1st Day in DC, continued:

Much to my excitement, Tara father Marshal E. Purnell, FAIA [ of architecture firm Devrouax + Purnell ] had a bash at Busboys & Poets' 'Langston Room' sunday night. I swear it was the perfect blend of dancing-off grown folks + a family reunion + open bar.

What else could possibly matter:
Met some people - better yet, some inspiring people. These guys have been getting it done for a long time; great stories to tell.

After the lights went up and James Brown's final, "...say it loud" and the entire place - with clenched fists fixed high - yelling back, "...IM BLACK AND PROUD!" we headed back to home base for some more spiritual hydration.....
This is my Costanza + Air Mattress interpretation. Bess believe notes were taken all around.
Nydia crashed early because, "...dude, tuesday tuesday - it goes down on tuesday!". So Tara took sponsored our Dance Tour of DC [ Phase I ]....
As you guys can imagine - the entire city's in this euphoric-like trance. Well, at least the millions that commuted to DC for these few days. I counted at least 17 high fives between what seemed to be total strangers round about.

basically.
Collegiate? YES.
.....we kept party hopping:
oh my. it reappeared:
.....and immediately after devouring the empanadas i, of course, had to critique a Washington DC cheese 'Jumbo Slice':
Twas good. Aaaaaall of it. Im really feeling this city.
