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

District of Hops: September’s Best Beer Events

So long and farewell to Summer 2013. Outside of the twerkings of an overrated “musician” and Vin Diesel driving cars for the sixth time, it was a truly fantastic summer. While the long days and warm sun are on their way out, there are plenty of autumn events to get excited about. September in particular [...]

Introducing Glutie Foodie

It has been a speedy two and a half years since my celiac diagnosis. At the beginning, I felt isolated, restricted by my gluten-free diet. Now, I am a cliché. When I tell servers or dinner party hosts that I am “allergic to gluten”, it is as if they expect it. It should be a good [...]

Food Meets Car – Experience Kia, Experience Fiola's

Most DC dwellers most likely spend at least 30 minutes commuting to and from work every day, some taking longer than 90 minutes. This isn't bad if you drive a luxury vehicle, but not everyone can afford that. Enter the 2014 Kia Cadenza – “the brand’s most powerful and technologically-advanced vehicle that Kia has ever introduced [...]
