Agreed! Once you go outside of the 140 characters... it's just like every other platform. This will be interesting.

I agree with you. I like my interactions on Google+ better as well. But I don't think it will be around forever. So enjoy while you can! :-)

Introduction
As a Digital Media Consultant, I focus on marketing campaigns that build online communities and increase brand recognition. I specialize in helping organizations and clients who are seeking to transition from traditional forms of communication to emerging new media and social engagement opportunities. In addition to my digital media expertize, I have 15+ years experience producing live television and special events. As a result I am able to develop specialized programming and events that are creative, targeted, measurable and memorable. You'll find me cycling around the nation's capital, or sipping a good glass of wine while eating amazing food and living life for the joy and laughter.

Love siting outside on a warm fall evening people watching as I done on lentil soup and warm bread dipped in olive oil and herbs. I followed that with a chicken kabob that came with rice and steamed veggies. Everything was fresh and yummy. I'll be back.

This is my new FAV local watering hole. The food is exceptional and after some begging, the chef gave us an impromptu cooking lesson.

In the summer, sit outside on the patio. In the winter, you have a choice of two bars. I always get the same thing... a burger and aioli fries. Yum!

They have the best salads and wraps but in the summer, the specials can't be beat. Try the watermelon salad. It's so very good!

The service exceeded expectations and the food was first rate. I LOVE an attentive front of house and wait staff. This new DC hot spot did not disappoint. To top it off, the extensive wine list was exceptional and the food was first rare. I'll be back! My friends and I share appetizers but my entrée the ATLANTIC COD 27 (white bean puree, romesco, shishito pepper) was out of this world good.

I love the vibe and the atmosphere here. There's a mix of locals, tourists, hipsters and Capitol Hill types. The food is tapas style and every dish was better than the last. I'm partial to the grilled cauliflower, fish tacos and watermelon salad.
