Today hit 72 degrees in the park! Unfortunately the sun didn’t break out for us. The floating decks are gone for the season. Yoga anyway.

2014 parents weekend

We got to O Street at 6:30. The sun was setting and the street is filled with kids, vibrant and very much alive.

The school is building more dorms for the kids. The neighbors are complaining about them being too loud, which I think they’re not. Not sure the neighbor would feel the same once the kids are gone. After all, Georgetown University got there first. It looks like school doesn’t have the appetite to fight.

Adams Morgan is a culturally diverse neighborhood in Northwest Washington, D.C., centered at the intersection of 18th Street and Columbia Road. It’s pretty good nightlife.

Billy Martin’s Tavern

1264 Wisconsin Ave NW,
Washington, DC 20007

Brunch at the Nixon’s booth at is old world charm tavern. The oldest restaurant in DC run by family since 1933, the fourth generation. It’s tight space. The booth behind me has one side bench, like a classroom. The booth before me is Kennedy, reportedly he proposed to his future bride, Jackie O. George W Bush has a booth too. Good food, will return. 在乔治敦, 也是总统们喜欢的. 有 尼克松 肯尼迪 的座位. 有人称 JFK 在那里求婚 – 觉得不会 因为好像有书说是越洋电话.

As to the proposal booth, according to this New York Times obituary, JFK proposed to her over an phone call:

In 1953, while she was in London on assignment, Mr. Kennedy called her and proposed.

Paper Moon

1073 31st Street NW (by M Street)
Washington DC, 20007

I like their high ceiling, good service and decent food.

I called twice trying to make a reservation. First time was put on hold and the second time someone picked up but never said a word. It didn’t sound good so we decided to go elsewhere. But that elsewhere had closed down.
It’s Saturday evening and Georgetown is filled with parents like us, attending our child’s parents’ weekend, mixed with regular tourist. 31st Street NW off M Street is lined with restaurants (Ristorante Piccolo, Sea Catch and Cafe la Ruche). Then we passed by the Paper Moon and … decided to give it a try. As it turned out, they’re much better in person than on the phone.
