Date Night

Rudi and I headed to the Uptown, D.C.’s only old-fashioned single-screen movie theater still in existence, this evening for The Crimes of Grindelwald, which we enjoyed tremendously. I won’t share any details, except to say that all your favorite characters are back from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and that Jude Law does an excellent job as Dumbledore. We followed up the film with a late supper at a pan-Asian restaurant nearby, where they make a tremendous rainbow salad that I just adore. I also tried their rose black tea, which was very tasty, although I didn’t drink it fast enough for our waitress, who kept coming over to check on the water in the teapot.

I don’t have a lot else planned for this weekend, probably in part because all my days are weekends right now, which does remove some of the novelty and a lot of the urgency. If I get up early enough, there’s a new park opening near the center of the city with a dog parade planned to mark the occasion. There’s also a holiday pop-up shop that might be fun to take in. I also have a couple bike rides to libraries I’d like to get in, but if they get pushed off to the start of next week, it’s no loss. Mostly, though, I just want to get outside and soak up some of the predicted sunshine.

What do you hope to do this weekend?
