European Union Embassies' Open House

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Yeah, Cultural Tourism DC's EU Open House day is a culturally enriching event that celebrates diplomacy, but really, the reason everyone loves it so much is that it's a combination of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" and an all-you-can-eat buffet. It's the one day of the year you get to peer into palatial embassies and see the splendor that is merely another person's workplace. Plus, embassy hospitality often involves free food, like sips of Belgian beer, Estonian fish, or a delicious plateful of Polish pierogi and kielbasa. If you're swift enough to make it to many embassies by utilizing the provided shuttles and avoiding long lines, you won't even need to worry about a meal that day. Bon Appetit.
