A long-planned long weekend visit to DC to check out Harper's Ferry and Antietam in a few days has been infuriatingly stymied by the shutdown. The plan had been to go see a lot of stuff related to John Brown's Raid, Civil War battlefields, and African American art housed at the National Gallery. The trip was in part to do research for a creative writing project about Mr Brown, and part for some general shenanigans. Now what?

Hello D.C. Mefites. Later this month I'll have half a Monday to spend in D.C. The rest of the week I'm working until dinner time.
I'm flying into Reagan around noon on a Monday. I'd like to cram as much Capital type stuff into the afternoon as I can. Any suggestions on what to do? A friend has suggested I rent a bike and cruise around the Mall, monuments, etc.
Also, I run and would like to run two or three time the week I'm there. Any suggested multi-mile routes near the Pentagon or Crystal City area? I'm completely unfamiliar with the area, but would really like to avoid the hotel treadmill. posted by tayknight around Washington, DC at 12:36 PM - 10 answers

DC/Northern Virginia experts: The other half and I have our first kid-free date night since, uh...too long. We're flexibile on dining options but I would like to find an awesome dessert place. We wouldn't mind driving someplace separate after dinner. The wrinkle is that this is for Sunday night (with a late start due to babysitting scheduling), and we'd like to avoid cupcakes. Hope us? posted by QuantumMeruit around Washington, DC at 7:56 AM - 10 answers
