[OK, so this one's not a blog, but here's a link to exactly how DC's government will be affected should the government actually shut down tonight. Fingers crossed that by the time you read this, it's all moot…]
…but in case it’s not, Herb of DC reflects on how the lack of parking enforcement that would result throughout the District is not the great thing a lot of us would think it is. I hate parking tickets as much as the next person, but food for thought.
Ever been to a wedding or other catered to-do and been… underwhelmed, we’ll say, by the food? Edatrix had a wedding, and she was not about to let that happen. She and her friends “ate GOOD.”
Speaking of parties, sometimes corporate parties don’t always result in fun, especially when travel is involved. Blarney Crone takes us on a slightly bumpy, and thoroughly brand-loyal, jaunt to Wilmington, Delaware.
Oh, Baltimore, our oft-ignored cousin to the northeast. With all of our monumental largesse here in DC, sometimes it is admittedly hard to keep another city’s attractions straight. But this particular mistake had me rolling in the aisles, as it did for Alice’s Adventures Underground.
And to wrap up the day-trip troika we have going here, Peace Love Nicole recalls a not-so-great trip to Colonial Williamsburg. History and water rides? How can you go wrong?
Now for this week’s pretty pictures of food. Soul food is amazing. Trust me; I’m Southern, and I ate this way most of my life (and somehow have a cholesterol reading under six million). Hungry Sam had a transformative experience at Georgia Brown’s at lunch the other day. I am officially jealous of this meal.
Congratulations to Sean at Sean’s Ramblings on the birth of his baby son! He shares some early thoughts about fatherhood, both funny and poignant. Plus, there’s a reference to Dinosaurs, which will be this week’s Gen-X pop culture check-in. (SUCH a great show…)
