*Johnna’s tip: Our recent trip to P.F. Chang’s took us down memory lane, an awesome memory lane. Last year we took a trip to China that included walking the Great Wall, lying on the beaches of Hong Kong and of course, visiting the Terra Cotta Warriors. What an amazing exhibit?!? Now the Terra Cotta Warriors are here! Here, as in DC. Unbelievable. We honestly thought when we left China we would never see them again but P.F. Chang’s in conjunction with the National Geographic Museum have transported them to the District. If you have not been to this exhibit yet, go! They have been here since November 19 and will be leaving March 31, 2010. Plenty of time to see what some call one of the Wonders of the World…ohh and thanks to P.F. Chang’s for creating this potent cocktail in the TCW honor;-)
