This weekend, Michelle and I went to check out the first ever Thread event at Union Market in DC. First of all, if you have never been to Union Market, you must get in your car and drive there as quickly as possible. Not only does this unique market have some of the hottest restaurants, good booze and cute shops but they also have a farmers market on the weekends. My absolute favorite thing to eat at Union Market are the korean tacos from Takorean, you have to try the Bulgogi Taco with Kimchi Slaw (you can thank me later). But I might not be seeing them as often as usual because my all time favorite ramen shop, Toki Underground, has a Pop-Up-Shop set up there for the next month. If you see a blonde chick slurping ramen in the corner..odds are that will be me.
Enough about food, let’s talk about Thread. Thread was located upstairs (above the market) from Friday to Sunday this past weekend. Carefully selected designers and retailers were invited to set up shop in this super hip space to sell their unique products. Below are pictures and links to my favorite designers and shops, some of them are still running cyber monday deals so click and shop away! I heard a rumor that Thread could be a quarterly event for Union Market and I hope this is true because you just can’t find this kind of attention to detail and personal touch from designers at your local mall.
