Let's grab some brunch at Tortilla Coast and then tour the US Capitol.
Special instructions about the Capitol tour: Tours of the historic U.S. Capitol are free; however tour passes are required. The Capitol is open Monday-Saturday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Tours of the Capitol begin with a 13-minute orientation film and last approximately one hour. Regular visitor tours start at 8:50AM and end at 3:20PM.
If we get enough early reservations, then I will try to set up a group tour with tour passes for our meetup. To do this, I will need people to let me know that you are going to attend so that I can get a count (minimum 10) and set up the group reservation. BTW, if we have less than 10, then we can just do one of the regular visitor tours. Please sign up by EOD Monday 12/3, if interested in a group tour.
If you want to be extra prepared, you can get a tour pass online. Note: You might not want to take a chance with (hopefully) getting one of the tour passes available daily at the US Capitol Visitors Center.
Our brunch spot is Tortilla Coast.

Tortilla Coast is about a half block south of the Capitol South Metro Stop (Blue/Orange) on 1st St SE & D St SE. The US Capitol is North of the Capitol South Metro by about 2 blocks. Union Station is the stop for the Red Line and about 3-4 blocks north of the US Capitol Building; keeping walking south two blocks to get to Tortilla Coast.
Last, as always, I'm open to suggestions. Look forward to seeing you on 12/8.
