Because I always start with the heat, today didn’t feel so bad ( heat advisory on from 2-7pm but ended early) We took the subway downtown and did not do any long walks, instead we used the Circulator ( a bus the basically circles around the core including Georgetown and Virginia where our hotel is AND it only costs $1 AND your fare is good for 2 hours #bestdeal)
We had timed tickets to start the day at the Spy Museum. We started with a “mission” that we had to solve in an hour, not the same as an escape room, more of a mystery with props. All of the kids in the group LOVED it. ” I think Topaz is a double agent” ” I think he’s double crossing the government” ” I know all about lie detectors ( and goes into exhausting detail of how they work)” 😂 then we spent 2 hours going through the museum. If you are a James Bond fan, this place is your Mecca!
Lunch was a non-Smithsonian Cafe on the sculpture garden grounds that brought back memories of Paris
We did the Hirshhorn Art Gallery after lunch. One installation was done all with radiating straight and wavy lines made with a Sharpie on 2 tone painted walls. It was HUGE and was the entire inner circumference of the gallery #futuregoals
Dinner was at Good Stuff Eatery ( the Obama’s favourite) Top Chef alum Spike Mendelsohn’s place #omg #bestburgersever #bacononbacon
