Pull out your planner and start fasting now, as the coming week is offering plenty of tasty temptations …

Feeling amorous? Civil Cigar Lounge has partnered with Destination D.C. to offer a date night special (through Thursday) in which couples can get a half bottle of champagne or red wine, two cigars and chocolates starting at $85. To bump it up a notch: Make reservations at Bryan Voltaggio’s recently opened Italian concept Aggio, which is just next door inside Range. The spinach pasta and carpaccio look tantalizingly good.
