It’s not just any Friday, it’s National Carrot Cake Day. This has been a long week and everyone deserves some cake.
Ocean Prime is marking the day by donating $1 to the nonprofit No Kid Hungry for every slice of their Ten Layer Carrot Cake purchased during lunch, happy hour and dinner.
Sunday is the last day of Metropolitan Washington Restaurant Week, so check out the available $22 lunch and $35 dinner options at various locations in the DMV. Capitol Hill spots participating in restaurant week are Acqua Al 2, the Monocle and Bistro Bis, among others.
Reminder: Metro madness
Service on the Metro’s Orange, Blue and Silver lines will be affected by a major track work project planned for Saturday and Sunday. Free shuttle buses will replace all trains between Foggy Bottom and Eastern Market and six stations will be closed: Farragut West, McPherson Square, Federal Triangle, Smithsonian, Federal Center SW and Capitol South.
Also, lower-level platforms will close at Metro Center, which will only be open for the Red Line, and L’Enfant Plaza, which will be open for the Yellow and Green lines.
