Each week, Cultural Tourism DC asks well-known Washingtonians to list their favorite attractions or events.

This week’s list comes from Sam Edelstein, a Communications Associate in New Media at Cultural Tourism DC. Here’s a sample of some of his picks:

1) Jazz in the Sculpture Garden – Aside from it being the location of the first date with my now wife, this is a perfect place to wind down after a week of work. Every Friday during the summer, enjoy jazz, art, people-watching, and a couple of drinks.

2) Sticky Fingers Bakery – D.C. is a great place for a vegan, and Sticky Fingers is my favorite place to go for any meal. Plus, their sweets are amazing, and it is consistently named as the best bakery in the city. How could you pass it up?
