OK so we just got some snow but it is the middle of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. You don't have to wait for peak bloom (April 8-12) to start celebrating.
One fun way to do just that: Head to Georgetown's Ritz-Carlton, 3100 South St. NW, where they're getting creative by serving up Cherry S'Mores, made with cherry marhsmallows, chocolate sauce and homemade pistachio crumble, according to hotelchatter.com.
Best part? These tasty treats are free, from 6:30-7 p.m., in the hotel's The Living Room.
