Perfectly healthy people from coast to coast are already calling in sick for Thrillist’s Best Day of Your Life, the nation’s greatest new national holiday, and we want YOU to join their ranks. Spend all day Friday, June 21st hitting up the best restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and more that your city has to offer — as chosen by local Thrillist readers and editors.

Be on the lookout for Thrillist editors, who will be giving away complimentary high fives (and maybe some extra goodies too), and use Foursquare to check in at our #BDOYL locations for the chance to score freebies, discounts, and more!

Coffee Stop: Filter Coffeehouse

1726 20th St NW
Washington, DC 20009
(202) 234-5837

Because you can’t have the Best Day of Your Life if you’re still recovering from the Best Yesterday of Your Life. Crew up at the bike share, and then pedal to Filter for a cup ‘o caffeine, or if that’s full, head over to M.E. Swing and dominate a latte. Happen to be in Woodley Park? Hit our Readers’ pick Open City.

Head over to Boqueria for a sangria and some tapas. Buuutt, if that’s too crowded, head over to DGS Delicatessen for a choice sandwich and brew.

Happy Hour: Vinoteca

Washington, DC 20001

Come for the awesome happy hour, stay… for the awesome happy hour. Then pop up 12th to Vinoteca and snag some wine, and play some bocce. If that’s packed, grab half priced pints at BlackJack.
