I apologize if this has been asked and answered 100 times but I've been tyring to use the site search and not getting much that way.
We'll be visiting DC on a Tuesday & Weds, no kids. I know we'll be touring the Capitol bldg but nothing else is decided. I suppose we'll visit some Smithsonian museums (although I just read that the one housing Julia's kitchen is closed for renovations!), maybe the Library of Congress... beyond that I don't know, we're pretty open. Are there good but inexpensive places to eat in the area? Also, maybe happy hours offering a super deal on bar fare? Any tips for saving some money but not eating poorly? This trip wasn't in the budget but something came along and we're off. Still, trying to do it really inexpensively.
