anniversary celebration

YBW and I celebrated our anniversary in DC on Sunday with tickets for the World Premiere of Beetlejuice The Musical!

First we stopped at Round Robin Bar in the beautiful Willard for preshow cocktails.

We had a lovely chat and enjoyed people watching before we walked over to the National.

Orchestra seats were great!
There was an absolute buzz in the theater! I mean really, you could feel the anticipation in the air!
I’m going to go out on a limb and tell you that I loved loved loved this show!
The music was exactly what it needed to be. The actors were spot on. Costumes great. And the set! The set was spectacular!
So many great lines and visual gags, so many F words and gestures.
I have to say that one of my favorite moments was when Beetlejuice pulled a yarmulke from his pocket and placed it on his head before the wedding. This guy who so blatantly disregards any sort of propriety must cover his head before the wedding?!?! It played well for me, but ‘I myself am strange and unusual’.
If you’re planning to see it when it hits Broadway in the Spring, you won’t be disappointed!

It was cool and cloudy, but still a great day to walk around town.
After we left the theater, we were a bit early for our dinner reservations, YBW wanted to people watch down at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. He wanted to see what all the protesters had to say on that day.
I’m just reading the signs that pretty much say F**k Tr**p and thinking that if you’re going to sit outside someone’s house and protest them, you might consider being a more creative with your signs. I don’t know, perhaps that’s just me.

We arrived at Woodward Table and our table wasn’t ready yet so we decided to hang out in the bar for a bit. I went quickly to the ladies room and when I came back around the other end of the bar I heard the sound of a cork popping!
I looked at YBW and pointed at myself mouthing the words, “Is that for me?” He grinned an nodded.
When I sat down next to him, he said, “I was going to wait for you, but then I realized we needed some bubbly.”
(He was right!)

Delicious cheese board before dinner and a beautiful Autumnal menu made for a wonderful dinner.
Of course no dinner is complete without one of these.

What a lovely day!
