What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010?

Last month, Mr. T and I went to an amazing party sponsored by the National Defense University in honor of Defense Secretary Robert Gates. It gave me newfound respect for Secretary Gates, and it left me pondering the nature of patriotism and the sacrifices of our men and women in the military.

But I’m tired. I’m just not up to musings on the nature of citizenship at the moment, and I suspect you’re even less in the mood for reading my half-baked patriotic platitudes.

So, instead, how ‘bout I share some photos from Mr. T’s 10-year law school reunion? The dinner was pretty dull. But the setting in the Smithsonian American Art Museum was awesome! End result = we took a lot of pictures. Here are a few:

Mr. T and I posed with a random statue

I had never been to the museum’s 3rd floor — turns out I was missing some cool modern art and a peaceful sitting area for future visits

Mr. T with his friend Steph (a law professor, environmentalist, and all-around genius). What is IT? We don’t know, but we promise we left it alone!

Dinner was held in the Museum’s dramatic glass-canopied Courtyard

And enhanced by some crazy/cool mood lighting

Our camera has built-in “art filters,” including one for “grainy black-and-white film.” We had fun playing around with the filters (did I mention dinner was boring?) and were still at it as they cleaned up and kicked us out at the end of the night!
What was your most memorable event in 2010?
