Early fall is always an interesting time in DC. It’s no secret that the city all but shuts down in August, and as September nears, the kids return to school (hello, morning commute!), Congress reconvenes, and it’s back to the grind for everyone.
It’s kind of like the Sunday night after a really fun weekend—except, unlike Mondays, autumn’s cooler weather (we can eat outside again!) and fresh start bring a little more energy and excitement. As I look at the pages of this issue, I’m inspired by what’s to come.
I’m so looking forward to the opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture—surely one of the most important cultural happenings of the year. Family-style dining is on the menu at a handful of DC favorites, and I plan to try (or retry) them all.
Outdoor entertaining is one of my favorite things this time of year, and I’ve got my eye on re-creating that cozy rooftop on page 75 at my own home. And as fall’s fashion season commences, I can’t wait to check out the adorable new boutiques popping up around town and stock up on all the stylish suede hitting shelves now.
If only Sunday nights came with the same promise of fall fun, Mondays would have an entirely different reputation. Here’s to new beginnings—and impeccably timed traffic.
