I was all set for an Africa-themed Wednesday night on the town – things got started with west African food at Rahama’s on U Street (portions were generous and the goat meat was particularly succulent, but it’s happened both times that I’ve been there, so I will say that I was overcharged.  Service is not their strong suit so it’s entirely possible that it was an honest oversight on both occasions).

I was then going to head over to Liv to support (and report on) the All Star Jam Session charity show for Mali, but a combination of rain, my full stomach, a dying cell phone battery, and the realization that I planned to wake up early tomorrow morning for the August Africa Policy Breakfast on the Hill nixed my higher aspirations for the night.
