Cinco De Mayo Festivities!

I’m pretty sure that you didn’t miss it, given the size of the crowds at the bars around Dupont. The Obamas celebrated with mexican avocados; a bunch of you made a questionable decision to mix booze and dairy products at the opening of Pinkberry, which opened today as reported by DCist.

Post Decides the Capital is Hip

The Washington City Paper had a great time writing this piece mocking the Post‘s story on the rise of the young, cool crowd in D.C. I wish they’d make up their minds over there; Courtland Milloy seems to think this cool crowd is ruining the city, remember? I can freely admit I’ve bemoaned the fact that hipsters are literally crawling over the city, but let’s be real, if you have to note it in one of the nation’s top papers, it is probably not ‘cool’.

Bourbon Advice From Hank’s Oyster Bar
