One of the great things about having people visit from out of town, is that you really take advantage of things to do in the area. My lil' sister came to visit me from Colorado and we had an action packed time. Friday I went to see Neko Case at the Black Cat with a friend, while Mike took Kia to Twins Jazz on U street.
Saturday we headed to the Freer Gallery for an event called Asia after Dark. This was my first time at this gallery, and although we didn't have a whole lot of time to check out the artwork, we saw a few pieces that made me to want to return. The theme was A Tribute to Japanese Art and Fashion - check out these costumes.
On Sunday we checked out the swanky P.O.V - a rooftop bar in the W Hotel, known for its spectacular view of the White House and the city. The drinks are $15 a pop, but the views and the fresh air make it worth checking out. AND we shared the BEST brownie EVER!
My allergies have been something fierce this week, but I'm so glad I rallied to show my sis a good time.
