I’m looking to have a very basic living will drawn up. Nothing fancy. I don’t have faith in the online DIY programs, so a suggestion to use one of those is a nonstarter for me. I don’t want to spend a ton of money on it. I’m hoping to keep the whole thing under $500.
Does anyone out there in PoPville have any suggestions for a decent wills & trusts attorney in DC? FWIW, I’ve asked friends for recommendations, and none of them have such documents.”
In addition to recommendations I’d also be curious to know what types of wills folks have? Health, finances, online life?

It’s been a long week. It’s gonna be a longer weekend. So indulge me!! I was talking with a buddy of mine about an essential question: what song would you walk out to if you were lucky enough to be a professional baseball player. Ed. Note: Go Nats!! This is a very, very hard question – you can only pick one song. After much consideration I ultimately went with Sure Shot. What’s yours?

I just noticed that the old Cooper Hardware is now a corner store. And obviously that got me thinking about corner stores and really good corner stores. So actually first off – what are the best corner stores in D.C.? What makes them good? What does/would make them great?

Now that we know how many folks got a break it’s time for my second favorite summer question – what are you reading? I can’t believe I’m only getting to it now, but I’m finally reading Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential and it’s terrific as expected. RIP. What are you guys reading? What’s the best book you read this summer?

I can’t believe it but August is approaching and with August, pumpkin spiced lattes aren’t too far behind – so let’s get at it. Who was/is lucky enough to take a vacation this summer? If you are a lucky one – where’d you go and how much time off did you take? Anyone lucky enough to go overseas? For those who hit the beach – which one did you go to? Anyone do a staycation here in D.C.?
From the files of I’m just curious and it’s a slow summer day so what the hell – do you smoke pot? Weed? Whatever folks call it these days. Vape, edidibles or whatever? Do you partake more now that it’s legal in D.C.? For those who do partake – how often? If you vape rather than smoke or vice versa – why do you prefer one method over the other? Do you feel it’s less stigmatized (if it ever was)? I’m just curious – ever living, ever feeling, happy Friday!

I need your help!
My husband and I are looking for a fantastic anniversary plan to celebrate 10 years of marriage mid-July. We have a big vacation planned later this year but want to do something special the day of. What is special, beautiful, delicious enough without totally wrecking our budget? Ideally we’d stay in the $200 range for the two of us, some drinks, and of course dessert. Also any alternative plans if dinner doesn’t pan out. Ultimately, I rented a sweet dress on RTR and need somewhere to wear it!

A reader rants:
“Shocked & disappointed to see the new The Smith on U Street with huge doors wide open, AC spilling out on hot humid days & loads of apparent climate change deniers inside. Why are DC taxpayers subsidizing a host of carbon reduction strategies, including insulating tiny gaps, only to watch The Smith & it’s patrons screw the rest of us?!”
Ed. Note: The Smith’s Penn Quarter location also has large windows open.

A friend of mine asked this question about SUVs and I found the responses fascinating. So, I’d like to open it up to all new cars. I don’t really know how to define “reasonably priced” but suffice it to say we’re not talking about BMWs, Mercedes, etc. I’ve been pretty happy with Mazda but am not sure I’d go with one again. So if you were going to buy a practical new car tomorrow – what would you get?

Was wondering if I could ask my fellow D.C. folks what their “third places” are. [“Examples of third places would be environments such as churches, cafes, clubs, public libraries, or parks.”] I’m on the lookout for a friendly hangout in Northwest or Northeast – just anything with a welcoming, community vibe. Thanks so much in advance!”
