September 15th to October 15th is Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States, and we think all our members and their families will have a wonderful time exploring the history of Latinos in the US at the Smithsonian Institute American History Museum's special exhibit, ¡Presente! This interactive gallery houses a variety of objects, recordings, data, and other materials that allow visitors a peek into just a few of the many stories that comprise the Latino experience. Currently housed in the Molina Family Latino Gallery, the exhibition is a fascinating preview of what we can hope to see in the forthcoming National Museum of the American Latino, currently under development.

Meet-up location: We'll meet by the fountain in front of the Constitution Avenue entrance to the museum at 11:30am.

After exploring the exhibit: We'll take a 15 minute walk over to Oyamel. Here, you can choose the brunch that's right for you, whether that's a sweet chocolate-and-cinnamon concha or hearty huevos enfrijolados (and maybe a blood orange and chili mimosa on the side?) Peruse the menu and get hungry here. Please make sure to RSVP, so that we reserve a large enough table!
