Warby Parker Class Trip (DC)

Hop on board the bus and join the Warby Parker Class Trip. I joined them on their first stop in Washington, DC at Union Station. This weekend you can find them in Georgetown on M Street (between Wisconsin Ave and 31st St) from 11am to 7pm. 
You can try on all of the available style including the new Holiday Collection, which had just launched when I visited. I brought my prescription with me so I was able to order a pair of  "Crane" frames in Mallard Green. For just $95 I will recieve a pair of stylish Warby Parker glasses complete with my prescription and a pair of frames will be donated to a person in need
I'm wearing my old Warby Parker frames in the photos above, scroll all the way down to see my new ones! I want to see you in your Warby Parker frames if you visit the Warby Parker Class Trip bus Tweet me a photo (@breaellis).

DC after Dark

I recently had an out of town guest visiting DC for a few days and I took the opportunity to play tourist in my own city. We went on a "DC after Dark" tour of the memorials by moonlight. It all started off nicely enough...and then it rained. Not just a sprinkle...the sky opened up and poured on the top level of the open top double decker bus and drenched us! Luckily the rain stopped by the time we got to the first monument and we happily hopped off and snapped these photos.
