Embrace Your Inner Humbug
Holiday time in Washington- love it, dread it, but like most things in life, it's best to just embrace it. But not all of it.
Stay away from the shopping malls. Go for an urban hike around that OTHER mall downtown and check out the lit up evergreens. Or, if you're like me, forget the hiking part and spring for a drink on top of the Hotel Washington. Take in one of the best views of the city from there, or turn your back on the whole thing and hide out in the Round Robin bar at the Willard- a very DC place to be.
Preserve your sanity further by spending more time with friends and less time pondering the price of fruit cakes. Instead buy 'em a ticket to a show!
There's tons of music coming up, and hungry musicians hoping to see you there live and in person. Take for instance this Saturday at IOTA. The Cravin' Dogs and the U-Liners want you to come to their Roots Rock Holiday Party. Two fun bands- one low price.
