Chef Eukia Bryant’s culinary education began when she was just a girl. In her family’s kitchen she would marvel as her grandmother nimbly sliced meat and stirred pots of aromatic sauces. Although she would continue to study at a professional culinary institute, Eukia never forgot the skills and recipes she learned next to her grandmother. Today, with her own personal-chef business, she draws from those skills to whip up wholesome gourmet meals for couples and small groups.
The seasoned chef journeys to her clients’ homes, arms laden with bags of fresh produce, fine ingredients, and professional cooking equipment. She bustles about household kitchens as she whips up lavish dishes and desserts according to each customer’s specified tastes, preferences, and dietary restrictions. Before cleaning up the kitchen, she carefully packs meals into oven-safe containers and leaves customers with detailed reheating and serving instructions.
The versatile chef also designs elegant dinner parties for which she assists her clients with all aspects of planning—from crafting a special gourmet menu to deciding what color kazoo should go in each goodie bag.

It's possible to find art almost anywhere—from the galleries of a museum, to the side of a building, to the pages of a comic book. It's a little more difficult, however, to find all those styles in one place. That's one of the problems that Art Whino Gallery—a sleek, modern space at the National Harbor—seeks to solve by showcasing artists from around the world that run the gamut of modern high- and low-brow art. The gallery celebrates more than 1,200 established and up-and-coming talents, in part through rotating exhibits that explore new media such as stencil and wheat pasting, screen-printing, and vinyl, as well as more established arts such as burning effigies to ancient gods. An onsite store features modern-art figurines and toys as well as prints. Art Whino doesn't keep all its talent indoors, though: the gallery often helms cultural street festivals and participates in conventions and live arts-and-music events.
