Irish Music and Trains at the Awesome U.S. Botanic Garden!

The weather wasn't too good when we did this last week - although we still had a great group - so let's post again for this Thursday. I saw the group 40 Thieves last year here and they were really high-energy and talented.  So it's a good opportunity to visit this neat place.

The beautiful US Botanic Garden gets all decorated for the holidays AND puts up an incredible working model train display in a side room.  They are doing these concerts every Tuesday and Thursday evenings so I strongly encourage you to visit (on this night or others). It is one of the nicest holiday venues in the area.  Here's their website. It's free, Metro is close, parking is easy, and the place is incredibly decorated and under-visited. Note that seating is very limited - though there are benches scattered around.

On this night, we'll enjoy 40 Thieves - so get your Irish side warmed up!  They don't sell any food or drinks there, but you can bring something in. I can't organize the dinner after like we did last week - we went to Teaism.  But if someone else wants to, that's cool.  Or maybe we can meet for Happy Hour before.

I think Federal Center SW is closest Metro, and there is plentiful parking.

    Think I saw Joshua but I stayed for about 30 minutes then took photos outside- maybe next time when it's not so crowded.

    We're opposite the Capitol by the other entrance, to the left of the band if you're facing them.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight. my number is[masked] if you need to text. I'll try to get there by about 5:50. They're pretty prompt on starting these things. We'll go in around 6:05. But we shouldn't be hard to find. Or look for us in the train room at intermission. Apologies that I can't lead dinner after.
