WHO: Vice pres­i­dent and busi­ness man­ager of top DC auc­tion house Doyle. MID­DAY BITE: “Bour­bon Steak (2800 Penn­syl­va­nia Ave. NW, 202-944-2026; bour­bon­steakdc.com) for lunch never falls short. I’m ad­dicted to the salmon burger.” GALLERY TALK: “I love to stroll into Artist’s Proof (1533 Wis­con­sin Ave. NW, 202-803-2782; aproof.net). I al­ways see a piece I could eas­ily live with.” SPAN­ISH AC­CENT: “Barcelona (3310 Wis­con­sin Ave. NW, 202-800-4100; barcelon­aw­inebar .com) has a friendly bar, and the food is great. I grav­i­tate to­ward neigh­bor­hood spots; this has the right mix.” LET’S MIN­GLE: “With live mu­sic or a DJ, Evenings at the Edge at the Na­tional Gallery of Art (Con­sti­tu­tion Av­enue and Sixth Street, 202-737-4215; nga.gov) feels elec­tric. I al­ways meet such in­ter­est­ing peo­ple. On my last visit, Th­easter Gates’s work The Mi­nor Arts blew me away.” RE­LAX: “Ur­ban Butcher (8226 Ge­or­gia Ave., Sil­ver Spring, 301-585-5800; ur­ban­butcher.com) is my go-to right now. There’s happy hour all day on Sun­day, and the laven­der mar­gar­i­tas are ter­rific.” Doyle is lo­cated at 3256 Prospect St. NW, 202-342-6100; doyle.com.
