Not Groundbreaking News: Americans Are Fat

Just eat less?: News alert: Because we are a nation of fat slobs, our government would like us to drink less sugar filled poison and stop eating spoonfuls of nitrates, lard and cat litter, even if it tastes good.  Which in D.C. translates to, maybe only have bacon covered donuts once a month? The superb journalists at The New York Times, ever eager to mock D.C., used the photo from their “D.C. sure is full of fat people” article as the photo for their article about these new dietary guidelines. Aww, thanks! [New York Times] Read more on Not Groundbreaking News: Americans Are Fat…

D.C. Sans People: A Christmas Miracle!

Wednesday, December 22: The best thing about spending the days before Christmas in D.C. is that no one is here (including those who probably should still be here, to pass bills and such). The city is so pleasant and empty, making it the ideal time to go bars that would normally be teeming with people. Try the Blue Banana in Petworth. It’s a sports bar that may come with a side of hookers, but hey, they’re having an open bar tonight from 8 to 9PM, and tomorrow beer is half price all night. [The Blue Banana] Read more on D.C.

We’ll Wait For You, Obama (and Drink In the Meantime)

Wednesday, December 8: Obama loved the D.C. restaurant scene and would devour our rich-people hamburgers and gourmet junk food whenever he could. But just because the new Obama doesn’t want to have anything more to do with the silly intellectuals who came to D.C. for him and created a city in his image doesn’t mean you can’t be your sanctimonious self and drink to your favorite ideologies at any of D.C.’s liberal havens. Try Local 16: their happy hour goes until 8PM and their roof deck is heated. [Local 16] Read more on We’ll Wait For You, Obama (and Drink In the Meantime)…

Good news: you do not need to have a small child to quality for tickets. [The National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony] Read more on Restoring America With Monosyllabic Restaurants…
