Even Politicians Love Cupcakes!
This Story is just for fun!
Ever city and town has one...you know that boutique store that EVERYONE raves about that is known for something special because its trendy or fun! Well in the Capital Area the "IT" spot is Georgetown Cupcakes, a gourmet cupcake destination. Yesterday, my boyfriend and I did a 16 miles bike ride along the Potomac River leaving from Georgetown, DC and ended up in one of our favorite places... Downtown Bethesda! The trail that we took is extremely scenic and the sights were wonderful! We had an amazing view of Arlington, VA, a serious hill climb along the Potomac, saw a couple of waterfalls, rode through a lighted tunnel, passed city life, road through wooded areas and shopping districts and even saw a black squirrel ....all in the span of 7 miles... Wonderful!
When we finally reached Bethesda, Maryland (about a 7 mile bike from Georgetown along the Capital Crescent Trail) we stopped for some sight seeing and ... talk about being in the right place at the right time-- Just as we road pass Georgetown Cupcake, two SUV's stopped in front of the door. Someone hopped out of the front seat with an earplug and I immediately knew the nature of his visit... someone important wanted a Georgetown Cupcake!
We rode by again and low and behold, it was the US Attorney General. In DC, our celebrities are the Dignitaries and Diplomats! :) DC is the Mecca of all things Government so seeing Secret Service cars is common place in and around the district. US Attorney General, Eric H. Holder, Jr. ---- WOW! is he really a fan of Georgetown Cupcake?! :) I really wanted to plug my Vegan Truffles and offer him one...hummmm, but I erred to the side of caution and just joined in with the other on-lookers as he purchased his Georgetown Cupcakes!
PS. If you live or ever plan to visit the DC area, be sure to bring your bike or rent a bike. Biking in the District is an awesome way to see the commuter/biker friendly city with designated bike lanes and currently has the US's largest bikeshare program, Capital Bikeshare.
