internet: cui bono?

On the whole, most acts shy of outright aggression are seen as weakness, and weakness is despised, punishment favored, cosmic justice scorned. We’re taught moment by moment, amidst the fray, to seize opportunities for advancement and reward and to crush...

Brunch at Petits Plats

Since Saturday turned out to be extremely pleasant, after hitting the 14th & U Farmers Market, we decided to venture over to Woodley Park and find a bit of brunch. I hadn’t been to any of the restaurants along the...

Buddha-Bar DC new Lunch menu

Last week I was invited to try out Buddha-Bar DC‘s new “wallet-friendly” lunch options along with some other bloggers and journalists. I hadn’t been to Buddha Bar before, but one of the consistent opinions among friends were that the entree...

reality: there’s no whining in fashion!

I don’t watch Project Runway (or any reality shows, they’re a deal-breaker for me) but found the following part of a critique of a recent episode by Tom & Lorenzo–shared by friend J. M. Kincaid–to be both hilarious and appropriate…

AGAINN Spring Menu

Earlier this month, I was invited along with other local food bloggers and writers to AGAINN–pronounced ‘aguinn’ [a-g-uin]–to sample their Spring Menu. AGAINN does right by the term Gastropub with a warm atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, accessible menu and great food!

Ping Pong Dim Sum

One thing I’ve been hearing since moving to a city with a–more or less–proper Chinatown is “Where can you go for good dim sum?” And as it was well before my out and about knowledge, I had no idea, but...

Bourbon Steak DC at the Four Seasons

Everyone treats themselves, especially around this time of year. You’re in a shop or online, looking for gifts and you see the perfect thing… for yourself. You throw caution to the wind and say "Why not? I deserve this!" Well,...

food: RW at co co. sala

One of the best things, in my opinion, about Restaurant Week are the lunch options. In deference to many DC workers that have to head back home to the burbs after work, it’s nice that they have the option to...

food: RW at Cedar

This will be a quickie as I didn’t bring my good camera and I don’t have much to say aside from: GO. Since DC Restaurant Week is in full-swing now, it may not be easy to get a table at...

movies: just say Brü-NO

It’s no secret that I don’t plan to see or rent Brüno, Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest movie based on awkward situations and ambush comedy surrounding an uncanny valley-like main character. There have been a few articles out about him playing...

food: brunch at the tap room

’nuff said. Ok, not really, but I think I can still feel some of this brunch creating a food baby in my belly. Since Sunday turned out to be such a nice day, I ventured forth to Clarendon to meet...

food: brunch in the burbs

I wasn’t sure I’d get in a brunch this weekend. That wouldn’t have made a very good start to The Brunch Project. The week moved more quickly than I thought, even though it didn’t feel like it and when Friday...

brunch: Chef Geoff’s Downtown

Even though I cook a lot at home, I started to feel that I was only satisfying part of my foodie nature. Cooking at home is my option when a number of friends don’t materialize that want to go out...

food: the people’s brunch

Move over Tonic, I may be a CommonWealth breakfast/brunch boy now. After going for the first time this past Thanksgiving, I knew I wanted to try more of their stuff. Kyle suggested we hit it for brunch and I was...

gadgets: Meat packing made easy!

Have I mentioned how much I love my Reynolds Handi-Vac yet? $10 at Target plus average cost for quart and gallon bags and I haven’t had bulk meat or produce go bad on me in months. Recent efforts are vastly...
