2021 Washington DC - Day 10

Sharon and I cooked breakfast at the hotel. One of the advantages of the AKA Whitehouse is that it is essentially a small apartment with a kitchen and living room.

After breakfast, Sharon and I took a power walk to the World War II Memorial on the Mall. We walked back around the back of the White House. It is sad how much fencing there is now around the White House.

We headed towards Jack's apartment in the middle of the day. We had some struggles finding a parking spot. Grabbing Jack, we walked to lunch at Sorellina. I had a LYNN [salami, pepperoni, ham, provolone, iceberg lettuce, tomato, onion, house vinaigrette, sub roll], Jack had Eggs tacos [Scrambled organic eggs, red onion, jalapeƱo, salsa, queso fresco], and Sharon had Chicken tinga tacos [Shredded organic chicken, queso fresco, red onion, cilantro].

The plan for the afternoon was helping Jack organize his studio apartment. While I tried to take a long nap, Sharon worked on the kitchen and framed a couple of Jack's art posters. The two of them ordered a desk, work chair, bed frame and some screens online. Jack and I put together some storage cubes from Ikea.

From there, we walked to Sophia's house in Georgetown. Sharon wanted to see her new kitten.

Sharon, Jack and I had dinner at Bar Charley. For appetizers, we split crispy brussel sprouts [olive and caper relish, almonds, parmesan] and fried oysters [creole aioli, parsley, lemon]. For entrees, Sharon had a new york strip [12oz pained hills strip, cafe de paris, gilfeather turnips, asparagus], Jack had a charley burger [wagyu beef, cheddar, truffle aioli, caramelized onion, arugula, fries], and I had marinated skirt steak [bok choy and cucumber salad, sesame, peanut]. While not the best meal that we had during the trip, I enjoyed the food and the cocktails.

After dinner, we walked back to where I had parked the car earlier in the day. We dropped Jack at Sophia's place in Georgetown and then headed back to the hotel. We crashed a little after 11 pm.
