Martin's Tavern

This Georgetown, family-owned classic restaurant--open since 1933--is a gem. You can feel the history as soon as you walk in the door. The menu was extensive and everything we ordered was delicious. Our special guest this week was Meme! It was nice to spend time together and share with her all of Julia's updates.

This week, we talked about the looming November 1 deadline. Julia is working on finishing up her Carnegie early decision application, in addition to six other early action applications. Julia also shared Chris's list. He's not applying early decision anywhere, but he has a good list of schools (similar to Julia's, in fact). :)

Presidents from Truman to George W. Bush have frequented Martin's. Favorite booths are labeled with plaques.
