You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.

Let’s take this one literally where is the best food you can get sitting at a bar. At first I think just very casual bar food – like wings, burgers, quesadilla, half smokes etc. and in that category I think I’m leaning towards Looking Glass Lounge. I had some fish tacos the other night that were awesome. But since we’re taking it literally it can also be higher end – like the bar of a higher end restaurant. So for those two categories, casual and higher end – where’s your favorite bar food from?
Thanks to a reader for sharing this phenomenal creation inspired from some street art in Shaw:
“My morning commute frequently takes me past the 1200 block of 9th Street, NW. I’m not sure how long it’s been there, but I’ve become obsessed with some art that someone posted on the door of the building being renovated. It led me to do an image search for “cat dracula” on Google (though, honestly, I do a lot of weird cat-related searches on Google. Why else do we have a Google?), and I was able to find another version of the image. When deciding what to carve in my pumpkin this year, the choice was clear: I bring you Nospurrratu!”
I remember when people told me I’d surely run out of things to post – I can’t believe it’s already 8 years! Thanks to you guys for helping make it happen. I sound like a broken record but I’m super grateful for all the great tips, tweets, emails, questions and photos that folks send. At this point it’s just as much “your” website as it is “mine” and I love it like this. Though admittedly some of my days are filled with aggravation – I truly and genuinely feel I have the best of job in the world. A lot of this of course is timing. I’ve now lived in DC 17 years (11 in Petworth) and it’s amazing how much has changed, some for the worse, but tons for the better. I feel so lucky to be witnessing it and chronicling it. So thanks again for allowing me to do so.
Ok – party on Thursday, November 6th at Meridian Pint (11th and Park Road, NW) 5/5:30- 11/11:30 depending on how much gas is in the tank. Thanks again to the folks at the Pint and DC Brau for hosting and brewing up something special for us. I’m also gonna bring some limited edition t-shirts (and regular ones too) for those who’ve been asking me how to get one. Anyway, these things are pretty chill but I’d love to be able to say thanks in person – so mark your calendars and stop by for a pint or two.
