    I live a block or two away from it. It is easily accessible from the Cleveland Park or Van Ness-UDC Metro.

    I can do lunch (or afternoon tea, if anyone is interested in that) on Thursday, Friday, Monday or Tuesday. Brunch or lunch would work on Saturday or Sunday, but I'd need to get to the Kennedy Center by 2 PM saturday and 1:30 PM Sunday.
    I can do dinner on Saturday, Sunday, Monday or Tuesday. I could also do dinner on Friday, but would need to leave in time to get to the Kennedy Center by 7:30 PM.
    Hope to meet some of you soon!

    I'm staying up all night, because I am NOT a morning person, and I have an early train. If I go to bed, I will not get up on time.

    I will sleep on the train, it terminates at union Station, so there is no danger that I will wake up in Florida. I've resigned myself to be useless for the rest of the day, however, but I will check back here on Thursday.
    On the off chance that I feel reasonably alert in the evening, I may get myself to the Kennedy Center and see if I can get a ticket for the NBC gala. Is anyone else planning to attend? We could meet during the intermssion if I manage to haul my but over there.

    Do they not have alarm clocks in NYC?
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Hope you had a safe trip, Marge, and are enjoying the Kennedy Center gala.

    I can't do anything on Friday, but I could do lunch/brunch/dinner this weekend or dinner on Tuesday.

    Two Washington, D.C. restaurants I enjoyed when I was there for Worlds in 2003:

    Jaleo's. Spanish restaurant that serves wonderful tapas.
    Teaism. Asian-influenced tea shop that serves meals in binto boxes.

    Jaleo is one of my favorite places!

    I can't do a weekday lunch, but am available most other times.

    Aside from the memorials, I really enjoyed just walking around the DuPont Circle (with a stop at Kramerbooks) and Georgetown neighborhoods. The later's a little more annoying to get to as there's no subway but they do shuttle buses from DuPont.

    On a beautiful day like this I wish I could transport myself there lol.

    Of course we have alarm clocks. Alas, we do not have alarm clocks that are wired up to your bed and will tip you out when the alarm goes off.

    I am a total night owl, also, once I am asleep, a marching band could stroll through my bedroom without waking me.

    I am in Dc, whee!
    And it as hot as hell.
    I ate at Circa yesterday but did not see MK.
    NBC tonight, I am psyched.

    Marge, this weather is nothing compared to the past few days. It's been in the mid-upper 90s all week until now, so consider yourself lucky.

    If you still have some time, I highly recommend to you or actually anybody to visit the special exhibition: State of Deception, the power of Nazi propaganda at the Holocaust museum. I took the guided tour which lasted aprox 45 min and then stayed another 1 hs. I has excellent material and films made by the Nazi showing life at the ghetto (it is shown in a small monitor).

    I was thinking about Teaism yesterday. I love stopping there on hot days. It has quite a lot of indoor seating (some in the basement), and the ginger limeade is very refreshing. I also enjoy the chicken salad (contains apples, so not for those who dislike sweet salads) and coconut rice pudding. Teaism is on 8th St just north of Pennsylvania Avenue.

    Thanks so much for mentioning this. I haven't been to the Holocuast Museum in ages, and this is an exhibit I'd especially like to see.

    Marge: I've got some info on two chocolate shops: Artisan Confections near the Clarendon Metro and Biagio's a bit farther from the Dupont Circle Metro. If you need the info before we meet up, call and I'll give it to you over the 'phone.

    Hee. I love when this happens. That was the last exhibition my ex-husband curated there. And actually it is really good.

    I just saw this thread and could do a meetup Sunday, I think...has any time been set? And flyingsit is totally correct about the weather, today is beeyotiful compared to what the last few days were like!

    And there's another Teasim near Dupont Circle, on R Street just west of Connecticut.

    This is a summary of who is probably available for meals, based on posts in this thread:

    Fri lunch: aliceanne, acraven, Marge
    Fri dinner: flyingsit, acraven; Marge to KenCen by 7:30 PM

    Sat lunch/brunch: flyingsit, Debbie S, acraven, Marge to KenCen by 2 PM
    Sat dinner: flyingsit, Debbie S, acraven, Marge

    Sun lunch/brunch: aliceanne, flyingsit, Debbie S, PRLady, acraven, Marge to KenCen by 1:30 PM
    Sun dinner: flyingsit, Debbie S, PRLady, acraven, Marge

    Mon lunch: acraven (2:45 appt.), Marge
    Mon dinner: flyingsit, acraven, Marge

    Tue lunch: acraven, Marge
    Tue dinner: flyingsit, Debbie S, acraven, Marge

    Based on info available to me, the single best option (everyone seemingly available!) is early brunch on Sunday. Does anyone know of a good brunch spot that would be convenient for Marge, given that she needs to be at the theatre by 1:30? I don't frequent DC brunch spots.

    Sunday night is the next best option, then a Saturday meal or Tuesday night.

    Marge would like to fit in afternoon tea. Teatimes are as early as 2-4:30 PM and as late as 4-6 PM. This can only happen on Fri, Mon, or Tue since Marge has afternoon plans on both Sat and Sun. Is there anyone (besides me) available on one of those weekday afternoons?

    Also for Marge: Artisan confections, chocolatier near Clarendon Metro, will be discounting everything 20% on Saturday. The stuff will still be expensive, but think how much you could save if you bought lots!

    I didn't realize Sunday night was an option, I could do that.

    If we want to do brunch we would need to stick to Foggy Bottom area in order to get Marge to the KC in time. The Watergate Hotel is near KC, but it may be pricey.

    IMHO the Dupont Circle/Connecticut Ave. area offers the best selection of restaurants.

    I'm now otherwise committed for both brunch and dinner. (I'm only in town every other weekend and things stack up.)


    But I also can do Saturday brunch/lunch or Monday dinner, after 6.
