mlk day of service.

Spent a cold morning picking up trash in one section of Rock Creek Park this morning. Our section featured a community garden and horse stable, along with a winding path along a creek. Beautiful in its own way, even in winter. Nice work to the person with the makeshift hothouse and winter kale.

Thanks to Rock Creek Conservancy for organizing.

This is only a small portion of what the group amassed. All of this is filled with one bag here, one can there — it adds up. And yes, that is a hubcap. Sad.

baltimore + farm to table.

Did Baltimore brunch at Woodberry Kitchen today. Best restaurant I’ve been to in months (apart from Primo in Rockland, Maine). I’ve been underwhelmed by DC’s supposedly fine dining lately, so hope this is the start of a turnaround…just wish it were a little closer than Baltimore. Love what they stand for and love even more that they deliver delicious food in an aesthetically inviting atmosphere.

Another bonus: the bathrooms are wallpapered with old issues of Gourmet.
