Hit up farmers markets on the weekends. The Dupont Circle FRESHFARM Market is great plus Union Market is a little out of the way and something most tourists might not get to see. Eat in the Shaw area at Thai-Xing or Southern Efficiency to mingle with locals.

DC is actually really easy to plan for. I like to stay between the Adams Morgan neighborhood and the National Mall so you can walk or have a short cab ride to all the museums and monuments as well as all the bars and restaurants you would need. Adams Morgan has a long strip of bars with typically a younger crowd but there is still a mix. South of that on 14th/15th is the newer classier section of bars and restaurants like the church key which has a more refined menu but not full of snobbery and they have a huge beer and booze selection. I am younger so I stay at The Churchill Hotel right near Adams Morgan so I can walk to bars then take a brisk walk to the restaurants and mall area. There are other places to eat that are more walk in style like Nando's Peri-Peri chicken that is delicious. I could go on and on but you really won't have a problem finding things to do and places to eat.
