After a bonkers, non-stop six weeks of work, I took three days for myself and bounced up to NYC for a little decompression time. The Mapplethorpe exhibition at the Guggenheim, a photowalk around Harlem, a morning at the Met Cloisters, and time with lots of friends made for a nice time.

The Library of Congress is one of DC's hidden-in-plain-sight gems that's often overlooked by locals and tourists alike. Twice each year, on Presidents Day and Columbus Day, the Library of Congress opens its Main Reading Room to the public.
Climate change seriousness aside, I've got Z E R O complaints about a sunny 70º day in the middle of February. Today was basically the perfect day for an Instameet with @IGDC and @VisitWashingtonDC.
