Klingle Ford Bridge

Last Sunday, I was up and ready for my usual brunch at Medium Rare a bit earlier than usual so I decided to take a bus to Woodley Park and walk north to Cleveland Park with the extra time.1 It’s...

Pope Francis… and Happy Hour in DC

I haven’t really been all that fired up about Pope Francis’ visit to the US. Mostly it manifested in the form of multiple alerts from DC and the Federal Government about street closings and office closings and potential metro train...

2015 DC Shorts Film Festival

It’s that time again! No, I don’t mean my birthday. Well, actually, my birthday is coming up soon, but just before that is DC Shorts! The 2015 DC Shorts Film Festival showcases one of the largest collection of short films...

photos: Kogan Plaza at GWU

Letting the wind (after the wind actually showed up) carry us where it may, we ended up walking from Farragut Square over to the Albert Einstein Memorial by way of Foggy Bottom/GWU and stopped off for some photos in Kogan...

photos: Hey… I shot that!

Work has been kinda busy lately, so I’ve fallen behind on my “3 days a week” writing self-assignment. But to be honest, I was never very good with homework, including that which I assign myself. Leading up to the weekend,...

in DC: Awesome Con!

Awesome Con was this past weekend in DC and I still feel a little worn out from it! When I last went two years ago, it was much smaller, just confined to a few rooms in the Convention Center–it was...

in DC: Franciscan Monastery

It’s pretty common that when you live in DC for a long time, you tend to take its sights for granted. Smithsonian? Seen it. Monuments? Yeah, sure. White House? Walk past it all the time. And even the sights you’ve...

food: The Baltimore Bomb

I’m not really much of a dessert person. I’ve said it before, usually to gasps or shock, but it bears repeating. Unless there’s something special on the sweets menu, I often pass. So even though I saw the Dangerously Delicious...

DC Pride 2015: Out/Spoken

Capital Pride is just around the corner, and in case you didn’t know, it’s not just all about the parade and festival (and parties)–even though it can sometimes seem that way. If you’d rather tone up your mind rather than...

photo: …they CAN jump!

Even though it was a warm and muggy day, it didn’t keep this guy down. Taken during a Martial Arts exhibition at the Asian Heritage Festival this past weekend.  The festival was a bit smaller than anticipated, and the food...

food: Chef Michel Richard at Medium Rare

“This is my friend Michel.” …cut to Brian quietly freaking out. So, yeah, that happened. I already posted the photo to every. single. place. imaginable… but it also needed to be here. I figured it to be the usual epic...

photo: gambling gnomes?

I’ve heard of garden gnomes getting up to some strange things in backyards, but nothing prepared me for finding telltale signs of a gnome gambling ring in the planters on my patio… Having a ground floor patio in a multi-story...

in DC: National Tree Equality…

Last week I made my annual (freezing) pilgrimage downtown to get a glance at the National Christmas Tree. This year, at least, I was smart enough to stop in for a few drinks first… for medicinal purposes, naturally! This year’s...

wishes: Somewhere that’s green…

I absolutely hate moving, but while looking over a friend’s shoulder at craigslist apartment rental ads this weekend, I noticed the following house for rent that made me think, “Hm… maybe moving wouldn’t be so bad!” At $2,999, it’s a...
