Our visit to the beautiful and elegant Renwick Gallery coincides with the special exhibit, "Lino Tagliapietra in Retrospect: A Modern Renaissance in Glass." Transport yourself to Venice, Italy, where Tagliapietra was trained in the magical art of glass blowing. We will also be able to explore the Renwick's permanent collection of arts and crafts on the 2nd floor. And, best of all, it's free! For the After Party, we will take the nearby Red Line to Proof in Penn Quarter. The After Party will begin at 5 PM when this "wine-centric restaurant serving Modern American cuisine" opens. If you are unable to meet us at the Renwick Gallery, you are welcome to join us at Proof, located at 775 G Street NW, Washington. Just RSVP as such. The Washington Post writes: "There are abundant reasons to visit Proof, the latest restaurant to support Penn Quarter's standing as Washington's most diverting dining destination. Exhibit A is found in your wineglass." I so much look forward to seeing you again and meeting new members on Sunday, Dec. 7th!
