Extra Innings: Where to go Before and After Nationals Games

Baseball used to mean crackerjacks and peanuts. Thankfully, that is no longer the case. As most Americans’ culinary interests have exploded, unless you’re a lover of Taco Bell Doritos Locos tacos (in which case you’re probably dealing with a different type of gastrointestinal explosion), our appetite for a good meal and a great game have [...]

District of Hops: May’s Best Beer Events

At long last May is finally upon us. For some reason, we celebrate this lovely month by proclaiming it “National Drinking Water Month.” Why we need a reminder to drink a substance which makes up a majority of our bodies is beyond me.

May is not a month for celebrating water. It is a month of [...]

Picking Lucky for St. Patrick’s Day 2014

Every year, one can expect to find legions of green-clad revelers taking to the streets in search of beer, whiskey and merriment.

District of Hops: February’s Best Beer Events

We are three months into winter, and to say that it has been brutal would be an understatement akin to saying panda cubs are “kinda cute.” Winter 2014 has been long and historically rough. However, there are reasons to look on the bright side. Spring is just around the corner, bringing with it warmth and [...]

District of Hops: January’s Best Beer Events

The new year is already a week old. Time sure does seems to fly when you’re frozen and miserable. If you made a resolution to stop drinking in 2014, stop reading right now. However, if you’re like me and you’ve resolved to continue to enjoy the nectar of the gods, you are in luck. January [...]

District of Hops: Shutdown Suds Edition

The government has shut down. Crazy us thinking that a legislative body elected to responsibly govern would actually do their jobs. I’m at the point where I officially have more faith in Miley Cyrus keeping her clothes on than I do in my leaders. Surely that qualifies as reason enough for having a drink (or [...]

Dining and Dating District Style: Ghibellina

Forgive me father for I have sinned. It has been nine months since my last Dining and Dating District Style review. A definitely unaccomplished mission to obtain Ryan Reynolds’ physique sidetracked me from providing prompt and regular reviews; however, a recent meeting with the good folks of Sparkology, a NYC-based dating service set to launch [...]
