Corcoran Free Summer Saturday Tour and Social - drinks/food after

Very much in the news of late, the Corcoran Gallery of Art remains one of the treasures of Washington DC. They are putting much of their best art and photography on display this summer, and with their Free Saturdays program, we should take advantage.  Let's latch on to their 3 pm Tour, and then we can have another hour after that to wander and socialize.

We can head to Vapiano down the street at 5pm for Happy Hour drinks and/or some food. That will give us flexibility to sit outside if we want and offers food for vegetarians in the group.  There should also be a variety of events afterwards as well that I can update as we get closer. One I know of is the big Open House concert at Signature Theater in Shirlington.

Highlight exhibits at the Corcoran include a Big Photography show, the Art of Albert Paley - big story in the Wash Post today - Sol Lewitt, and other great American and European art.

    Forgot all about a concert at Jiffy Lube tomorrow night, so I have to cancel. I was really looking forward to this too:( Have fun everyone.

    Looking forward to tomorrow! We usually get a third to a half of the signups attending so it should be fine - though we won't want to overload their 3 pm tour so we will play that by ear. So let's gather between 2:45 and 3 in the left side of the large foyer after you walk in. I'll have a sign. And we'll take it from there. My # to text is[masked] 7494. We'll head to Vapiano at 5 for a nice social for drinks and/or dinner.

    Anyone going from the Silver Spring/Forest Glen Metro station area? Depending on the weather, I may drive or I may take Metro.

    I'm looking forward to the Corcoran Tour on Sat. Will they allow over 100 people on a tour at one time? Are they aware that we're coming? thanks.

    Stopped by the Corcoran today. The little merchandise left at the bookstore was 75% off sale prices -- books (etc.) cost a few dollars, postcards were free.

      Yes - they close their doors as The Corcoran for good in just a few weeks, unless the courts rule in favor of Save The Corcoran

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
