Food in DC: La Tomate Caffè

La Tomate in Dupont Circle has always felt like an institution to me. It was often the chosen site of a first, second or third date. Plenty of variety, nothing too over-the-top and good prices on the lighter/pasta dishes. But...

Capital Fringe: The Road to High Street

Another highlight of this year’s Capital Fringe Festival is Andrew Potter’s critically acclaimed show, The Road to High Street: the true, tell-all tale of two unicycle-riding/fire-eating/guitar-playing/rubber chicken-juggling street performers in a one-man, musical, digital storytelling show. Trying saying that five...

Capital Fringe: Dracula… in DC?

It’s been a while since I’ve seen any live theater in DC. The last show I saw was “Looped” over 5 years ago, yikes! Not so great for someone who actually was a theater geek himself once upon a time....

Free in DC: Sunday Concerts at NBM

Just this weekend, friends and I were discussing how odd it is that non-free museums decided to open in DC given the large number of free Smithsonian facilities. And while The National Building Museum is no longer free, they have...

metro: what’s your number?

I don’t mean your sleep number, or WMATA’s information number, or even the digits of that hottie you see everyday who doesn’t even take any notice of you, but the optimal number of minutes to your next train. Mine, in...

photo: free for… hall?

Spotted this on my way out to work this morning. Yesterday afternoon, it was an easel, a few hangers, a roll of hot pink wrapping paper, a small rug and some books. This morning, it’s a TV and a multifunction...

A little sidewalk chalk spotted on my Sunday morning walk to Meridian Hill Park… …eh, sometimes I’m kinda on the fence.

photos: in your skin

There’s a new apartment–or possibly condo, it gets hard to tell the difference–complex under construction near my office and while that’s hardly remarkable in DC, one of the choices for their conceptual stock photos… well, it certainly makes an impression....

snow: The Late Late Late Frost

Dear Late Frost, Oh, we’ve had some good times over Winter and right on into Spring. You even played hide and seek for a few days–here and there–and let us run around in the sun… and when you discovered that...

spoilers: don’t get…

It’s not always a bad thing when people associate you with a TV program, but perhaps not this particular one. [Spoiler Alert]

weather: baby, it’s cold…

It’s almost impossible to believe that the DC area is getting snow tomorrow, until you remember that exactly one year ago… we got snow.

home: out with the old

I never do “spring cleaning” in Spring. Usually my efforts at cleaning are fueled by guests coming over, or finally coming out of a depressed episode or because I end up watching a Hoarders marathon and do not want to...

home: BUTT OUT! …please?

In which my first world problem complaints about cigarette butts landing on my patio are vindicated with a not-strongly-worded-at-all memo from the management.

As prepared as I was for the return of Spring, I hadn’t quite accounted for the birds.
