Last week while I was on a girls beach trip, there was an awesome blogger event for Tech and Travel DC at The Willard Intercontinental Hotel in DC. I didn't want to miss out on all the fun, so I sent my super cute boyfriend downtown in a Reston Limo to go hang with my blogger girlfriends (and Phil!) for the afternoon. Not a bad gig to fill in for me!
How gorgeous in the grand entrance to the hotel? Lovely setting for a luncheon! The Willard Intercontinental Hotel has been a national treasure for almost 200 years as it has been the focal point for many historic events and has hosted almost every US President since Franklin Pierce in 1853. I'm hoping to return to check it out for a family staycation as The Willard has recently launched a children's program for this summer.
So while he ate "quakers" with Kim and enjoyed his grilled shrimp, I asked him to take some notes on the hottest gadgets for the summer.
