Over the years, I have had the good luck of being able to visit our nation’s capital in Washington, D.C., many times.
I once regularly had pressing work-related reasons to go. Those reasons might be so-called big-deal visits to “The Hill” or crucial meetings with some powerful federal agency. Maybe it was some random conference where I would sit in the back and drink coffee and eat pastries all day, or heaven forbid, I would be one of the important speakers.
D.C. does conferences like Las Vegas does craps — which leads me to the sage advice I give for meetings in either place: keep the stakes low. If you must go to the capital, get your work done and out of the way as quickly as possible so you can get to what the city does best.
While most see Washington as a town defined by politics and power, to me it more accurately stands for history and food, and not necessarily in that order.
