Here comes the sun, D.C.

At long last, the sun has emerged from wherever she's been hiding from Wikileaks exposures, deep budget cuts, and Egypt protests.

It's 60 degrees outside. In February. Office drones, it's time to tear yourself away from the desk and get some rays. And our Going Out Guru Amy Joyce tells you a few ways to enjoy the--dare we say it--almost balmy weather.

1. Hit the food trucks. You might have to wait in line, but who cares in these temperatures? Our Going out Guide has the round up of superior mobile food purveyors across town.

2. You want to eat that food outside, you say? A waterfront picnic spot or GOG's best alfresco dining spots have got you covered.

3. If you're looking to get a little active after hibernating all winter, you can hit some golf balls on your lunch hour at Hains Point, or even ice skate in short sleeves. Just the thought of that makes us smile.
