Yesterday morning, we spotted workers cleaning the courtyard roof of the Smithsonian Reynolds Center (AKA the building housing the American Art Museum & Portrait Gallery). No doubt, days will seem much brighter in the courtyard this summer! We just wish the Courtyard Cafe
and Portico Cafe were open later than the 6:30pm and 5pm closing time s , respectively.
Update (4/29/2010): We have received word from the Smithsonian that the Portico Cafe is no longer in operation now that the Courtyard Cafe is open.
