Unexpected bursts of color on city walls are one of my favorite type of surprises. I was walking through Eastern Market this past weekend and was delighted to find this beautifully adorned wall. The colorful mural was painted by Aniekan Udofia on the William H. Rumsey Aquatic Center located in the Capitol Hill community. The center was closed for business when I passed by but with a facade like this, it is easy to imagine all the fun that must go on inside!

Locals Luv: Poste Moderne Brasserie

IMG_2378Tuna Tartare

I had the pleasure of dining at Poste Moderne Brasserie a few weeks ago. I had read great reviews about its Executive Chef and Seasonal menu so I was curious to try it out myself. My meal of choice was brunch and I ordered a mix of classics and specialty dishes.

The presentation of each dish was unique to food and everything tasted very good. I especially enjoyed the Tuna Tartare, which was prepared with a hint of garlic, tonnato sauce, fennel and light potato strings. It had a fresh, mild taste and the potato strings served as a great compliment to the Tuna.

Cherry Blossom floral hat

IMG_2823I really enjoy wearing hats, especially fancy vintage ones. I bought this this floral vintage hat two years ago because it reminded me of the Cherry Blossoms that bloom every Spring in Washington D.C. (more…)

I was down with the horrible flu for 5 days but upon rising from my sick bed I realized that Spring has Sprung! The weather is becoming cheerful and mild and I couldn’t be more pleased about it.
