DC diary, day three

Greetings from the Kettler Ice Plex in Arlington, Va. where the Bruins have hit the ice for practice. This will be our first stop of the day today so therefore its only appropriate to show a pic from the inside of the rink.

Here’s a view of Arlington itself on a rainy Wednesday afternoon. I’ll hope to get a few more pics from the the area during the course of the day.

Update 4:53 p.m.

Below is a montage of today’s practice that also includes interviews with Rich Peverley, Milan Lucic and Brian Rolston:

Tonight’s plans include dinner in Dupont Circle. I will probably be posting a few pics from the area too before the night is all said and done. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon!

Update 11:21 p.m.

While I didn’t get to see as many sights today, your’s truly did stop at Dupont Circle for some dinner:

And a couple of interesting pics from dinner tonight at Kramerbooks and Afterwords bar. I’ve been here before during a journalism trip in college, but I’m still amazed that the a place that serves both adult beverages and books the second time around.
