I don't have Monday off but even I know that it's Veteran's Day not Memorial Day Ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetary.

Ouch. Major typo on my part. Sorry.

So does anyone have an idea on how to find out where he may be seen wining and dining? I would love to know what spots in DC he is visiting!

Bourdain will probably make a stop at Les Halles, as he is "Chef at Large," there.

Last time around, Bourdain visited a couple of downtown restaurants, including Minibar. Erin thinks you might want to try some of the newer, buzzier spots, like Central.
