All the details are right here! Do not forget! It starts in an hour, basically — so get your ladybug costume and witch hat and run to the Big Hunt in Dupont.
Let’s play “What would Carl Paladino do if he saw a bunch of drag queens running down a perfectly nice street in the middle of the District of Columbia while happy, well-adjusted Washingtonians watched and cheered and after the races scrambled to take photos with the Drag Queens, probably for future campaign purposes!” Carl surely [...]
Besides Bride Wars, Junkyard Wars and Star Wars, my favorite military engagements are burger wars. Lucky for me, and unlucky for dignity, there are actual adults currently waging a burger war in the heart of Dupont Circle, a really sort of fine part of town that idiot teabaggers call a “gay area.” Lawyers are mad [...]
The angry lawyers at the law firm Steptoe & Johnson actually SUED the Dupont Circle hamburger shop Rogue States because the alleged smell of burning dead animal was wafting up from the restaurant into the firm’s offices, making the lawyers sick and distracting them from doing whatever the remaining employed lawyers do with their billable [...]
The New York Times did some super-excellent journalism in Sunday’s magazine: an honest to God 14-page article (complete with an interactive map!) that details the eating, drinking, fornicating, and even religious habits of the 20-somethings who work in the Obama administration. As it is our job to tell you what to do in DC, as [...]
If you always wanted to be part of those spontaneous demonstrations that just happen in public (like freezing in place at the Grand Central Station, or breaking out in a musical number in the middle of a food court), then here’s your chance. This Saturday, in honor of National Pillow Fight Day, the DC Defenestrators [...]
St. Patrick’s Day joins Mardi Gras and New Year’s Eve as one of those celebrations whose continued observance relies on arbitrary binge drinking. It isn’t even St. Patrick’s Day yet, nine Dupont Circle bars will be adhering to the time-honored tradition of getting you sloshed, for cheap, for leprechauns or something, on Saturday night!
Georgetown — home of the cocktail-party-lovin’ metro-hatin’ DC elite — is not the easiest neighborhood in which to relax. But Pizzeria Paradiso, winner of a gajillion best-of-DC awards, is a refuge.
Like America’s most beloved chief of staff, Dupont Circle’s Eighteenth Street Lounge is good looking, cultured and aloof.
Dupont Circle South is notable for its large well-trafficked bars and startlingly high CVS-to-humans ratio. One thing it doesn’t seem to have in great volume is small-scale neighborhood watering holes. DC Bread & Brew, a new cafe and bar on 20th and N, seeks to right this terrible wrong.
There’s a big VP debate watch party tomorrow night in Washington, D.C., at the James Hoban’s bar in Dupont Circle, and its guest of honor will be a gal named “Elizabeth.” Elizabeth, for those of you not IN-THE-KNOW, is the most famous celebrity in the world now, as she is “the only Wasilla resident living [...]
DISTURBANCE IN OUR LOCALE: A Wonkette tipster writes: “Something’s going on in Dupont.. there is a row of ambulances and firetrucks lining New Hampshire from the Jury’s up to Corcoran St… also seems to be Special Ops and other fire dept- related cars…. Any idea what’s up?” Yeah no clue whatsoever, since we haven’t left [...]
HMM it appears as though greaseball failure Barack Obama is being extra sneaky today in Washington. Several operatives have seen Hussein Obama Jr. inconspicuously wandering about such barren wastelands as “Dupont Circle.” He must be buying drugs from the homosexuals! Or just picking a boring vice president, as per usual. You decide, after the jump.
EMERGENCY OBAMA WONK’D: Wonkette bodybuilding operative “Will” sends us an important notice of Barack Obama’s whereabouts this morning: “At washington sports club on connecticut north of dupont. He and reggie love were lifting free weights and listening to ipods. Barack’s musical selection? Eminem – Lose Yourself.” What a loser!
DOES THIS MEAN THAT IT HAS TO STOP?: “WASHINGTON – A Metro station manager and a Metro custodian were arrested on prostitution charges after an undercover transit police investigation found they arranged sexual trysts for money from inside the Dupont Circle Metro station.” Oh boy! Apparently the station manager was the contact on a flier [...]
