For those interested, I’m planning a Wordherder outing to the Ballet mécanique (see details here) and Dada exhibit at the National Gallery on March 18. If you are interested in participating (friends of the Herd are always welcome, which includes out-of-town bloggers who might be in town), please leave a comment below or send me an email. There are two options here, which I’ll outline below the jump:

Option 1: We meet at 12:30 so that we can catch the 1 pm cacophony, then go see the Dadaist exhibit for a certain length of time (which we would agree upon beforehand – probably no more than an hour, maybe two), with a late lunch / early dinner at a restaurant of our choice.

Option 2: People go through the Dada exhibit on their own before we all meet at 1pm, at which point we watch the show and then go get lunch at a restaurant of our choice. This adds flexibility for those who might want to see the show, but have little interest in the Dada exhibit.

For food, we’ll probably do something in either Adam’s Morgan or Chinatown, since the area around National Gallery is pretty devoid of restaurants unless we want to go somewhere like the Capitol Grille (I sure don’t). A best bet would include a good place for a group-feast (Ethiopian, Chinese, Indian, etc.) and/or something relatively inexpensive (hopefully, both). I haven’t checked prices at
Fasika’s lately, but that might be a good option. I’m open to others, however.

Include your preference of either option 1 or 2 in your comment please.

    Option 1 sounds good to me. I’m certainly happy to go to Fasika’s, but all of the above food options (other than the Capitol Grille) sound enticing.

    Yeah, Option #1 works for me, too. Food choices abound if we leave the area, and I’m game for all of it.

    Count us in, at least tentatively. I don’t think we have a strong preference on the options. Jason, will you send out a reminder closer to the date?

  4. Jason says:

    Sounds like option 1 is the preference so far… and yes – I’ll be sure to post (and likely email) a reminder as the date gets closer.

    I think we’re in as well. I’ve got a meeting until noon that day, but we can probably make it before the 1 PM showing to meet up with y’all.
