    {travel} christine and phillip in DC: visiting museums and zaytina

    April 25, 2017

    When I visited DC two years ago, I was amazed by the museums. Not only was I excited that there were so many located next to each other, I was surprised that they were free to visit. I mean all the museums in the bay area cost at least $15 for one person! Back then, I even jokingly told myself that it was be great to live in DC if I was dating someone because I’d just go to museum dates every weekend. Fast forward to this year, and I got to visit DC and go on a museum date with my boyfriend. πŸ™‚

    Out of all the museums I visited with Starr before, my favorite was the National Air and Space Museum. Since Phillip didn’t get to check out this museum during his last trip to DC, that’s where we went!

    I didn’t get to take many pictures because I was too busy reading the labels of every exhibit. πŸ™‚

    Starr had suggested we check out the National Gallery of Art, and wow!

    The lush indoor gardens was so pretty! I think we spent the longest there just admiring theΒ plants, taking photos, and enjoying that natural light.

    We finished walking around the art museum and headed over to Zaytinya because we had dinner plans with Will. Zaytinya is one of Jose Andres restaurants, and some even call it his DC jewel.

    They start off your meal with this fluffy pita bread.

    With dinner, we ordered a carafe of Pom Fili, which was a specialty cocktail made with white wine, vodka, and pomegranate. It definitely paired well with all the Greek food we ate!
