1. The National Museum of Women in the Arts recently reopened after a two-year renovation. The redesigned spaces are lovely, more open and light-filled, perfect for showcasing the permanent collection and a fantastic exhibition currently on view. The Sky’s the Limit features large-scale installations that are delightful, thought-provoking, beautiful, and some on display for the first time ever. A great time to visit the museum is on one of their Free Community Days on the first Sunday and second Wednesday of the month, when there is no admission, though you do still need timed tickets. They tend to get snatched up, so find a date that works and reserve yours! Otherwise, admission is $16/adult, $13/DC residents, free for ages 21 and under. Hours are 10am – 5pm, Tuesday – Sunday. I’d recommend the museum for older kids, tweens and up.
2. Chanukah begins tomorrow evening, and if you’re looking for ways to celebrate throughout the eight days and nights, the KFDC Holiday Guide has a whole section of things to do, from the National Menorah Lighting to smaller menorah lightings to ice skating parties to theatre productions…and more!
3. I just wrote about my first taste of Love, Makoto, the Japanese food hall that opened last spring. Have you been?
4. Latest and greatest TV binge: Squid Game: The Challenge, thanks to Darcy’s recommendation (see below). Anyone else watching it? Can’t wait for the finale tonight!
