We went to the National Harbor this weekend. The intention was to go to the jazz festival that was happening there but we left the house too late, fumbled with other stuff and got there around 6 or so.
That wouldn’t be so bad in itself but once we got there, we couldn’t find the venue. There were signs to be sure but they ALL said “make U-turn, then follow the signs”. We made the first U-turn, got to the next sign which said “make a U-turn” which sounded quite fishy. But wWe made a couple more U-turns (what do they say about insanity?) and when the next sign said the same thing we just parked in a garage and tried walking.
The parking attendant pointed us in the general direction of the venue and we followed his instructions until we got to the water and the path ended. Then we stopped.
Our friends were already at the concert and told us that it was basically a ghost town and not worth the $25 that we were ready to pay as soon as we found the freakin’ place. But we didn’t find it so we decided to just have dinner instead.
I was excited to try Rosa Mexicano since the one downtown DC is so popular. And that’s where the positives pretty much end.
We had to wait 45 minutes for a table, the service was unbelievably slow, we were starving by the time we sat down and the chips and salsa were $3.99. When the food came, most of it was dry from sitting under the heating lamp and the portions were about half of what you would get at, say, Chevy’s.
But, overall, good times because the light in the marina was amazing and I got to take some cool pictures.
