    It was fun! Great people, great music, interesting art. I met some really nice people. Host did a super job of considering the group and progressing the group during the evening.

    Ugh, won't be able to make it - completely exhausted - if anyone wants to join me for parade and/or capitol concert - give me holla[masked]

    July 3, 2014

    • serenitysf

      hehehe, posted that and thought - I'm not as hip as I sound - I'm visiting DC for next couple weeks so trying to pack a lot in - especially on the 4th - I want to go to the parade and then get a good seat for the West Lawn Capitol Concert - don't think it's appropriate for me to post meetup since I'm only visiting - but maybe others want to join me on 4th - let me know

    I am not usually into Japanese food, but this restaurant has good reviews on The Urban Spoon. Some of the entrees look good. It is called Sakana Japanese.
