,' our brilliant minds were thinking it would be quick, as in drive-thru quick. After driving around for a good 1/2 hour, looking for a parking spot, we decided that I would drop off Rae so she could wait in line to get some of these sweet treats, while I drove around the block 30 times, until she was cashed out and I could pick her back up.
Moral of the story: Although these cupcakes may not be the best in the WORLD, we still recommend treating yourself! AND, when visiting Georgetown, GET A RIDE! Take a cab from your hotel, so you don't drive yourself to drink over the search for a parking spot! The residential streets that surround the 'main drag' do not allow parking without a permit, although I did enjoy sight-seeing the over-priced historic "row houses."
Common sense tip: If it is over 90 degrees and you have a 6 hour drive in the car before you can refrigerate your cupcakes, don't be disappointed when they are a melted mess by the time you get home.
