1. Have cocktails at the Mandarin Oriental's bar.
2. Go to the crazy Byzantine Franciscan Monastery near Catholic. Also: Find Darth Vader on the Cathedral.
3. Have an omakase meal at Sushi Ko.
RE Asylum beer fest: just tell me the date and I'm there. It's a lot of fun. Warning: may result in drunkenly eating at Amsterdam Falafel Shop at 10 PM, just when other people are getting to Adams Morgan.Posted by: Kanishka on August 16, 2005 04:06 PM
the falafel thing is good! i haven't eaten there yet, so i'll consider it an addition to the list. and those are all excellent ideas. i'll definitely do the MO bar, and i've been wanting to go to the monastery for a while.Posted by: catherine on August 16, 2005 04:12 PM
oh, and also: go to eastern market!Posted by: catherine on August 16, 2005 04:13 PM
you haven't been to eastern market? I think that might be my new hangout area if I can get more peeps to go.
go run up and down the exorcist stairs. i know you used to live near there, but just combine a crazy running workout with a landmark.Posted by: Naomi on August 17, 2005 08:36 AM
Umm... no Eastern Market? Dude, you gotta go. Saturday mornings are the bomb there. Go before your party the 27th and purchase buffalo meats and free range pork sausages from Cibola farms. Just try to get there early... and gimme a call if you're there!Posted by: Kanishka on August 18, 2005 09:13 AM
