It is Thursday morning and maybe you are starting to consider your plans for this weekend. How about ditching them all and hopping on the bus to New York?

For our lovely readers, the DC to Brooklyn bus service The Knowitexpress has offered five round-trip tickets between our fair city and our big sister to the north (specifically, to that city’s loveliest borough).

As many of you know by now, we are losing one of our own We Love DC authors, Erin McCann, to Brooklyn this very week. You may have heard her frantically asking people for Brooklyn’s answer to Peregine for weeks now. So, to ease her transition and win these tickets, post a comment below by 5:00pm today with an SAT style analogy of [Awesome Thing in DC] : DC :: [Counterpart] : New York.

Example – “Peregrine Espresso : DC :: Cafe Grumpy Greenpoint : Brooklyn” The five comments Erin and I deem most amusing and/or useful will win.

Your comment must have a valid email address, one entry per email address, please. Comments will be closed at 5pm and the five winners will be selected. The winner will be notified by email. The winner must respond to our email by midnight or they will forfeit their tickets and we will pick another winner.

Brittany has tried to leave DC, it just never lasts. She has lived in Chicago, California, and China – but she always comes back home. Brittany is a drinks, nightlife, and style correspondent for We Love DC. Between columns, you can find her on Twitter, Tumblr, or standing by the bar. Email her at brittany(at)welovedc.com.
