The Hamilton

Once again I’m back in DC to have lunch with a friend. This time, it was at The Hamilton, a place where I imagine all the power lunchers congregate. It’s a classy place with the lush cushion seats, polished wooden tables, and an attentive wait staff at every corner. Surprisingly, as the lunch crowd rolled in, the formal to casual wear ratio started to change. The place catered to virtual anyone and it’s reflected in their menu. They serve entrees from sushi to Southern comfort foods. An odd combination that…

Hirshhorn Museum

Walking around DC in September can be such a challenge when the weather gets in the way of everything you want to do.

Brother’s Weekend

Well I’m back in Maryland. And for the weekend it was man’cation time with my brother and his friends. It’s really for his bachelor party, but being the little brother I’m just gonna think of it as a guy’s weekend of golf, steaks, drinks, ****, and guns. Yeah, the Texan blood still runs strong. And no, I’m not going to go into too much detail about the night. Because that’s not what you’re here to read about right? Right. So first off, Southwest delayed my flight arriving in Baltimore from…
