A convention in DC? Imagine that!
Is anyone planning on checking out The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show this weekend at the Wash. Convention Center? I heard about it a little while ago and forgot about it til an e-mail reminder today. It looks like it could be fun, at least just to look at the exhibitor floor. The special events don’t seem so great, unless you wanna squeeze in to see the Deen boys or pony up for the beer/wine tastings. I just want to bring the camera and look at all the shiny food & food gadget porn!
I’ve never been to an event at the new convention center, I’ve only been inside to peek at it since I used to live just down the street and it made for a good walk. It’s fun some evenings to see the conventioneers in their badges wandering out into the night trying to find their way down to Chinatown for food just as the boys, bears and ladies heading out to the Eagle are making the trek from their parking spaces and drawing interesting (and interested) glances.
