    By the "art park" do you mean the Sculpture Garden at the National Gallery of Art? https://www.nga.gov/visit/sculpture-garden.html

    Or is there something similar at the National History museum?

    Both.

    The sculpture garden is located in between NGA and Natural History. But yes, NGA owns it.

    What I don't know is how they get sculptures to grow like that.

Plus there is a Slipstream coffee/wine cafe on the adjacent block with likewise inexpensive prices coffee/treats.

    I'm always up for activities in the CapHill/Navy Yard area, but I would not call anything that comes from Slipstream "inexpensive"

    Default Weekly Coffee Gatherings

    Itís official: Cosi in Crystal City, cold/nasty weather home of CCCC on Tuesdays, is no more.

    Starbucks at 23rd and Crystal Drive is the replacement spot for CCCC at the moment, I suppose.

    I gather the Wednesday coffee club at Best Buns has resumed (outdoors with distancing). Any others? Might be nice to have a master list.

    Since few of us are commuting downtown at the moment, I assume FCC is still off.

    I've been past Best Buns on a couple of recent rides. Best Buns was doing curbside business. All the outdoor furniture was stacked up inside the Carlyle restaurant space. I don't think HDCC can resume yet.

    We tested it out on Wednesday this past week and I think it went well...
    We sat in the breezeway next to Guapos...there was a nice breeze and we sat 6ft or more apart.

    We also did an impromptu of Coffee at Whole Foods (WTFCC) and sat outside there too...

    I will be attempting all of them next week:

    Monday at Swings
    Tuesday at the Water Park in Crystal City
    Wednesday at Best Buns (breezeway) in Shirlington
    Thursday at Whole Foods in Pentagon City

    Come out and join us if you can and feel comfortable doing so...

    Is that still targeting 7am timeframe? (Man I've forgotten how to set my alarm clock that early, with teleworking starting at 8am for the last 15 weeks!!)
