Sure, the #Logi16 users conference will offer a jam-packed agenda, with tips and tricks directly from Logi users and experts.

But what about the time you aren’t in these awesome sessions or training? We’ve pulled together our favorite DC eateries and activities.

Good Eats
Whether you’re looking for a quick bite to eat, or want sit down at one of the world’s best restaurants, here’s a few of our favorite spots:

Ben’s Chili Bowl is a landmark in D.C., serving up their famous half smokes with chili. Frequented by presidents and celebrities (President Obama has a reserved booth), be sure to order a milkshake with your dog.

Another option for a quick bite is Bubs and Pops – a family owned sub and hoagie shop near Dupont Circle. We’re fans of the Italian Hoagie and Braised Beef Brisket sandwich.

The ramen craze is sweeping the city, so be sure to grab a bowl at Momofuku Or for a local flavor, visit Izakaya / Daikaya – it’s a ramen hot spot, as well as a top-notch Tokyo-style restaurant.

If you’re looking for upscale fare, Jose Andres has a number of tapas restaurants around town, including Jaleo (Spanish) and Zaytinya (Mediterranean). For Top Chef fans, Mike Isabella also has a few hot spots around the city, including Graffiato (Italian) and Kapnos (Greek) – both are delicious options.

For something extra special, get yourself a reservation at Rasika. Offering modern Indian cuisine, Rasika is a perennial top restaurant in the city. Pro tip: make sure you get the Palak Chaat.

Want to grab a quick beer with some new friends, or rub elbows with politicians? There are a number of great bars and lounges near the Ronald Reagan Building.

City Tap House is a good option if you want to try some craft brews from around the country (over 40 brew lines to be exact). Looking for more, swing by Church Key, which boasts 50 beers on draft
and 500 bottles of beer.

If cocktails are more your style, check out POV at the W Hotel – its rooftop lounge has amazing views of the White House. You could also spring for a cocktail at Barmini, a cocktail lab that offers a menu of than 100 different drinks.

Sights and Sounds
Of course, DC isn’t only about eating and drinking! Whether you’re a history buff or an art aficionado, here a few things you might want to add to your itinerary:
