There is training money this year at Jefferson Lab and so next week I will be attending a class sponsored by the folks at Congressional Quarterly November 14-16, and so am looking for recommendations on places to eat that I can afford on federal per diem (preferably without a drive-thru!) or at least that won't break the bank. I will be staying with friends in University Park and my class is in the Hall of the States. I am really looking forward to the trip since besides learning some new tricks of the trade, I get to visit with Linda, a good friend who helped me get my current job at Jefferson Lab, and I will get to visit with my son Gavin who moved to Rockville in early summer and works near Dupont Circle. So if you have some great little places frequented by natives, or great ethnic foods, or any little shops I should check out, please let me know, because all work and no play... well, you know!
