Introduction
I post stuff about DC area history and stuff I've discovered while exploring the area.  I've lived around here 30 of my 34 years and am still discovering cool stuff every day, and it has helped keep me sane given the fact that I hate almost everything associated with the political/lawyer/career culture here.

I love beer; specifically, I love good beer and I love cheap beer.  These don't always go hand in hand, but that's OK.  What I hate is overpriced beer.  I will share things about good beer, places to get a good deal on beer and I will call out places that try to rip you off and the idiots who willingly go along with it.

I'm also a huge fan of the Caps and DC United, and I suppose I've adopted the Nats after finally giving up on my beloved O's in recent years.

I also like to share music.  And have music shared with me.

After my hotel had terrible coffee, I went searching for something good. Andina delivered, and the pepper bacon, egg and cheese croissant was delicious.

Ordered a large pepperoni pizza for carry out and it was one of the best pizzas I've ever had. Perfect amount of (delicious) sauce, cheese and meat and great NY style chewy crust. Easily comparable to the best of what you might find in New Jersey or New York, which for some reason is really hard for most places outside of NJ and NY to accomplish! 10/10 would devour again!

This is truly one of those high end, expensive gyms that makes the money you pay worth every penny. It's never been overly packed, even at peak hours, the classes and programs included in your membership are top-notch and plentiful, and the staff are all super friendly and willing to go the extra mile to help you when needed. The entire place is kept immaculately clean and the equipment is kept up to date and rarely out of service. I'll pay for this over what you get at some of the cheaper chains in the city any day.

Fast, friendly service, high quality ingredients (they have anchovies!!!) and the pizza is quite large for the price you pay for it. That's why I come back again and again.

This review is based purely on the proper burger (add bacon), which absolutely lived up to the hype. In a town where fancy and "gourmet" burgers are constantly hyped and then ultimately disappoint, Duke's managed to finally get it right. It's the perfectly seared burger with the just right combination of sauces and veggies. I cannot speak to anything else, because I cannot bring myself to order anything else. The service is also good!

Fast, friendly service, fresh ingredients and many people can make two meals out of the rice bowl due to how much you get. The chicken can be a little dry, but that's not a game changer...just slather it with one of their delicious sauces or dressings!

Barrel Oak Winery is a wonderful place! Great location right off I-66, but far enough from the highway to highlight the rural setting without noise pollution. The scenery is amazing, surrounded by vineyard covered hills with mountains in the distance. There is ample space both inside and outside and plenty of friendly staff to handle the crowds, and the prices are reasonable. Bonus: if you get hungry, they have a pop up with amazing wood fired pizza! Goes great with their wine! Double bonus: the entire place is dog friendly!
