Fall in Love with Virginia Wineries
This Metro-accessible intimate winery experience is tailored to fit you! From a curated list of wonderful wineries, we will visit two in Virginia's picturesque Wine Country - on the relaxing drive though the verdant and colorful Virginia countryside, we'll get to know each other a bit and you'll learn some of the history and backstories of Virginia wine - at each winery, you'll taste several award-winning red, white, and rose wines - following each tasting, we will sit, relax, and enjoy a selection of seasonal wine-friendly snacks often in a beautiful outdoor setting. Plan to stay at each winery for about 1-1.5hrs, with an approx 4-5hr total trip time (including travel time). The day trip is perfect for solo travellers, couples, and small groups - it's meant to be a intimate day with a personal tasting in the beautiful Virginia Piedmont. The Experience can be up to 4 Guest, so there is a chance if you are a solo traveller or a couple, additional wine lovers may join! I'm happy to send you my information PDF so you'll have an idea of the curated wineries, and you can do research on your own to make your Experience the best it can be. While I'm a pet-lover, many wineries do not allow dogs in their tasting rooms - I cannot accommodate anyone who wants to bring their pet. There is limited flexibility with start and end times due to pandemic restrictions.
Bracelet making in 100-year-old building
We will begin with a peek in the Boutique, featuring jewelry handcrafted by award-winning US artists, and a behind-the-scenes look at my working jewelry studio. I will also share some history of my 1890 building, including a copy of the handwritten deed to the original house. In the workshop you will use a combination of specialized jeweler's hand tools (the same that were used to make jewelry in the 19th century) and modern equipment to make your bracelet. First, you will hammer steel letter stamps to impress inspirational words, phrases, and designs of your choice onto a copper strip. Then, you will form the strip into a cuff bracelet with hammers and steel tools, oxidize (blacken) the metal, and polish to your desired finish. You will go home with a meaningful piece of jewelry that you created with your own hands. We limit the workshop to four students to guarantee lots of personal instruction, as well as the opportunity to get to know your classmates. You can relax and enjoy a glass of wine. Other things to note Our studio workstations are separated by plexiglass barriers. Hand sanitizer, masks, and disposable smocks are available. Unfortunately, our Victorian-era building is not fully accessible to the handicapped.

Discover the musical heritage of U Street --aka Black Broadway-- from jazz to hip hop to punk to go go.

You will climb steps and open doors into areas where the public is not normally granted access, be shown unique vantage points to view and photograph the station, gain up-close looks at the magnificent details and ornamentation of the station, as well as learn what is being done today to preserve Union Station for years to come.

All participants will receive a complimentary Union Station tote bag and a coffee table book on the history of the station.
Taste of Georgetown: Food & History!
We'll meet at the first restaurant stop and you'll learn a little more about what to expect from your tour experience. We want to make sure that you have fun, learn a few new things, and end up pleasantly full by the end of your tour. Sample Southern comfort food in a Prohibition-era bar where John F. Kennedy proposed to Jackie Bouvier, sip tea near a canal once used to transport goods to the West, and taste socially-conscious street food that helps feed refugees. Once a thriving port town, Georgetown is DC’s oldest neighborhood and still reveals glimpses of mule-drawn boats and flour mills. Discover Georgetown’s cosmopolitan past, where people from every continent and many religions lived together and built an eclectic culinary community. More than just a premier shopping destination, Georgetown has a delicious and culturally-diverse history that might surprise you. Other things to note The tour goes out in rain or shine so dress appropriately. A potion of your ticket will be donated back to help feed a local in need through our partnership with Bread for the City. Allergies or dietary restrictions? We try our best to accommodate you.

White House with former Kennedy staffer
This is a walking and history tour that walks the complete outside circumference of the gated portion of the White House. Prior to 09/11, as a former White House staffer, I could simply show my ID and take visitors in for a tour. That perk evaporated on 09/12/2001, and inside tours must be requested through a member of Congress. An external, walking tour is the next best thing to a tour inside, with my sharing features of major rooms in the White House, the West Wing, and the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, where my office was when I worked at the White House. In addition to the history of the building and stories about some of its occupants, you get the perspective of a former White House staffer who worked for two US presidents and on the campaigns of two candidates who did not win the presidency. I have met every president who has served during my lifetime, from FDR through the current president. The meet place is outside the White House Visitor Center, on Pennsylvania Avenue, between 14th and 15th Streets, NW. The walk begins by passing through the recently dedicated National World War I Memorial, and proceeds past the Sherman Monument to the Ellipse on the side of the White House, with stories, photographs, and opportunities for questions. Continuing toward the official front of the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, we pass the first headquarters of the America

Stops include the DC War Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, World War II Memorial, the Washington Monument, the White House and the US Capitol Building, all by moonlight! Along the tour I will share startling, inspiring, and memorable stories about the people, controversies, and historical impact embodied in each memorial, as well as information about the architecture. The memorials will come to life as historical facts are blended with with pop culture, current events, social movements, local knowledge, and even a ghost story or two! You will find that there is secret symbolism, meaning, culture, and poetry in every structure. We will also stop for photo opportunities, questions, and exploration at each location. *Tours are 2-2.5 hours long depending on group size.
