A Hippy Fantasy
By: Henry


Just as I was mentally drafting my resignation letter for my job back home it was time for lunch. We paid our $5 for a vegan buffet and entered the line. The gears started shifting that this might not be the right place when someone asked about my boots, specifically the leather.


Fall Forward
By: Henry


Outdoor concert series are winding down, but its a wonderful time to take in a rooftop deck and trade in those gin and tonics for a bourbon on the rocks. It's just cool enough to rock that tweed jacket, find your argyle sweaters and if you are like me and just can't let high school live in the past, sport your old letterman's jacket.



So You Wanna Go To A Ballgame?
By: Henry

Nothing is more embarrassing than seeing a dad misplay a foul ball, bound over three rows of cracker jack eating families and come up empty handed. At least bare handed you have an excuse.



So You Wanna Have Unrealistic Expectations?

I am your typical 24-year old girl. That being said I was obviously excited to see Sex and the City 2 come out this past weekend.

When you click connect you will instantly be sitting in the living room or bedroom of a stranger. I have found it easier if I know my audience and what to expect from each of the groups. Every single person I have encountered has easily fit into one of these categories...







So You Wanna Be A Local?
By: Henry


It was about time someone wrote something positive about the tourist. Come April every blog, local rag and even the big city newspapers do nothing but rip on tourists and their FBI shirts and flat brimmed DC Nationals hats. Yes, I know it's annoying that they don't "walk left, stand right" on the metro escalators, but that school trip just threw another $200 in the economy...

When I received that tiny envelope I jumped for joy and tried searching for the exact opposite. I was so excited at the thought of being in a movie scene court room with lawyers constantly screaming out, “OBJECTION” while the judge huffs and either grumbles, “sustained” or “over-ruled”.
