November Day in DC

Yep, we are still back in November, and pretending it’s fall – and also unseasonably warm – not a whole lot different from today, actually. I was wearing a winter coat two days ago, and it’s 76F now.

After the artist event, aside from going out for an exhausted celebratory dinner with Doug, and our guest, Susan, I took the next day off. Susan and I went into DC for a relaxing wander, lunch, and pokehunt. It was a pretty great day. First we went to Zengo for lunch. Zengo very recently closed, because of some lease dispute, and I will be hearbroken forever. Because of this, you get full-sized food pics instead of a collage.

Fried tofu. *sob*

Empanadas. *tears hair*
