I have wanted to go to minibar probably since it originally opened but DC being fairly close has worked against me. As hopping on Amtrak requires little advance notice I’ve just never planned a trip to DC far enough ahead of time to make reservations. Perhaps for the best to now be able to visit barmini as well on the same evening. Some really great beverage pairings as I knew there would be and some very memorable courses. My 2 favorite courses weren’t really courses at all but brought back childhood memories. The first was pressed ‘flowers’ in a book presented in the lounge. The second a shrunken hand towel which expanded with hot water just like the capsules that expanded to sponges in the bathtub (I’m sure my brother and I went through hundreds).
