The fall sea­son rep­re­sents change—and is also sym­bolic of the new and ex­cit­ing things hap­pen­ing in the District. Capi­tol File finds mean­ing around town in so many of these, in­clud­ing the changes you’ll be mak­ing to your wardrobe af­ter read­ing our fash­ion-fo­cused Fall is­sue. Ex­pe­ri­enc­ing com­fort, mys­tery, and new be­gin­nings are a few ways Capi­tol File finds syn­ergy with this spe­cial time of year.

Chillier tem­per­a­tures make us crave com­fort, and there’s no bet­ter place to be com­forted than a lux­u­ri­ous five-star Wash­ing­ton, DC ho­tel. We rec­om­mend tak­ing a stay­ca­tion in town. Pam­per your­self and your soul with a lux­u­ri­ous mas­sage at the Man­darin Ori­en­tal spa. Or how about a glass of Cham­pagne on the out­door rooftop of the Rose­wood to re­lax af­ter a day of Ge­orge­town shop­ping?

The Na­tional Gallery of Art is one of the most mag­nif­i­cent places in town to feel a sense of mys­tery—wan­der the mu­seum and see the won­ders of color in this sea­son’s ex­hibit of 21 prints by Ed­vard Munch, “Color in Con­text,” open­ing Septem­ber 3. The show “con­sid­ers the choice, com­bi­na­tions, and mean­ing of color in light of spir­i­tu­al­ist prin­ci­ples,” as the mu­seum de­scribes it, and draws from “pop­u­lar man­u­als that ex­plained the science of color and theo­soph­i­cal writ­ings on the vis­ual and phys­i­cal power of color.”

Mean­while, new be­gin­nings here at Capi­tol File mean new re­la­tion­ships. We’ve be­gun a part­ner­ship with Pen­tagon Fed­eral Credit Union, a group that is cer­tainly do­ing well by do­ing good in the com­mu­nity, and we look for­ward to show­cas­ing their good works. We want to con­grat­u­late Mary Streett on her new po­si­tion as the head of US com­mu­ni­ca­tions and ex­ter­nal af­fairs at BP Amer­ica. Ku­dos are also in or­der for EastBanc and the many won­der­ful places it has added to our city, in­clud­ing the Squash on Fire courts, which you can read about in this is­sue. And Ge­orge­town con­tin­ues to amaze me with the one-of-a-kind re­tail and home de­sign stores in Cady’s Al­ley. Take an af­ter­noon your­self to ex­pe­ri­ence the gems of this spe­cial lo­ca­tion, and en­joy all that fall has to of­fer in DC!
