Last night, I met my friend Sylvia in the Kogod Courtyard adjoining the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery. We had originally planned to see--or rather thought we would be seeing--part of the DC Fotoweek exhibit going on all over the city in galleries and museums this week. Alas, what we saw was a slide show of photos from the exhibit and listened to the jazz renderings of a group called The Lovejoy Group as part of the museum's weekly Take Five! series.
It wasn't bad, but it wasn't what either of us expected. (And I still have no idea if my two photos I submitted ever made it into the exhibit. I never received a confirmation email from the organizers. But I have managed to garner 12 separate Evite emails from them inviting me to tomorrow night's closing fete at the National Georgaphic for $85 a pop! In the immortal words of someone: "I don't think so.") We ended up decamping to IHOP out in the states for a plate of pork chops (Sylvia) and pumpkin pancakes (me.) That did live up to expectations!
