Meet me by the graffiti
Boy, as soon as I saw one notice yesterday for the opening of Wall Snatchers tonight, it was suddenly all over the interweb. Looks like it'll be a pretty crowded show. I'll be there with my funky dj friend, who will no doubt lend me some street cred as I check out the street art in my law firm issue oxford and sweater vest. As if I could add to the maximum oxymoron-ism already established by having a graffiti exhibit in Georgetown.
I asked my friend if he wanted to cab over, to which he replied, "Don't you use the Circulator? Learn it, live it, love it." The what? The Circulator! Who knew there was some easy, cheap way to get across the city! I guess this bus, which costs one measly dollar (with your SmarTrip, if you want) and stops about every three blocks, has been around for about a year, but they're just starting to do some advertising push. Turns out it stops right in front of my office building on K and it'll drop me off right on Wisconsin and M. Man, I love this city more and more everyday.
Speaking of my own personal arts agenda, I'll also be checking out the Project 4 Gallery opening at 9th and U St. How could I not go when I can practically see the gallery from my front steps? Chai will be joining me and it's more than a possibility we'll roll out the night with some chili cheese fries. Mmmm....Ben's....
Update: While we're on the arts, please please go see Hiroshi Sugimoto's exhibit at the Hirshhorn. His photographs are just fantastic...If I could afford real art, this is exactly the kind of stuff I'd want to look at everyday. Am I above pimping myself? No, I don't think I am.
