Last week we posted Part One of our Twitter party. Below, we have our #WISHMoveIn Twitter Party Part Two. All of your questions about WISH Housing are answered below!
Questions About Restaurants:
We’re not even surprised that the Twitter party started off with questions about food! The first question of the night and many more following it was about the great and not so great food in DC!
A: It all depends on where you live. WISH has locations on Capitol Hill and Woodley Park neighborhoods. Most places you should try are in walking distance of each other. Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, and Eastern Market/Barracks Row is full of local DC restaurants.
Q: Are There Starbucks’ within walking distance from your complexes?
A: Most likely- yes! DC has Starbucks all around along with other great local options for breaks and coffee, such as Ebenezers Coffeehouse.
Q: What are great places to eat on or near Capitol Hill?
A: Try Union Pub, 201 Bar, Tortilla Coast, Medium Rare, Bullfeathers, Jack Rose or any restaurant near Eastern Market. They have great happy hour prices!
Q: Where can I find cheap but free food for breakfast?
A: Brunch is huge in DC. There are so many places that offer unlimited drinks with their brunch menu! Be sure to make a reservation though to save a spot because the restaurants fill up fast on Sundays!
What about cooking your own food? Where are the closest grocery stores? And how are you supposed to get groceries if you don’t have a car to put them in.? We’re glad that you asked!
A: Peapod Delivers is an excellent service to take advantage of groceries delivered straight to your door! They even sometimes have a deal for first time users! Another option to also consider is Safeway. They also have a delivery service on their website! The last thing, you could also do is Uber home from the grocery store or invest in some sturdy canvas bags to carry your load.
Questions About Things To Do:
WISH holds an event for residents once a week! There is always free food and a great time to meet and network with other residents, guest speakers, and panelist. This summer we have a jammed packed schedule including career night, a midnight monument tour, a Nationals Baseball game and so much more.

There were many questions about what to do in DC. Here are some of our favorites ones!
