Year of the Monkey

We haven't been to the Chinese New Year parade since 2013 so we decided to check it out again this year.

Since we were going to be in Gallery Place, we also decided to see Kung Fu Panda 3 after the parade.   We had some time to kill before the movie started, so we strolled over to the National Portrait Gallery and checked out some presidential portraits.  Turns out this one of George Washington will be gone by the end of the week for an 18 month examination and restoration, and won't be back on display until sometime in 2018 for the museum's 50th anniversary.

After the movie we had dinner at Clyde's before taking the Metro back home.  And oh, it just happened to also be Valentine's Day.  Cupid and a cosmo, that's how we roll.
