Weekend Happenings

Last weekend was one of the most enjoyable in a long time. My friend K came down for a visit, and I took the opportunity of her company to explore more of D.C. We took a trip to the Eastern Market. I have been trying to find such a market in the area for a long time. (o.k….obviously I haven’t been looking hard have I?) I like a nice mix of food and craft vendors at my markets. My only regret: that I don’t life close enough to take advantage of the fresh food on a regular basis. Afterwards we went to the National Gallery of Art. K is one of the few people I know that would appreciate such an outing. If possible, I like to pick up post cards of the paintings that impressed me during a particular visit.

For dinner, we went to this charming hole-in-the-wall Mexican/El Salvadorian cafĂ©. The internet is invaluable when it comes to finding good, cheap eats. I reacquainted myself with pupusas—thick, handmade corn tortillas stuffed with meat and cheese. Yumm.

The Eastern Market is one of my favorite places. And the Art Gallery is my favorite place. Rembrant's Self Potrait is beautiful. His eyes seem soulfull in a way that other artists fail to capture: Honesty.

One of my favorite hole the wall eaterys is El Torro Bravo in old Annapolis. Its fantastic.

Do you like Jazz music?

Oh dear.....I am a sucker for hole in the wall eateries. Yeah! Must check that place out.

And I love jazz music....just as long as it doesn't get too busy. I actually prefer vocal jazz, and old school at that. Blossom Dearie, Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, Dina Shore, Dina Washington, etc.
