Suggestions[]

  • You must come not for the monuments (although if you are into that sort of thing the FDR memorial at twilight is awesome (you can go in the fountains))
  • You certainly shouldn't come for the food. Although there's Ben's ChiliBowl which the carnivores tell me is great.
  • You could come to take the Capitol of Punk tour. We really do have some music heritage (think Fugazi and Joan Jett)
  • You could come to meet the 360° Digital Influence team at Ogilvy. After all we are fans.
  • Oh, and we have a new mayor - Adrian Fenty. Ok, technically he has to be elected in November but we understand it to be a foregone conclusion. He's a good guy.
  • You should see Glen Echo Park 'cause it's weird. (I bet you've never been to a former Chautauqua camp, former amusement park before.)
  • There are some terrific environmental groups here if you are into that sort of thing.

But wait, there's more.... --Jbell99 00:49, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Two other places I recommend are a short visit to the Labor Hall of Fame at the U.S. Department of Labor (map) in DC to honor America's working men and women during Labor Recognition Month; and to Gravelly Point (map) near National Airport to see planes zoom right over your head.

  • I think you'd really like Busboys and Poets. They are a coffee shop but also have a bar. It's a very liberal place complete with an interesting bookstore. It's also nonsmoking (Other bars are smoking until the anti-smoking law comes into effect in 2007). It's at 14th and V streets NW which is 1

block or so from the U street/Cardozo metro on the green line. Oh and they have WiFi. Mikew 00:42, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Front Page and buffalo Billiards (across from the Dupont circle metro) are very popular. Mikew 00:42, 25 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Great place for a beer - the Brickskellar. Largest selection of bottled beers in the US. Half a block north of 22nd and P streets NW, just a couple blocks west of dupont circle fountain. -andy
