    That’s very nice of you to do. I hope people took advantage of it. I visited DC as a kid and it made a huge impression on me.

    But maybe you could do something in the evening for the adults. How about a tour about the dear leaders favorite eateries! We could have cocktails in one, appetizers in another, main course somewhere else, and the obligatory after dinner drinks somewhere else. Okay, it will be pricey, but it’d be nice to see how the leadership lives.
