Eric E. Richardson is the Executive Director of the Office of Cable Television, the District of Columbia government agency that regulates the cable services and operates TV-13, TV-16 and the District Knowledge Network. Eric’s favorite pastime when not promoting the agency is preparing for marathons. Eric says running is both therapeutic and relaxing. His favorite places to run are Hains Point and Rock Creek Park.
Cultural Tourism DC asked some prominent Washingtonians to share with us their favorite places or events that are special and unique to DC.
Eric’s five favorite places:
1. Eastern Market - Once known as the “town center” of Capitol Hill Eastern Market continues to be a weekend hub and my one stop shop for food, arts, crafts, music and unique gifts.
2. Newseum - One of my best interactive museum experiences! You will get a behind the scenes look at how and why news is made and how it plays a pivotal part in our lives.
3. President Lincoln’s Cottage - President Lincoln spent one quarter of his presidency at this National Monument and you will see why after just one visit to this hidden treasure.
4. E Street Cinema - E Street delivers a diverse and entertaining film experience in a sophisticated adult atmosphere and the occasional midnight movie is always a treat for my insomnia.
5. The Peacock Café - The Peacock Happy Day Brunch is served until 4:00pm and the full-service fresh fruit and vegetables juice bar is a one of a kind.
