Even if you feel like you've taken your yoga practice as far as it can go, there's a final frontier left to conquer: aerial yoga at Up Yoga and Wellness. Unlike traditional mat-based yoga, aerial yoga opens up a full range of motion. Yogis hang a few feet above the ground, suspended by silk hammocks that hang from the ceiling. With the support of these soft hammocks, students can sink deeper into bends and twists, challenging their bodies to take yoga a step further.
Don't worry if you're not quite ready for aerial yoga, however. Up Yoga and Wellness boasts a large roster of traditional classes, too. Newcomers should check out Yoga Fundamentals, where they'll learn basic postures and breathing techniques. Then you can try a faster-paced class such as all-levels Vinyasa. The quick-flowing session gets the blood pumping with a fluid series of moves, all performed with a focus on safety and proper alignment. For something slower, opt for Yoga Hoga, a meditative class that incorporates elements of gentle yoga.
It's not just the mimosas that are bottomless during brunch at La Malinche. The brunch tapas also flow freely from the kitchen when you and your cohorts order the bottomless brunch for $35 per person. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., order as many family-style small plates as your stomachs can handle and wash them down with beverages like white sangria, mimosas, and house-made bloody mary's.
Order a round of the pan Catalana, which is toast topped with tomato butter, olive oil, and garlic. Balance it with something sweet, such as the house-made French toast or the sweet potato pancakes, both drizzled with warm maple syrup. Don't forget to add eggs to your brunch smorgasbord, either. Round out the feast with the tortilla con chorizo, an omelet stuffed with Spanish sausage and cheese, or the Benedictos Espanoles, a poached egg complemented by Serrano ham and hollandaise.Read More

According to its website, the chef at Lina's Diner and Bar crafts French dishes "that sometimes border on the absurd." And if early reviews are any indication, the eaters in Silver Spring are delighted by the display of creativity and innovation at this freshly opened restaurant.
Since it first opened the doors two months ago, Lina's has racked up some rave reviews for its pork belly poutine, which features Wisconsin cheese curds and house-made gravy. It's a nod to French-Canadian cuisine. The TNT toast is another example of the chef's ingenuity at Lina's Diner and Bar. The crostini comes crowned with tuna tartare, tobiko, and spicy mayo. Whether you opt for the steak frites, a double cheeseburger, or anything in between, there's a beverage on the libations list that will complement it perfectly. Classic cocktails, craft beer, and top-shelf wines populate the lengthy list.Read More
The Thai term "Ruang Khao" refers to the raw rice plant before it has been harvested. Given that rice serves as the foundation for the traditional Thai diet, it's only fitting that Ruang Khao Thai Cuisine bears the name of the grain. The menu features ample amounts of rice paired with flavorful meats and veggies.
The chef's specials are a prime example of the authentic and inventive Thai fare served at Ruang Khao. Savor the ginger duck, morsels of crispy duck tossed in a sweet-ginger brown sauce with veggies and dished out over rice. Try the Thai-style salmon, dressed with your choice of basil sauce or Panang curry. You can also opt for a more traditional curry or entree, such as the Drunken Noodles or the pad Thai. Save some room for the fresh mango and sweet sticky rice or the baked taro custard.Read More
Ground beef with beans, rice, plantains, avocado, fried pork and sausage, and a fried egg, all stuffed inside a corn cake. This is the bandeja paisa, one of the most popular dishes at Arepas Pues. The bandeja paisa falls underneath the umbrella of Colombian cuisine, but the eatery also dishes out classic Venezuelan and Cuban eats, as well as the signature arepas.
The kitchen team crafts the arepas from scratch using ground maize or flour and fills them with ingredients like shredded beef, white cheese, or black beans. Order your pupusa stuffed with the ingredients of your choice or try a pre-designed creation, like the Beauty Queen with chicken and avocado or the Pabellon with black beans, beef, and sweet plantains. You can also opt for one of the international entrees or skip right to a dessert, like the flan or arroz con leche.
