A Few Favorites


Freer Sackler Gallery
If you are in the Washington DC area plan a visit to the Freer Sackler Gallery (Smithsonian Museum of Asian Art) to see the Roads to Arabia exhibit. Here you will find archaeological and historical artifacts from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. These beautiful objects will be on display until February 24, 2013, a definite must see.

Grace’s Mandarin
After a busy afternoon of museum hopping or even shopping, you have to try the salt & pepper chicken wings or the pan-fried calamari from Grace’s Mandarin at the National Harbor. There is a three-story waterfall, a 33-foot Buddha and a spectacular view of the Potomac River. The décor is an exquisite red which reminds me of the shops and streets of Shanghai.

Saks Salon & Spa
Having regular facial treatments with Quy from the Saks Salon and Spa at Tysons II is a definite must. She is a fabulous aesthetician and a consummate professional. Always willing to share her beauty techniques and wisdom with all who are devoted to maintaining their complexions. My visits to the Spa are a wonderfully relaxing treat. Book your session soon!!!

  1. Hello,
    Very nice indeed. It’s as if you’ve mapped out a day of relaxation with the fine arts, good food and treating oneself to facials and other beauty remedies. Notwithstanding, listening to really good, smooth jazz while you venture out. What a nice time that would be……………….
