Apparently it's my fault that she screens her phonecalls. [mp] [yesterday]

Yeah saw that last week, pretty neat. Empty terminal though. (Good and bad, I suppose)

I didn't even know police forces having instagram accounts was a thing, but apparently it is. The NYPD even has time for one. But no one gets it quite lik

There is an overwhelming selection of olive oil here. And more varieties of cheese than I have ever seen

Yes!  I want these features in my next car, but I'd prefer something a little smaller, maybe a sedan model.

Fabulous exhibits. Check what time they are doing a demonstration of the Difference Engine. It's fascinating! Also, i really enjoyed the IBM 1401 room. This is a super place!

This is a great little spot if you like a little variety in your pizza. The Calzone Ring is a circular calzone with a ramekin of red sauce in the center. Delicious and perfectly cooked. They prepare everything fresh so if you're in a hurry don't expect to drop by and get it to go; it's better to call ahead or have them deliver.

Teaism is one of those friendly, hidden gems that combines a peaceful atmosphere and great food. There is a huge selection of tea flavors. My typical fare is the yakatori chicken and a chai shake (ask for it to be made with chocolate!). Stop in if you need a break after a busy afternoon on the National Mall. There is a lower level with more tables so the place is larger than it first looks.

The "new" and expanded Ray's location has not lost any of the flavor. The burgers are cooked to perfection and have a good selection of toppings even if you don't want to spice it up (but of course it's better if you do!). If you have a chocolate shake with your lunch be prepared to slip into a delightfully satisfying food coma later in the afternoon.

Everybody loves doughnuts and Krispy Kreme is the best at making them. This Krispy Kreme is always clean and bright. I love hanging out there with friends, sitting on the sofa and chatting while enjoying an original glazed. The employees are typically pleasant. The only downside I've noticed is the espresso machine seems to break down too often.

Braddock station is well kept. Note that there is very little official parking there but it's usually not hard to find parking in the surrounding neighborhood for a few hours in the evening. On hot summer days just take the first available train (whether yellow or blue) a couple stops closer to DC so you can wait underground where it's cooler while you wait for your desired line.

This place is by far the best pizza and beer spot on the King Street Strip. The employees are always pleasant and really know their stuff. As there are too many kinds of beer to choose from, I recommend going with a flight so you can try a handful. If you want to live on the edge, tell them to surprise you with selections of their own choosing.
