Last Saturday we went to the Wine and Food Festival at the National Harbor. We were going to go with some friends we haven't seen in awhile, but things came up, as the always do. We were bummed we didn't get to spend time with Jen and Steve, but we enjoyed ourselves none the less. And while we enjoyed ourselves, we are very glad that we got discounted tickets and did not pay full price. Between all the samples of food, wine tastings, and the 2 free beers each**, we got our monies worth. However, I'm not so sure that it would have been worth $70 each had we paid full price.
**Really? Go to a Wine Festival and get tickets for 2 free beers? Why can't I get tickets for 2 free glasses of wine. You know, have a taste test at all the vendors and then decide which one I want to drink a whole glass of? Yeah, didn't make sense to us either....but we sure drank them!
The Awakening Sculpture...used to be at Haines Point. This is the first time we've seen it in it's new location. I'm kind of partial...I liked it better at Haines Point.
Marc and Sofie in the beer line.
Sofie and I sitting in the shade. Marc had gone to get another sample. The entire time he was gone Sofie kept scanning the crowd trying to find him.
