Best Game Night

Fuel up for game night with some of the freshest Mexican food around at trendy Gringos & Mariachis in Bethesda, where you’ll want to try the duck or cauliflower tacos and the ginger-hibiscus margaritas. Arrive early because the cozy restaurant doesn’t take reservations. Then stroll 2½ blocks to Tapp’d for an evening of pool, board games, air hockey, foosball and other old-school entertainment like Skee-Ball, along with craft beer (they have 40 brews on draft) and cocktails. You can even take pictures in a boardwalk-style photo booth.
