No newbies here. We've been hosting family, friends(recs below), and friends of friends for years, so we have it down pat. Is there really a bigger critic than your mom/mom-in law? Rob is a great cook and baker and loves an appreciative audience. Michael (pictured) works for an international organization and makes killer BBQ. We're both 15 year plus residents of DC and know the ins and outs of the city. Stay with us and you'll have a great time.
