Today is First Friday

Perhaps you’re like me and weary of the final work day of the week (perhaps you’re luckier and you’ve already left the office, you slacker). Post 3pm on a Friday afternoon in Washington (isn’t it almost recess for those crazy kids on the Hill too?) is snoozeville. So in daydreaming about potential activities tonight and how wonderful it would be if I were a carefree artist I remembered it’s the first Friday of the month – which means party time in Dupont’s art galleries, with most places open until 8pm or so!

Be sure to check out my absolute favorite small gallery, the Kathleen Ewing. Ask to see Rosamund Purcell’s amazing portfolio of photographs and let them mess with your mind. Then head out for an infused vodka at the luxe Russia House and pretend you have the moxie to be a collector. Sigh. Someday.
