Given the extensive itinerary that Destination D.C. cooked up for the culinary tour, I added only two supplemental destinations to the list: 2 Amys and Georgetown Cupcakes. An impromptu meal at the city’s best pizzeria went off without a hitch, while grabbing a cupcake proved to be far more difficult. Who would have thought?
Following our meal at 2 Amys, my cousin Kristine and I hopped a bus traveling down Wisconsin Avenue to make our way to Georgetown. As we approached the famed bakery, we spied a line stretching outside its doors and well around the block. I’m certain that a series of unsavory words escaped my lips while gawking at the madness.
We approached the person at the very front of the line to inquire about the wait time and were told an hour and a half. I was curious to taste a cupcake that supposedly rivaled Sprinkles, but could not muster enough gusto, guts, and patience to endure such a lengthy line. So, off we went to Baked & Wired.
Baked & Wired is strategically located up the street from Georgetown Cupcakes and has attracted a steady following including Kristine’s roommate and one of the locals on the press trip. Both parties vouched that its wares were superior to Georgetown’s.
