My day in Ann Arbor has been very relaxing. Coffee, newspaper, lunch, a hike in the Arboretum, and meeting friends for bathtub sangria at Casa Dominick's (812 Monroe St.), a wonderful biergarten across from the U-M Law School. The town is fairly quiet, not much is going on, just how I left the place three summers ago.

Apparently, there is a great artistic squabble in preparation for Ann Arbor's nationally recognized art fairs later this month. The poster winner for one of the art fairs is drawing much criticism for being off-the-wall and ugly. More on the art fairs can be found here.

While at Dominick's this afternoon, there was an odd couple sitting on the front terrace. The older man, who was openly paging through a Playboy magazine, was later joined by an older woman (who looked like a mix between Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) and South Carolina Senate candidate Inez Tenenbaum (D). Together, they paged through a colorful pop-up Kama Sutra guide book. Perhaps if was for a "summer term class."

I'll be back in the District by Friday afternoon.
