…one more day. May 18th, 2009
Nice weekend here in Washington, though it was punctuated with some rather hot weather and a pretty good thunderstorm Saturday night. We tried to pay a visit to the recently opened Eatonville restaurant on Friday night, but got there just after midnight and they were already in shut down mode (we blogged about the “interior decorating” before). The space looks amazing and I know they had a big competition to pick out a chef, so I am still very interested in giving it a try.
In other openings around town, the “The Bullpen” is now open for business at National’s Park. While it is billed as a “beer garden,” it amounts to not much more than a fenced-in parking lot with a tent, stage, some games, and picnic tables. The Bullpen is a welcomed addition and starts to fill in the huge “there is nothing to do before or after the National’s game” gap that will remain until the market loosens up and more construction on Half St. SE can begin. The Nat’s unfortunately lost to the Phillies, but it was a high scoring game and we were able to score seats in the 2nd row — directly behind home plate — so that helped to take the edge off.
The opening of Artomatic is a mere 12 days away. Lori and I went in on Sunday night, after our visit with the Wasilewski’s to the always popular Dumbarton Oaks, to work on my wall. It is ~95% done (sneak preview here) now all I have to do is actually hang my photos. I’m eager to get my work up on the wall and not have to think about it anymore. There were A LOT of blank walls, so I expect it will be a last minute crunch to get all the work done before the opening on the 29th. But alas the weekend has come to an end, one more day would be lovely, but it is not to be.
