Five Things for Today: February 10, 2021

             A view from within the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden


1. No more gazing in through the wrought iron bars of the fence…  The National Gallery of Art announced that it will reopen the  Sculpture Garden this Sunday, February 14 — just in time for a Valentine’s Day stroll.  Hours will be 11am -4pm daily. (FYI: For more Valentine’s Day activities, check out the round-up of local ways to celebrate, both in person and virtually.)


2.  A new IG to follow: Kid Safe DC,  launched by a group of DC-area pediatricians who are passionate about injury prevention. They are also hosting free virtual car seat safety checks this Saturday. You can schedule an appointment to meet one-on-one with a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician via Zoom.


3. Washingtonian has a round-up of restaurants with specials to celebrate the Lunar New Year, which is on Friday.


4. Rep. Jamie Raskin’s emotional speech yesterday is worth a watch.  This piece from The Atlantic nails why it resonates.


5. How awesome is Maketto?  (PS:  The restaurant is included in the round-up above, and I highly recommend it, whether you opt for the special meal now or their regular menu anytime — the food is amazing!)
