The beat on Brookland, Bloomingdale, Shaw and other must-visit enclaves


How to Get There and Where to Eat: Located about a 10-minute walk east of the Shaw Metro stop (or a quick Uber ride away), Bloomingdale is peppered with off-the-grid culinary attractions – from date-night favorite, The Red Hen, and laid back Big Bear Cafe to DCity Smokehouse – the closest thing DC has to Freddie’s BBQ from House of Cards.
Steal the Show: Grab a drink at one of the city’s most off-the-wall bars, Showtime. Featuring an 82-year-old grandmother who dotes on everyone with her keyboard skills, the in-house Sunday night funk band, Granny and the Boys, has quickly found a cult following.
Healthy Pursuits: On Sunday’s, local residents peruse the stalls of the Bloomingdale Farmers Market (Ends Nov. 22). Voluntourists should check the schedule at Common Good City Farm, which promotes healthy eating through urban community agriculture.
