My favorite time of year in the DC area is now! It's getting warmer, the days are longer, but it's not muggy and buggy yet.
A couple of weekends ago, Mike and I wanted to check out the installation piece at the Hirshhorn Museum called Song 1 by Doug Aitken.
Of course, we had to wait till it got dark out, so we sat at the bar at the newly renovated Jaleo. I had been to the Crystal City location once before, but this time, getting recommendations from our knowledgeable bartender, I was really blown away. The cheese and charcuterie plate was amazing, and the multiple tapas dishes we order were all scrumptious in their own unique way.
The best part was a cocktail called The Last Word, and the house made flan to complete our meal.
We then headed to the Hirshhorn and immediately I was mesmerized by the 360-degree projection film that encompasses the entire circular building. It truly is a beautiful piece, and this is the FINAL WEEKEND! So if you haven't already, go see this piece! And hit up Jaleo while you're at it!
