Favorite DC monument/memorial?
The interactive FDR Memorial – I am an Eleanor fan, actually. And I adore that the whole monument experience is to be heard & felt for differently abled Citizens to enjoy.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial
I’m a huge fan of the Jefferson Memorial. It’s open 24 hours a day so you wander whenever you feel a little hopeless about the state of things for a reminder of when we stood united (well, mostly) and insisted things be made better for our countrymen.
Korean War Memorial. There’s something really haunting about those steel sculptures juxtaposed against the beauty of the DC gardens.
Favorite DC pastime
Going to see theatre! We have a phenomenal indie & professional theatre scene here.
And I am in several local bands so I really enjoy catching some the excellent lineups that roll through Tree House or Velvet Lounge.DC is a cool gastroburg, as well. I have a friend visiting right now from a less populated area of the Midwest and we take him out to get cuisine that he simply cannot get where he lives. And of course I benefit by eating a path through my city via his fresh-eyed appetite!
Exploring the U.S. Botanic Garden on Capitol Hill, then heading to lunch at Banana Cafe for some Cuban food.
Eating. And walking tours. Especially tours that include history. And ghosts.
Does drinking at Tunnicliffs until 2am with the best people in the world count as a DC pastime? If not, then I would have to say visiting the art museums when I’m feeling creatively drained, or creatively hungry, would be my favorite.
