Souvenir Watch: Inauguration Map-kerchief
Ever wanted to blow your nose on the Lincoln Memorial or clean your glasses with the Verizon Center? Of course you have. And now you can with the Rand McNally's inauguration "fabMAP."
The map, which displays the route of the inaugural parade and downtown tourist attractions, is the latest in a line of Rand McNally city maps printed on waterproof, tear-proof fabric.
At a Glance:
Item: President Barack Obama Commemorative Inaugural fabMAP
Maker: Rand McNally.
Dimensions: 11.8 inches by 7.8 inches
Where to Buy: Rand McNally's Online Travel Store, or select retail outlets in the D.C. area, including Target stores, Books-A-Million in DuPont Circle, Dulles Airport gift shops, and Harris Teeter in Northern Virginia.
Why? From Rand McNally's press release: "It's tear-proof, won't wrinkle, and has many uses including cleaning glasses, mobile device screens and camera lenses. This napkin-sized fabric map easily fits into a purse or pocket but also features intricate mapping detail."
Inauguration Watch Verdict: Much nicer and more durable than the free maps from area hotels, but also shows less of Washington. Probably more more useful for cleaning glasses or framing for display than as a map, unless you're staying within the mile north of the mall.
