Uncle Chip’s, Funky Cheese (w/pop rocks!), and a Freak Show- A Day in the DMV

Creamed Butter Topped with Pop Rocks & a Sandwich Paying Homage to Gandolfini

I was supposed to do this blog post over a week ago.  I got a little hung up trying to think of ways to make the post cheeky and clever.  I read my initial post and the first part was over 3 paragraphs long.  Then I thought “I don’t need 3 paragraphs just to tell you guys that I have found the best damned (yes I cussed- I know I rarely do but sometimes you just have to) cookies in the entire DMV!”.  I just need to say exactly that.  I was driving down North Capitol Street headed to dinner on Capitol Hill when I saw a very awkward turquoise colored row house with the biggest freaking “COOKIE” sign I have ever seen.  With a sign that big I assumed the cookies had to be ridiculously delicious or else I would petition to have that sign removed.  However the sign must remain.  For every cookie lover needs to see it.  The cookies offered by Uncle Chip’s are insanely delicious. They are so large I didn’t get to try them all but I did try the oatmeal raisin and double chocolate chip.  I had to force myself not to eat them all so I could share with my dinner date!  Uncle Chip’s boasts of using natural whole ingredients but there is a secret ingredient they won’t share.  I certainly hope it isn’t crack.  It tastes like it could be but that would be morally irresponsible on their part. They also have traditional chocolate chip, peanut butter, and chocolate dipped short bread cookies.  They also have an array of mouth watering deli sandwiches- my 2 favorite:

RIP James Gandolfini

Red Onion, Oil & Vinegar, Mayo and Hot Cherry Pepper Spread

Saigon Sam
Pulled Pork, Carrot, Cilantro, Spicy Peanut Sauce

Make sure you stop in  1514 North Capitol Street, NW

My next stop was to an old sexy favorite  Sonoma- This is one of my faves as I am a big fan of ambience- I know that the “IN” crowd is always in the H Street Corridor and all up 14th Street, but sometimes you just want to unwind in a cool calm sexy venue with sexy murmurs (I’m not sure if you’re picking up what I am putting down but I know what I mean lol).  And not only that but they serve one of my new favorite Cabernets “The Freak Show” by Michael David Winery (thanks for putting me on to this Lori).

Sonoma is located at 223 Pennsylvania Ave, SE

Our last stop was by happenstance-  While window shopping we saw Sona Creamery.  I love anything with the word “creamery”.  This place is heaven for wine and cheese lovers.  Sona is DC’s FIRST ONSITE CREAMERY.  The staff is not only super knowledgeable- but so very warm and friendly. Almost like they are taking sips of some pinot noir between tables!!!  We decided to partake in a small cheese sampling plate that consisted of some of the most flagrantly funky cheese ever!! That’s good for the cheese lovers!!! Not only that but we had some butter that was topped with lava salt and get this – pop rocks!!!! Yes the candy you grew up on that set firecrackers off in your mouth. DIVINE.  I was able to get a chenin blanc which many restaurants around here don’t seem to have.  This place is truly a new favorite for me and I cannot wait to get back there and possibly do an event.

Sona Creamery is located at 660 Pennsylvania Ave, SE

  3. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
