Dupont Italian Kitchen at 1637 17th Street NW is a ” classic” in the neighborhood. Always a good bet for fast, affordable food with good, basic Italian dishes. Just do not expect more. It is a great place to sit on the patio and watch people go by on 17th Street.

Creme Cafe at 1322 U Street NW has now been open for four years with its wonderful offer of “home-cooked” meals. We ate there once and the food was delicious… sort of a mix of southern flavors. If you are feeling like soul food, you should give it a try.

Fernando Amorin‘s work is at International Visions, 2629 Connecticut Avenue NW: “You will find that Amorin’s tapestries, which take several months to create, are infused with energy and passion. This young man’s ability to create such detail and dimension proves that he is well on his way to establishing himself as a master of his craft.”

My Space on 7th” is a group exhibition featuring 90 local artists: “Touchstone Gallery has been an artist-owned gallery for more then 30 years. The gallery moved in 1996 to its current spacious location at 7th and D Streets NW, in downtown Washington. This 3,000-plus square-foot location is based in the center of the art scene, and is a short walk from the recently renovated and reopened National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian American Art Museum and The National Gallery of Art.”

Kenney Chesney performs on Saturday, August 29, at Nissan Pavillion, 7800 Cellar Door Drive in Bristow, VA. Don’t miss a concert that promises to be fun with great songs (I like him).

B.B. King plays on Sunday, August 30, at the Filene Center at Wolf Trap… a great way to end the weekend.

Acts of Love” is a series at the Church Street Theater, 1742 Church Street NW. A show that is part of the series and closing this weekend is “False Romance: An Intergalactic Farce” by Joe Baker.

Paco Diez performs Sunday, August 30, at the Millennium Stage at The Kennedy Center: “Guitarist Paco Díez, one of the most important musicians in Judeo-Spanish music, has been decorated by the Sephardic authorities (ANL) for his work in spreading Sephardic music and culture.”
