DC

Five Places to Indulge your Sweet Tooth

Eating dessert is one of my favorite past-times, especially when it’s a mid day snack. As a reformed fitness fanatic you won’t find me counting calories but for the diet minded I say to you, if you’re in DC you’ll probably walk these calories off in short order.  This is by no means an all inclusive list, simply five places I find myself organizing my outings and play dates around.
