Georgetown Visitation by John W.

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • DC Gastronome stops by Ching Ching Cha, declares it a non-secret secret gem.
  • Dean and Deluca is selling gourmet non-Oreo Oreos for $26 per pound.
  • Want an authentic Cuban movie or political poster? Stop by 3319 O St. NW this weekend from 10 am to 6 pm and pick yourself up a unique conversation piece.

Buy Yourself Some Cubans

 

Cuba’s been in the news a lot recently. President Obama eased travel restrictions to the island nation. The Castro brothers disagreed on what that meant. And worst of all, Joe Cuba died.

When better a time to buy up some Cuban folk propagandist art? This Saturday you’ll have your chance. Bill Brubaker of 3319 O St. will be holding his annual art sale. Mr. Brubaker wrote to the Georgetown listserv that his sale:

will have the usual assortment of paintings, textiles, batiks etc. from Asia, Africa, the Americas. But the highlight will be dozens of silkscreened Cuban movie and propaganda posters from the 1960s to present. I’m selling them for $59 each. Most are 20 by 30 inches, unframed and in great condition. They make spectacular gifts.(One poster honors Marilyn Monroe!) My sale will be held Saturday and Sunday (April 25-26) from 10 am to 7 pm each day.

So between the house tour, the French Market, and a Cuban Marilyn Monroe, you certainly can’t complain that there’s nothing to do around town tomorrow.
