The best weekends are the weekends we can spend relaxing in our own backyard. My backyard happens to include Washington DC and Arlington...I know not to Shabby! A couple of days ago I was honored to be asked to hangout at Pentagon Row. To be honest I never really headed into that part of Arlington....and now I don't know why at all because the Row is amazing and I've gone back twice since my afternoon there!
OK parking is kind of a big deal around here and usually in Arlington it's basically non existent or you have to drive around forever. This hasn't been my case at all in Pentagon Row. The interior lot has always had ample spaces, and the pricing is quite reasonable. Just make sure you have the Park Mobile App Downloaded on your phone. Easy Peasy!
When it comes down to it the Shops at Pentagon Row (PR) are spectacular. They have everything from TJ MAXX, Ulta, Loft, DSW, to the best Harris Teether! Trust me on the last item I happen to think of myself of a grocery store expert.
On this particular Saturday I headed over to TJ MAXX for some light shopping for an event I had going on later. The selection on dresses was pretty spot on and I left with a flowwy dress and sandals that were perfect for a hot summers night out. I can't forget to mention that this shop is stocked with so many great home essentials like tupperware and decorative succulents. I'm an known plant murderer so picking up a couple of decorative succulents to jazz up my house was the best part of my day.
If you've been following me for a while you will know that I love to source my skincare in a responsible manner. You can imagine how happy I was to see that there was an Ulta at PR. For one they carry my favorite haircare products, Alterna. They also carry my latest obsession.... the Mega-Mushroom line by Dr. Andrew WEIL X Origins! This line is everything to me right now, with all of research being done on Mushrooms skincare power this is a line you do not want to miss!
Looking for a new place to workout? Head over to Club Pilates. Nothing has moved or shaped my body better than Reformer Pilates and this cute little studio offers levels for everyone, beginner to master.

Many places claim to have a Courtyard, but PR has an Courtyard! This spacious area is perfection for anyone looking for a place to hang out on a weekend afternoon with family, friends or just a good book. Pick a bench or one of the delicious restaurants on the row to hang out! Have plans tonight? No....head over to Rock at the Row for a night filled with Jazz while you dine and relax!
Like I mentioned before I've been back a couple of times since my first stop for a couple of reasons. The first being Bread and Water Company. Due to the nature of my food business I've become familiar with Farmers Market Stable Bread and Water Company, I actually hadn't the slightest idea that they had a coffee shop here! I love a delicious cup of coffee and their cold brew has been getting me through on super hawt days!
My second reason for coming back so soon was dinner and drinks. We started off at Sine, who honestly has one of the better happy hours around with half off apps and great drink specials! We then headed over to Basic Burger for one of the best LOCAL burgers I've had to date. Everything at Basic Burger is sourced fresh and locally.
So what are you waiting for? Will you meet me there for Jazz, a delicious drink and maybe some shopping?
