During our visit to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History & Culture we were overwhelmed with its rich history. We started our tour on the lower level which chronicled slavery, reconstruction and the injustices suffered by African Americans in America. Subsequent levels featured advancements and contributions made by African Americans in the United States.
To commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day, we will visit the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. The Smithsonian’s newest museum is filled with the history and contributions of African Americans in the United States. The museum’s unique bronze exterior is absolutely beautiful! Details of our visit will be featured in upcoming post.
Located in the MGM National Harbor is the restaurant Marcus by celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson. We stopped by for lunch without a reservation and had to be put on the wait list. While waiting for a table we decided to get coffee at Starbucks in the casino. There was a long delay at Starbucks and we missed our table call. The hostess indicated that they looked for us but we were nowhere to be found. After we explained the reason for the delay the hostess was kind enough to seat us after a short wait. As the head hostess walked us to our table she said to me “I know your time is valuable and I apologize for the delay.” I thought that was such a lovely thing to say and I made sure to let her know I appreciated the kind words. Our dining experience and food at Marcus was amazing!
