Dance Place first leapt onto the scene more than three decades ago as an educational and performing arts company that toured local schools. In the years since, it has grown into a multi-faceted operation and source of both entertainment and instruction.

Every weekend, Dance Place dazzles crowds with performances in modern dance, African Dance, performance art, and spoken word. Rather than hiring a sketch artist to doodle each dance step into a flipbook, spectators can learn the moves they see on stage by enrolling in one of Dance Place's programs, or by dropping into an adult or children's class. Dance Place has remained true to its roots through its continued support of local schools, and to this day organizes family-friendly performances, workshops, and school assemblies.

At Princess Mhoon Dance Institute, everyone is welcome—whether you're an aspiring professional dancer or just looking to have a good time while learning dance moves beyond the Macarena. Adults break a sweat in Zumba, African dance fitness, and stretching and toning classes, while younger students master ballet positions, tap steps, and leaps and turns. All the while, Princess Mhoon and her staff craft a welcoming environment that balances serious study with light-hearted fun. It's not just the students who sing Princess Mhoon Cooper's praises—the instructor and choreographer has been commissioned by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and Dance magazine honored her in a 2006 list of 25 to watch.

No worries, mate. There’s no kangaroo on the menu at the Kangaroo Boxing Club – just smoky American meats like good old pulled pork and brisket. Open for drinks, dinner and brunch, KBC specializes in barbecue, but you can also get delicious homemade pastrami, along with hamburgers and classic Southern sides like collard greens and mac ‘n’ cheese. Weekend brunches are hearty, like the Aporkalypse, a patty combining pork, ham and bacon that’s topped with a fried egg and maple syrup. Frequent drinkers can join the Mug Club and purchase a ceramic mug for personal use and related discounts, or stick close to the looming full bar for an array of cocktails. When it’s nice out, stick to the outside tables that line the gray front, considering how stuffy the smallish, wood-accented interior can get.

Maple sits on a recently gentrified street in Washington’s Columbia Heights neighborhood. The intimate wine bar and bistro serves stylish Italian dishes to a wide swath of locals and in-the-know tourists, including a bruschetta combo appetizer that’s perfect for kicking off any meal. Celebrated main dishes include a lamb ragu with tagliatelle, featuring port-braised lamb, olives and parmigiano reggiano cheese, while rotating daily specials are posted on the chalkboard-covered back walls. And why is a place specializing in Italian cuisine called Maple? A slab of tiger maple wood provides the centerpiece for the restaurant design, transformed into a bar running the length of the space. Keep in mind, Maple’s limited hours means they’re only open for dinner and Sunday brunches.

Meridian Pint is the anchor of the hip 11th Street strip in Columbia Heights, but don’t mistake it for just another cool kid hangout. The pub atmosphere welcomes one and all, offering communal tables, outdoor seating, two levels of indoor space to choose from and three unique booths where patrons can pour their own pints of draught beer, right from a tap in the table. Meridian Pint’s environmentally-friendly bar specializes in American craft beers, while the menu offers much more than traditional pub grub. Look for mushroom risotto with Brussels sprouts, or seasonable items like lobster and pumpkin ravioli laced with a lobster bourbon corn sauce. Beyond the good times with friends and wide array of great beer to choose from, Meridian Pint also offers pool tables, shuffleboard and TVs for catching a game.

Using a palette of freshly sliced fruit and house-blended purées, bartenders create masterful signature cocktails ranging from the vodka-infused strawberry lemonade to the cucumber-basil martini. Zeba’s cultivated list of draft beers—crafted by microbrews from across the country—fill glasses to the brim or spur wagers among bar patrons by threatening to overspill their pints with fluffy white heads. Patrons can sip their drinks at one of Zeba Bar and Grill's four distinct areas: the main bar, dance floor, front patio, or outdoor deck. The one-page menu presents a thoughtful selection of upscale bar eats such as spice-marinated chicken kebabs and made-from-scratch pizza to complement both adventurous and traditional drink choices.
