When you’re ready to break for a bite, try The Source by Wolfgang Puck, just around the corner from the Newseum. While enjoying the Asian-influenced dishes and the choice of more than 300 types of wines, you might just find yourself sitting next to famous DC power players and journos.
From there, take a stroll up Pennsylvania Avenue to the National Portrait Gallery to see the installation “The Network,” a video portrait featuring group interviews with politicians, journalists, scientists and innovators.
You’ll want to stay close to the story, and lucky for you, the Loews Madison Hotel is located just across the street from The Washington Post offices.
