DC

I'm going to be in Fairfax next week, for four days. The big problem with my business trips is the lack of daytime free time. Last week, I intended to go up to the city and hit the Smithsonian or one of the monuments. Didn't happen. Closest I got to playing tourist was going to the Springfield Mall.

Any DC-area folks have ideas of what I can do in the evenings next week? It seems such a waste to spend four days in DC and not actually go to DC except to catch a plane.

I work in Reston - can you have lunch one day? Other than that, in DC I'd recommend the museum of natural history (DINOSAURS!!) Air and Space, Modern Art .... really just walking around on foot should net you tons of cool stuff to do. I don't recommend the capitol tours, as they're pretty boring. :) Jefferson is my favorite monument, and Arlington Cemetery is pretty sobering if you feel like travelling out there. Oldtown Alexandria is good for shopping ... the list goes on and on. :)

Lunch
I'm not sure what my schedule will be, but I'll be online in the evenings. I think Thursday is flexible, if you're free. Kind of weird, I've never met anyone from LJ, only introduced people to it. :-)

Re: Lunch
Just email me - kit at forevervain dot com that day and we'll set something up. :) I almost never go out for lunch, and dont' have any evening plans, so I can do something on the fly.

Re: Lunch
Nah, he says I don't get out enough as it is. :) If I miss you this time I'll just catch you the next, tho.

Re: Lunch
It looks like I'll be out that way a few times a year now. Of course, the trips to Hawaii this fall are calling me...
