wizards game stub hub review

During our recent visit to D.C., Sheena mentioned wanting to see an NBA game. With the chilly weather and our great location about 5 blocks from the Verizon Center, catching a game kept us inside and warm. Plus cheap, thanks to StubHub. After sorting seats by price, we found some great $11 tickets that we easily printed.

Living in a recently developed neighborhood surrounded by partially developed but mostly now abandoned woods, Sheena suggested we go berry gathering around her place, so last night D and I brought over a half gallon ice cream bucket, and the three of us went into the woods.

The trees were thinned enough to allow light. The grass varied from calf to armpit high on me. It was a berry lovers paradise.
