Arthur, Kate, and I went to the Folger to see a spectacular production of "Rosencrantz and Guldenstern are Dead."

Before going to the theater, we had a delicious lunch at the Sonoma Wine Bar. I had the most delicious omelette that I have ever had in my entire life. It was filled with ricotta. Yum!

DCEC Discovers a New Museum

The DC Explorers Club (formerly known as the DCDC) visited the Textile Museum on the GWU campus. We viewed the "Unraveling Identity: Our Textiles, Our Stories " exhibit and were entranced. Here are a photos of a few pieces.

Daoist Priest Robe


 Buddhist Pilgrim Jacket

After viewing the exhibit, we walked a few blocks to the Circa restaurant and had a wonderful lunch. Unfortunately, Mary was unable to join us because of a major snafu on the Metro system.

We began with a Wild Mushroom Flatbread: arugula, pesto, truffle oil, Gruyere, and Parmesan cheese. Excellent! 

My Quinoa Argula Salad with carrots, asparagus, goat cheese, and citrus vinaigrette. Delicious!
