Fall has been busy, as I traveled to Paris to bid on the Gay Games with Mayor Muriel E. Bowser, DC council members Jack Evans and Brandon T. Todd and DC’s Bid Committee. Thank you to the committee for all their hard work, and congratulations to Hong Kong on winning the bid to host the event in 2022. After the bid, I joined the tourism team on successful sales and media missions to China and Brazil.
As we prepare for winter, washington.org is filled with content that shows visitors how to make the most of the season in the nation’s capital. Our dining content is also refreshed, as we celebrate the release of our city’s second Michelin Guide and DC’s continuing emergence as a culinary capital.
I hope to see you tomorrow at Member Trivia Night at Pinstripes in Georgetown. On Friday, the Museum of the Bible opens in DC, adding yet another exciting attraction to our city.
Finally, happy Thanksgiving! I am very thankful for your membership and participation in making Washington, DC a top destination for visitors.
