Had a wonderful weekend with the family in town. My parents enjoyed a relaxing weekend with wonderful weather and we went to the Newseum and walked around the monuments. Although going to the monuments is nothing original, this was the weekend we all wanted to be outside. We got to have dinner at Old Ebbitt Grill, a tradition of ours and a highly recommended restaurant for anyone who lives in or visits Washington. I even took my brother for a drink at Crystal City Sports Pub. He was surprised to see they allowed smoking in the bars there but I informed him that a smoking ban is taking effect at the end of the year in Virginia. There is a smoking ban in the bars in Massachusetts. Other than that he thought CC Sports Pub was a really cool place and wishes there was a bar just like that in the Merrimack Valley in Massachusetts! These trips are always too short but there is always the next one to look forward to.
