efstewart So glad I finally got to see the fabulous "Ingenue to Icon" exhibit of Marjorie Merriweather Post's clothing at @hillwoodmuseum ! The exhibit clothing items will change w/the seasons for the next phase of the show on Oct. 1, so I'll definitely be back. (Didn't take photos of the amazing clothes. I bought the catalogue instead, which features wonderful photos by @reneecomet who beautifully captured the fantastic details in each piece.) 7h

efstewart One of my favorite DC murals, on Sunderland Place near #DupontCircle behind the wonderful @heurichhouse (who told me via Twitter that it is "'The Toy Theatre' by Peter Waddell & depicts Dupont in the 1870s."). #proscenium #mural #dc 3w

efstewart One of my favorite things about my neighborhood is being so close to this gorgeous statuary and the lovely fountain. So cool to think Daniel Chester French sculpted these figures in 1921, just a year after he created the Abraham Lincoln statue for the Lincoln Memorial. #dupontcircle 2mon

efstewart Thanks to The Grill Room at @capelladc for a great meal by Chef @frankruta , ending w/this fabulous dessert, "The Georgetowner" by Pastry Chef @AggieChin - Dark chocolate torte, coca nib marshmallow, milk chocolate bavarian, Caramelia namelaka, carmelized rice crispies--and buttered popcorn (!) ice cream. Wow. #georgetowndc #thegrillroomdc #ChefAggie 2mon

efstewart Also, a convincing Cher dancing w/sailors on a battleship float. #capitalpride #pridedc #dupontcircle 3mon
  •   planetmidori Are you sure it's not Cher? 3mon
  •   efstewart @planetmidori If it isn't Cher, I'm sure she is here in spirit! (If it is the "real" Cher, it would be the best thing that ever happened to Freddie's, the little bar in VA whose float that was!) 3mon

efstewart A lowkey immigration/refugee contingent was carrying signs including "First time marching without fear"--reminded me how far we've come here. #capitalpride #pridedc #dupontcircle 3mon

efstewart Happy #capitalpride everyone! Here's the site of DC's first LGBTQ Pride celebration in 1975: Hard to believe it was 40 years ago--What a party it was! I was there. And I moved to Dupont Circle in 1980, loving being in the center of the Gayborhood (which now seems to be an ephemeral concept, not a location, and I miss it). Amazed and grateful for the social change since then (and always sad and angry for all those we lost along the way). #pridedc #flashback40 #havepride365 #dupontcircle 3mon

efstewart Loved watching #itsmehilary on @HBO w/ @lenadunham -- inspired me to open all my Eloise books and be totally tickled by them for the billionth time. 5mon

efstewart Snowdrops in front of my house--every year when they come up, I like to snap them, thinking of our father, who loved to take photos of the ones in our backyard every year. Cheers, Pop! 6mon

  •   efstewart Thank you, @jimjacobs :-) 6mon
  •   isuarezcastano Aww covalaria maialis? 5mon
  •   efstewart @isuarezcastano Thanks! I had to Google that scientific name. It's for what we call "Lily of the Valley." The plant in my pic looks similar, but is different, called "snowdrop," scientific name, "Galantus." (Thank you, Google!) 5mon
  •   isuarezcastano I had to Google that one too. They're so lovely! @efstewart I love those kind of simple but so elegant spring little bulbs with white flowers. Sweet story BTW 5mon
  •   efstewart Thanks, @isuarezcastano 5mon
