Sometimes Monday nights need special treatment. The work week can seem overwhelming with only one tough day under your belt and four to go. To stay out of the rut, then, after dinner, T and I will often meander down the block to Soussi. Its covered outdoor seating area cradles the corner of 18th and Kalorama, and around nine or so is filled with people of various relationships, socializing over drinks and hookah. We like to bring a deck of cards and play gin, and while we always order a pot of hot, sweet mint tea, we are still experimenting with flavors of tobacco. Mango is delightful, but lemon sounds quite promising!
Soussi, 2228 18th St NW
