    Etete – Modern Ethiopian Food in DC

    Etete 1942 9th St NW, Washington, DC 20001 http://www.eteterestaurant.com Walking into Etete in the Shaw neighborhood of DC feels like home.

    Spiced Red Sangria – Perfect for Fall

    One of my favorite go-to cocktails is Sangria! You can have it red, you can have it white, you can have it sparkling, and you can have it all…year…long.
