You just can't keep me away from your fabulous city. I had such a blast 2 years ago I've decided to return. I'll be there from Wed the 22nd till Sunday the 27th. I have plans for Saturday evening, and I will most likely be useless on Wednesday. But I am free on any other day or evening for lunch/dinner/voids. If anyone would like to meet up, just say the word. And, as last time, I welcome any and all suggestions for places to buy yummy chocolates or cakes. And a good place for afternoon tea. My coworker recommended a place called the Mansion on O for brunch, and said they had offbeat events like treasure hunts. When I looked at their website, the whole place looked bizarre to me. Is this a place I should check out, or is it only for gullible tourists? BTW, I was originally planning to arrive on Monday, but when I looked for a hotel room, it seemed the whole city was booked solid. I couldn't figure out why DC would be booked up that week in January. I figured it out eventually.
