In every issue, Washington Life Magazine highlights the favorite places and spaces of notable Washington residents. This month features TWB Artistic Director Septime Webre's selections!
1. COMET PING PONG (5037 Connecticut Ave NW)
Whether it's a late night "Hottie" (pepperoni and jalapeno pizza) and Belgian beer, or playing ping pong with my godson Will after school, Comet is one of a kind. Its deconstructed industrial interior and cool artistic vibe makes this my hands-down favorite casual food and drink spot. If you're really lucky, things get punchy later on when owner James Alefantis can be spotted dancing on the light fixtures!
2. I love Gail Harris's wickedly good ashtanga class at FLOW YOGA CENTER (1450 P St. NW) and Mike Graglia's seriously challenging vinyasa class at YOGA DISTRICT (1910 14th St. NW). Gail is warm, funny and kinda no-frills; Mike kicks some serious butt (I actually had to go to the ER for sitches after attempting one of his crazy flying positions).
3. PICA TACO, a tiny hole-in-the-wall off Columbia Road and 16th Street NW, makes tacos that remind me of ones I ate growing up in outh Texas. My favorite? Chicken chalupas with extra jalapenos, washed down with a Negro Modelo.
