1. I have almost all the tickets and reservations made for Ed and Mike's visit next week. I just need to buy tickets for the hop on hop off bus in New York City. We have a good week planned with touring Maryland and Washington, D.C. and with day trips to Philadelphia and New York.
2. The Deke and I relaxed at DC Brau late in the afternoon, slow drinking some beer and, once the room emptied out, we had a great conversation with our tap master, Mike, who told us about his days as a third grade teacher in Washington, D. C.'s Petworth neighborhood.
3. We finished the evening with a bowl of popcorn.
