Do You Like Concerts

…and getting caught in the rain?

My Butler apartment-mates and I found ourselves sitting on the Capitol Hill lawn taking in a concert from the National Symphony Orchestra. The concert began with the overture from Gypsy and then did a medley of South Pacific.

I was in musical theatre heaven.

But then the dark storm clouds rolled over the rotunda. I had brought only a jacket, and the other girls huddled under a blanket.  By the time intermission hit, so had the torrential downpour.

We sloshed several blocks back to the Metro, where I literally rung out my jacket. Ugh.

To make up for it, though, we changed clothes and headed to Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe in DuPont Circle for a sweet dessert. It’s a nifty little bookstore with killer food. It was surprisingly packed! Two thumbs for the fruit crumble and cinnamon ice cream.

PS – You can also read Katie’s version of these events (which includes 2 gentlemen on the metro who nearly asked for her number).
