Celebrate the end of July with Tequila!

And lots of it, courtesy of El Centro D.F.’s newly announced bottomless tequila brunch. For those of you that just relived every bad Sunday morning from your college years, chill out. It’s truly bottomless – food and drinks for $35. That does include their Micheladas, Bloody Maria and agua frescas, made with the aforementioned tequila. Thanks to GalTime for picking this one up for us.

Shiny New Bike Stations

Greater Greater Washington broke the excellent news that Capital Bikeshare is adding 32 new stations and expanding 18 existing locations. I know quite a few Borderstanis who have replaced their public transportation commute for a bike at one of the stations. Do we expect more crowding? Is it too aggressive of an expansion move? Can we get some bike lanes to go along with the expansion?

D.C. Gay Repub Hosts National RNC Chair

What happens when a gay member of the D.C. Republican Committee hosts an ‘intimate lunch’ with the Republican National Committee Chair? No, it’s not a dirty joke (although I’m intrigued by what you could come up with…), but in fact a move by local Repubs to flex their muscles with the national party. The Washington Blade has more on the likely agenda of yesterday’s lunch — the disconnect on the D.C. and national party on LGBT issues.

Jewnity at Public This Sunday

You read that correctly. Jewnity is an event to bring young, local Jewish professionals together and will be this Sunday at Public Bar in Dupont Circle. The number and range of sponsors (over 20) indicates the importance the Jewish community is placing on creating a sense of community in D.C. Washington Jewish Week has more.

Forbes Blog Calls U Street “Party Street”

Why I am I linking to a somewhat hard to follow blog post by Kashmir Hill at Forbes, of all places? Because, my friends, it is not every day that U Street is (a) compared to Bourbon Street in New Orleans or (b) beats out Adams Morgan for the title of ‘party central.’ So here is the piece and if someone can let me know how the second paragraph serves as a lead in to the rest of the article, which I think is about the power of social media, I owe you a Coke.
