What's Underground?

For years, the answer has been nothing. But that's all changed. The Dupont Underground is back open. For decades, this former underground path originally created for streetcars, has been bored up and practically forgotten. Today, it is the site of RAISE/RAZE. The exhibit is not only interactive, but also recycled. The material used? Hundreds of thousands of white plastic balls re-gifted from last summer’s immensely popular “Beach” installation at the National Building Museum. And that exhibit is just the beginning. The mission of the organization is to revitalize the abandoned trolley station beneath Dupont Circle for presenting, producing, and promoting cutting-edge arts, architecture, des

Nourish Your Body and Mind

Being a 21-year resident of the DC area, and a self-proclaimed foodie, I am often asked, "Where should we go for dinner?" I am asked by locals and tourists alike. My list of places provided after each request depends on many variables--what's the occasion, who will be dining, do you have a price point in mind, something casual or more refined, and more? My questions are an attempt to understand what and where they'd like to eat, but also what kind of experience they seek. You see for me, dinner is more than food. It is time to relax, open your mind, talk with friends, and share. In my recommendations, I often include a link to a recently published article about the places. Imagery of the foo

Vintage Beauties

Sleek lines. Smooth finishes. Solid doors. Leather seats. There is just something special and sensual about vintage cars. I had the pleasure of spending the morning at Classic Motor Cars of Washington, DC. I wasn’t there buying, I was there having my car detailed. But while there, dreaming about how wonderful it would feel to drive one of these beauties around sure was fun. Alan showed me around the main showroom and when I told him I loved the classic, 1960’s era Mercedes convertibles, I also got a special tour of the workshop below. An old Mercedes and a Hellcat were among the treasures underneath the public showroom. I drove off in my car with an eye over my shoulder in hopes of one of th
