Very nice!

My family and I are planning a vacation to DC this summer. Looking over your blog got me rather excited! Thanks!

My wife and I are also going to DC this summer. I will definitely check out the Newseum. And I'll ratchet down my expectations for the Air and Space Museum.

Thanks for the post.

Oh - Tommy has 3333 posts as of right now!

Like I said on FB, it is good to see something useful happening in DC.

Glad you enjoyed it, Tom. I found your tale interesting. My wife and I are heading there tomorrow at the crack of dawn for the Easter weekend (this will be the third Easter in a row for us in D.C., so obviously we've had fun on previous trips). There's an endless list of things to do and places to wander, and quite a variety of restaurants. We've always stayed around the Dupont Circle/Morgan's Grant area (a real neighbourhood with a good selection of bars/restaurants and close to the subway).
