CUBA HAPS—President Obama (and his Spring Breaking daughters) aren't the only ones visiting Cuba right now. D.C.'s favorite son, José Andrés, went to Cuba, too, and in an official capacity: as US Culinary Ambassador, to speak on a panel about US-Cuban business opportunities. [EaterWire]

ARLINGTON—Palette 22 is looking to a very apt source of inspiration for its new beverage program: art and the artists who make it. Van Gogh gets a cocktail shout-out (tequila, mango syrup, cumin and white pepper), as does impressionism itself (vodka, prosecco, Asian pear, sake.) [EaterWire]

ATLAS DISTRICT—DC Harvest has new weeknight specials for those eager to ride the (now running!) streetcar. Sunday brings half-priced apps and desserts; Monday is for half-price bottles of wine; Tuesday means two drinks, two entrees and one dessert for $50; Wednesday is half-price pasta; Thursday is an all-night happy hour.
