A Night on the Town

There are moments when it's nice to stop the hustle and bustle, forget the to-do list and simply soak up the beauty and fun that DC has to offer.

Now that Congress is back in session and schedules are more full, those moments are harder to find, but the silver lining is the fact that there are many more evening events.

The Mississippi Society held a reception for our board members and corporate sponsors with a rooftop party at BGR.  The fall weather was perfect and I loved being able to watch the sun set over the Washington Monument while watching planes land at Reagan.



 

The food was exceptional: crab cake sandwiches, mini BBQ sandwiches, spring rolls, chicken biscuits and macaroni and cheese.


 We stayed until the very end!

Since we metroed into Union Station to get home, Kern and I decided to stop by another party that he had been invited to: a celebration of our Olympic Athletes.

We waltzed into a party with a DJ, air hockey tables, Olympic athletes everywhere and amazing food.
We didn't know anyone there.  We may or may not have hit the dance floor anyway.

 Look!  The Olympic torch!


It was a great way to celebrate all the people who worked so hard to represent the United States this summer.  I was relieved to see the athletes (somewhat) partaking in all the tempting junk food.  Although I certainly felt short next to the girls from the rowing team!
