Rent the Runway: So Easy to Love

Rent the Runway.  Sounds glamorous,  n’est-ce pas?  I recently signed up for a one month trial of Rent the Runway Unlimited.  Imagine the Netflix DVD service plus high end shopping.  You choose the item you want to wear, you wear it, and you return it through the mail or in a locker around the city.  Then new…

Ms. Vedral Goes to Washington: Café Milano

Prior to moving to DC, I had been warned by…pretty much everyone…that my foodie proclivities would need to be adjusted. And experience had also brought this to bear: I once had Thai food at a restaurant with a punny name that used regular broccoli instead of Chinese broccoli in its Pad See Ew. I’d been…

Pinball Takes DC Back to the Arcade

On the top floor of the Georgetown Park Mall lies a wonderful secret – the home of the National Pinball Museum. A surprisingly informative tour yields all kinds of fascinating tidbits about the history of the game, including its origin – the French billiard game bagatelle. C’mon, hipsters — someone start an ironic bagatelle league already! The…

The Woman in Me

In this tangle of happy hours and sales that can be life in DC, it’s easy to bypass introspection.  Remember that?  From those school papers?  Ahhh, yes, the unexamined life is not worth living and all that. Anyway, that’s what I took away from a recent panel discussion at Heiner Contemporary in upper Georgetown.  The panel,…

Hooked on Delicious in Georgetown

Ahoy, mates! Captain Joel here to tell you about Hook, an impressive seafood restaurant in Georgetown. Sure, it’s been around for awhile, but better late than never, right? This posh eatery provides a wee bit of upscale competition for neighboring Clyde’s in the strangely restaurant-scarce west-of-Wisconsin corridor on M Street. You might be asking yourselves, what are we…

Hidden Gem: Cafe Bonaparte

I always have a chip on my shoulder when I go to Georgetown these days. Maybe it’s all the runners who insist on jockeying with the tourists for space on M Street.  Maybe it’s the chain stores.  Maybe it’s Clyde’s.  Hey, what do you have against Clyde’s?  Ugh! I exclaim, and flounce away. Then one…
