Top 5 Ideas for Washington DC Bachelor Parties: Take a DC Party Bus!

So you’re having your bachelor party in Washington, DC. Excellent choice. DC is the perfect place for bachelor party shenanigans. I always recommend hiring a DC party bus to take you around because that’s the most fun ever, but beyond that, there’s no end to what you can do. But I can see you’re a good planner. That’s why you’re here. So let me recommend a few things I find myself recommending to bachelor party clients again and again. Here are my top 5 bachelor party ideas in Washington, DC. Hang out on Capitol Hill Take a DC party bus to Capitol Hill. Start the party on the bus, and eat at any one of the truly great restaurants in the area. I used to send people to the Pour House—which was actually rich with games, a sports bar, and a lounge combined in a three-floor restaurant. The Pour House is boarded up now, but the people who ran it now run Barrel—a great restaurant-bar to kick off your bachelor party. It looks like a wine bar, but it’s got some casual touches (flatscreens, ahem) that’ll make you feel welcome to stay awhile. After drinks, get back in your Party Bus DC Rental and hop all over the bars and restaurants on Capitol Hill. If you’re there late (or early, as the case may be), stop at Tune Inn for greasy snacks. Charter a private cruise on the Potomac Take a DC party bus rental to a party boat and cruise all night! This can be more creative than it sounds. It doesn’t have to just be you and...

How to save money on a DC limo service: Tips from a friendly driver. Reserve your limo before you actually need it. This sounds obvious. But take it to heart.

Before you make your reservation, make sure you know where you’re being picked up from. If you don’t know your pick-up address yet, the DC limousine company might not know how much fuel to charge for . . . so they’ll charge for a lot. Plan your limousine adventure on the right day of the week. Do you really have to have a limo on Friday or Saturday night? Okay, maybe. Those are some prom nights. However, if you reserve during the week, you might save money on a DC limo service. Sundays are usually good, too. Don’t book a limousine on a Saturday night in April or May. That’s prom limo season.

Ask a DC Limo Driver: The Top 5 DC B&Bs

Ask a DC Limo Driver: The Top 5 DC B&Bs

Last week, I talked about the top five hotels in Washington, DC. The kinds of places that you always see DC limousines pulling away from because important people are always going and coming. But not everybody’s a “swanky hotels” and “limousines” kind of guest. Sometimes, you want a comfy feel for your trip. That’s where DC’s best B&Bs can serve you. The bed and breakfasts in DC are as welcoming as my mom’s house (but without constant texting about not being late for dinner). Which bed and breakfasts should you stay at? Here are my recommendations. A DC limousine driver’s top 5 B&Bs in our nation’s capital 1 & 2. Woodley Park & Embassy Circle It’s not that I couldn’t make a decision for the top spot. (Drivers of DC limousines can’t be indecisive.) It’s that Woodley and Embassy are run by the same brothers-in-law, Raymond and Joe, who restored them from run-down conditions. Both B&Bs feel like modern suburban homes . . . if we’re talking about an upscale DC suburb where Martha Stewart designed every interior. The rooms are full of natural light, and all the artwork is done by guests who happen to be artists. Hopefully you’ll get the Mascarpone French Toast at breakfast—and don’t skip the coffee! (It’s really good.) Both B&Bs are located downtown, in the middle of attractions and restaurants, and Metro isn’t far. For special outings, DC limousines services can pull right up to the inns. During renovations, Raymond and Joe installed high-efficiency, green appliances at both inns. So if you’re an eco-traveler, Woodley Park and Embassy Circle are great choices. Taft...
6 Tips to Hire a DC Limo Service for Your Wedding

6 Tips to Hire a DC Limo Service for Your Wedding

If your DC limo service is top-notch, you’ll probably never realize what an impact they had on your wedding. A bottom-notch DC limo service, however . . . let’s just say you’ll realize their impact. Let me tell you a little story, and give you some tips to check “hire a DC limo service” off your list of ten million things to do. You might also want to check out my post about which questions to ask when you’re hiring a DC limo service.   6 Tips to Hire a DC Limo Service for Your Wedding The only reason this story even happened was because we had a cancellation that left two limousines open on a Saturday. I got a call to come in for a last-minute reservation, and I jumped on it. What can I say? I’m married to my job. (A little wedding humor for you there.) A bride and her divas-in-waiting were doing just that—waiting on the side of the road. See, the bride’s friend’s brother’s mom knew some guy who had a couple of his own limousines, and they decided to hire him instead of going with a quality DC limo service. (Who has limousines just sitting around? What a weirdo.) Unfortunately, said guy forgot to mention that the limousines were mismatched, and one was a poorly-kept Cadillac from 1980 that made it about four blocks before breaking down. I shudder to think what would have happened if we hadn’t had a cancellation that day. TIP 1: Reserve your DC limo service about six months before your wedding. What if we hadn’t had any limousines...
