Paparazzi: Bobby Brown Spotted @ The Diner

The original “Bad Boy of R&B” aka “The Brown Bomber” aka the self-proclaimed “King of R&B” was spotted today in Adams Morgan at The Diner. A man’s gotta eat! Especially if he’s going to give a good performance tonight at the Tape Deck Throwback concert at Constitution Hall. Bobby is one-third of the group “Heads of State”, which also consists of New Edition compadres Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill.

The Hunt For DC’s Famous Dish

Quite a few cities (and states) are famous for a dish or cuisine. Philly is known for its cheesesteak. New York and Chicago have pizza on lock. The Maryland crab cake is world famous, while Louisianna and jambalaya are virtually synonymous. As a DC-native and self-proclaimed foodie, I find it bothersome that my hometown—the Nation’s Capital—is not famous for any particular food.

City Flicks: Masonic Temple

It’s true that you haven’t seen DC (and surrounding areas) until you’ve seen it at night. The Masonic Temple in Old Town Alexandria is a marvel as it sits, perfectly lit, atop a hill on Callahan drive. At nightfall, take a ride or even a stroll down King Street and you’ll be provided a perfect view of the George Washington Masonic Memorial.

UPTOWN: The Local “Movie-Buff’s” Theater

For a true movie-buff, a night at the cinema is much more than seeing a good flick. If you have never visited the Uptown Theater, your local movie-going experience is seriously lacking.

So What Saints?!

It’s been rough these last few years, but the Washington Redskins have a history of glory to which we are destined to return. Hail to the Redskins!!
