food: RW is over, but the specials go on!

Just in case there you didn’t have a chance to make any DC Restaurant Week seatings or there are places you missed, some places are extending the prix fixe specials.* From the Washingtonian: Who Is Extending Restaurant Week? Too busy...

night out: The Two Towers at Wolf Trap

I really wish I’d mentioned this sooner so people would have had a chance to make plans to go. A few weeks ago, I won my company’s ticket raffle for Wolf Trap tickets to see The Lord of the Rings:...

I really thought I was done with the series of moving-related spam posts this week* but clearly not. But it’s Friday, so let’s lighten the mood first off: Salsus told me that I’d mentioned spam far too often not to...

moving: Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam…

I know that craigslist is supposed to be the savior of apartment hunters, but I swear it’s giving me a headache.* I can deal with ads for apartments out of my price range, even one in my own building for...
