Driving from Washington to NY a stop in Philadelphia is not "out of the way"   - no idea why they would just go for lunch - unless they are hitting the liberty bell or something

Agree that Philly is not out of the way, it's actually on the way.  As far as just lunch, the only things to do there are cheesesteaks and the Liberty Bell, unless you want to get mugged in which case they can do that too.

anyone ever send their kid to DC on a school field trip?  my daughter will be in 7th grade next year and it's just been presented to us.  i'm curious about the cost.  the quote is $2800/kid, everything included, for 6 days.  we are on the west coast.  does the cost seem reasonable?

have your kids done it?  did they like it?

Floppinho's 5th grade class is going for three days. PTA pays for it, so no idea about cost (they're taking buses and staying at a hostel style place). Previous years have loved the trip.

please post the menu - this is no place for teasing.  

Sorry, seemed more of a tease to post, unless you’re going to fly in for it. :excited:

House-made pastries and bread*

House-cured gravlax eggs benedict w/ Meyer lemon and fresh dill hollandaise

House-made biscuits and sausage gravy

Made-to-order omelets

Seafood bar featuring Marrowstone Island oysters, house-cured steelhead gravlax, shrimp cocktail w/ house-smoked horseradish sauce, and more

Roasted Nash’s Farm ham

Coffee-rubbed USDA Prime Rib

Organic spring salad

Roasted potatoes and seasonal vegetables

Seasonal fresh fruit

A selection of house-made desserts

*This part might sound boring, but this includes chicken empanadas, beef empanadas, squash/pesto/plum tomato/Parmesan thingies, cream cheese cookies, whiskey-glazed peach and apple pastries w/ brown sugar and cinnamon, blueberry/cherry/lime pastries topped with coconut and white chocolate, cherry/strawberry/cream cheese pastries with dark chocolate, and others.  Plus the homemade breads are to die for.

I'm not going to discuss the related politics here, but if you folks haven't seen Tomi Lahren's high school graduation pictures you have no idea what plastic surgery can do for a person.

Where are these?
