Georgetown Cupcake

3301 M Street NW
(corner of 33rd & M)

Is it really delicious, worth waiting for hours? Ummmm … I don’t think so. But their cupcakes do taste pretty good. So to avoid waiting on line, you can order online.

It’s at Dupont Circle, 2 steps from the Freshfarm Market. They assess $20 per room per night resort fee or room fee. Not sure this considers cheating – the extra $22.90 (with tax)  – a little surprise after check in. They’ve rooms available, ranging $149-$249, average $200 a night.

Dean & DeLuca

On M Street in Georgetown. This is a chain store, ready eat, upscale. Their first one was set in New York City (SoHo district) by partners Joel Dean, Giorgio DeLuca and Jack Ceglic in September 1977.

New York, is just simply the best

My child received couple of roses at the graduation and I debated if to bring them home because they didn’t look too good. But my mother-in-law convinced me that a little water would do wonder.

The last day

Bye bye Georgetown, for now. It’s the moving out day but there are many events going on at the school.

… clean out the house.

There are more events to attend but we skipped: we’re all well spent. We dropped off our child at the airport. I walked the Key bridge for the last time, for the time being.

DC Freshfarm Market

We’ve visited this Dupont Circle market in Feb during the senior weekend. The weather’s the same: cloudy mixed with drizzling, unfortunately. I so hoped for a clear blue skies.

Many vendors are still there and a few aren’t. The old sea captain is again, stirring his multiple pots.

The dumpling guys are there but the coffee guys aren’t – I’ve hoped to see them there and try their geisha beans.

The commencement

Finally, at last, we get to attend the commencement when and where they’ll receive their degrees. It’s at Leavey Center ballroom. The ensemble is phenomenal, they serenade us with Beethoven‘s No 5 (4th movement). Could there be any better ending than this – I always feel his music is about overcoming and triumph. The commencement book is thick as a tome. The kids came in before their professors/faculties – the music is just marvelous. Thanks for giving us a memorable and wonderful ending.

A reception is followed. The weather is bit cold and rainy.

I walked by this church a few times. The home page of the church displays Pastor Rev. Adam Y. Park, an Asian. Here is an reporting by the Washington Post in 2006, oral history ‘We’re Still Here’.
