I have to give it up to the guys at Sweetgreen. The DC-area fast casual chain has been stepping its game up lately. When I spoke to Sweetlife co-owner Jonathan Neman a few weeks ago, he stressed the brand’s eagerness to extend into the music and lifestyle circles, and so far, so good. The Sweetlife Festival next weekend has emerged to be a powerhouse with The Strokes and Lupe Fiasco headlining the bill, and their new Sweetlife Sessions bringing buzzed about artists to DC throughout the summer.
Last week one of our favorite artists, Toro Y Moi, rolled through their Logan Circle location in DC for an impromptu afternoon session before his sold out show. Check it.
