2. Our bought-on-a-whim LivingSocial Escape to Punta Cana was the perfect weekend respite from plunging temperatures and a Sandy aftermath in the District. It also quickly turned into a couples retreat. #LightMyFire
3. Praise the Mostachioed Gods for Movember.
4. Essential reading materials for a Dominican beach. Cook’s Illustrated definitely made it into the beach totes of these Tejanos.
5. Tastebud Highlights of the Week: Fresh Coconut, Pineapple & Bananas, Sancocho (look for a blog post soon!), and the illustrious Coco Loco- a perfect blend of white rum, creme de coco & nutmeg.
6. The views in Punta Cana are unrivaled- ok perhaps rivaled only by our fave entry in the DC High Heel Race this year: The View. There was no lip syncing for their lives- these ladies were perfect!
