Last night, Ben and I fancied up and caught the metro into the nation’s capital. We ate a wonderful dinner at District Commons, a nice restaurant we stumbled upon in Foggy Bottom.
For starters: a hot pretzel baguette. Anytime someone wants to bring me a large, hot pretzel baguette feel free. Ben had a flatbread and I tried the roasted portobello topped with quinoa and it is safe to say we could go for seconds on both.
After dinner, we headed off to the Kennedy Center where we had a few minutes to kill before curtain call.
It was our first time at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and it was beautiful! I have seen the Lion King once before on Broadway, but I still acted like a small child. I know just about every word to every song and kept nudging Ben while pointing at all the animals and different sets. All in all, I would say it was the greatest of nights.
