Hi, all, I'd greatly appreciate your help with this -- I've been asked to look into a venue for a private business for 10 to 12 people in DC. In the past, we've used a private room at the Tabard Inn, which fit all our needs, but we're disinclined to return for obvious reasons. Here are the criteria my boss has set: Spacious room: we're planning a three-hour lunch/discussion, so we'd like a room that's not mostly filled by the table. We'd like for people to be able to walk around the room as needed. Enclosed room: not merely separated from the main dining room by a curtain Windowed room (preferably) No pre-selection of entrees: we'd like to be able to order off a menu at the time of the lunch (though a constrained/limited lunch is fine) Cost: we're priced out of most hotels. We're willing to pay $250 or $500 for a room fee, but not $1,500. I think at Tabard we paid $250 for the room. Food: we're happy to order a three-course meal, but we don't need passed hors d'oeuvres or anything like that. Location: in/near downtown DC. Equipment: we don't need screens or projectors, but a conference phone would be nice. I have no idea if such a place exists, but I'd appreciate any leads you fine folks can give. Don, any thoughts? Thank you! Simon
"Andrew Wyeth: Looking Out, Looking In" now at the National Gallery until November 30, 2014. Call this show a retrospective of Wyeth's love of windows centered around his work Wind from the Sea. So, yes be prepared for room after room of moody atmospheric paintings of windows. What you are really looking for are the little moments - the gnarled wood of a window frame, the lines of leafless branches, the rough surface of stone, the winter light. It's a beautiful show...just a lot of windows.
Being in need of privacy in our newly purchased house I was referred to Window Wears by our realtor. I couldn't be happier with the result. The consultant (Bill) came to our house after work at 6:30 and was a true professional. Despite the late hour I didn't feel rushed nor did he push any certain product on us to try and make a higher profit. We picked out what we wanted, he measured the windows and we got a call two weeks later that our custom shades were in. The installers came to our house on a Saturday and had all 6 windows done in under 45 minutes. Total cost for beautiful window shades complete with decorative tapes? $995. Put simply, it's perfect, the company is flexible and professional and their work is immaculate. We plan on using them again for our rooms upstairs once we save up the money. 1601 18th St NW #1 Washington, DC 20009 (202) 265-1009 Tommy Flaherty
