I’ve decided to keep an account of my time on the road with Dirty Dancing! Feel free to follow and travel around the US with me! I’ll be posting highlights from each city.
Venue: The National Theatre
Audiences were really receptive and super enthusiastic. I’ll never forget one night - these two women had two giant 5 foot Patrick Swayze head posters that they were waving wildly at the curtain call of the show. You could say they were fans.
Favorite Eats: Ebenezer’s Coffeehouse
My favorite thing to do on a day off (Monday) is generally to find a quiet spot to sit and enjoy a few hours of solitude and a good cup of coffee. This was the perfect spot for that! (2nd st NE and F st)
Sights: Capital Bikeshare
I found the best way to see DC was through the city bike system. For $25 you can get a month membership with Capital Bikeshare. You get a snazzy device that looks like a USB drive which you use to unlock a bike from the numerous stations located around the city. For the adventurer, this mode of transportation is ideal! It also made for a fun commute to work.
