Farewell DC Metblogs

Over a year ago when I took over for Anthony Marenna I didn’t fully realize what I got myself into when I became the man in charge for DC Metblogs. Over the next few months I tried to make Metblogs my own and have done some really cool things in the process. Whether it was [...]

The Future Of DC Metblogs

I was surprised yesterday when I saw that there was an announcement that the Metblogs network will close down at the end of the month. Right now I am on the remote island of Hatteras, NC enjoying a beach vacation on The Outer Banks. For those that have see the update bar above me, here’s what [...]

Capitol Hill Craigslist Ad Considered One Of The Weirdest By Consumerist

I’ll let the ad speak for itself- my apologies if you know the guy looking for a roommate/specimen: h/t Consumerist

Silver Diner Debuts New Local/Healthy Menu

I swear I’m not going to become a food blogger. But I do love food- and apparently people notice when I write about food. After writing about my brunch at Liberty Tavern, Silver Diner across the street invited me to a dinner with other bloggers to try out their new Fresh & Local menu. The new [...]

Washington DC One Of The Worst Cities For Moms?

In honor of Mother’s Day The Daily Beast (home of an extensive blogger roster including my republican dream girl Meghan McCain,) published a list of the Best and Worst cities for mothers, can you guess where Washington DC ended up in the ranking of the top 200 cities? Try 7th to last- right above LA. The [...]

What’s Your Favorite DC Food Truck?

I never thought I would order food from a truck but these treats are not your typical tourist food trap. Now that I’m working in Rosslyn I’ve become accustomed to the food carts that park themselves right outside the Gannett building. First I tried a Gryo at the Metro Halal Food Cart, because if you know me [...]

Photo: OpenSkies Kicks Off New Route From The Hay-Adams Hotel

As my co-worker/blogger extraordinaire Nisha can attest,  the view is great from the Hay-Adams Hotel rooftop. I was there last week at a reception to celebrate the maiden voyage of OpenSkies Airline’s new “Capital to Capital” route from Washington D.C. to Paris. The cuisine of Michel Richard Citronelle was served as well as this interesting [...]

DC Metblogs Has Two Tickets To That Thing You Like (The Washington National Opera)

What does that awesome Old Spice ad have to do with the Washington National Opera? Not much, the spot is stuck in my head now thanks to a recent Ellen Show clip- but if you listen to the ad you could assume that the opera is one of those things she likes but you may [...]

My First DC Brunch

DC is certainly a brunch city, and while I didn’t really like Washington City Paper’s best brunch choices, I recently experienced the brunch phenomenon myself at a really classy place. I stumbled out of bed two Sundays ago with a headache and a growling stomach. My cell phone rang, it was my roommate Maricha asking me [...]

Travel Channel’s Food Wars Pits Jumbo Slice Against Pizza Mart

Sometimes I get my DC news from the media, sometimes I get it from pitches. I got this one from overhearing my co-workers that sit behind me. Hey I heard Jumbo Slice and you got my attention (even though I haven’t been since the one time I went there in 2008.) Travel Channel’s Food Wars will be [...]

Northside Social Told In Three Visits

In my lifelong quest for finding places where I can blog, I gave Murky Coffee in Clarendon a try and found it to be the perfect stereotypical coffee spot: kind of divey, free WiFi, and always overcrowded due to it’s perfect environment for studying or looking like a hipster. When Murky became defunct last year, I [...]

Pillow Fight Planned For This Weekend On National Mall, Dupont Circle

My pal P.Q. sent me an invite to what appears to be a pillow fight scheduled for tomorrow at The National Mall. In recognition of International Pillow Fight Day, Capital Improv is organizing the local fight in Washington, DC. According to the invite over 400 people participated in last year’s fight and there’s already well [...]

Real World DC: Episode 14 Breakdown

This is it. The end. The last Real World DC recap I’m ever going to write (at least til’ Real World 30: Return to DC.) So let’s skip the pleasantries and just get it on- I’m sure you guys are sick enough of them, the show, or my recaps. Maybe all of the above. Drama In DC Everybody Is Artsy [...]

Washington City Paper Unveil’s Best of D.C. 2010

It’s time again for the Washington City Paper’s annual Best of D.C. The 2010 edition is dedicated to “the newcomer,” as Erik Wemple writes: “In the best spirit of civic journalism, we are dedicating this issue to the newcomers. We want the rest of the city to stand up and look at what [...]

Flying Kites And Cherry Blossoms In DC

This past weekend I met up with my new pal Rebecca at the The 44th Annual Smithsonian Kite Festival. We originally planned on protesting the kites but instead attempted to fly some instead. I think the kites had the last laugh as we realized that we weren’t very good at flying kites. I didn’t connect the [...]

National Geographic Launches New Channel: Nat Geo Wild

Washington D.C. based National Geographic launches a new TV network today focused on animals. The network, Nat Geo Wild, has been in existence since 2006 in other regions of The World and will be making it’s United State debut, replacing Fox Reality Channel in about 50 million homes. With other networks already dedicated to programming featuring [...]

How DC Volunteers: Via Massive Single Day Event

When did massive, single-day volunteer orgies become cool? Maybe it’s a Gen-Y thing. As a college student we had annual community service projects and more recently it was hip to partake in community service around Obama’s Inauguration. Regardless of how it became cool, I have to admit that it’s always good to support your local community [...]
