Dec. 1st, 2004

Last night's dream was a body-snatcher affair that has something to do with getting infected through terrible music. Terrible music like Green Day. Was extra terrified for some reason that the cat would get infected. Kept the parents and the cat at arms length at all times. Unfortunately had to see devolutionary get snatched; we had to shoot him. It sucked. Then the cat woke me up by batting me directly on the nose.

Finished up Goldmine class; everything about administrating Goldmine seems incredibly straightforward. Back next week for Crystal Reports, which is bound to be infinitely less straightforward.

Friday my uncle wants me to think of hip places (in DC, specifically) to go for dinner, and hip places to go afterwards. I am utterly bereft. I never go into DC anymore! Nerves already on overdrive.

I like Green Day.

AIGH what is wrong with you people? Green Day make me want to punch people. Except that "time of your life" song.

where in DC? what does he mean by 'hip', exactly?

if hip= "I go out every weekend in NYC to secret password things like milk and honey", then no clue.

if hip= "I want to go somewhere with a bit of atmosphere where people are enjoying themselves" or "I'm interested an good food with some eyecandy and no stodginess" then it might be doable.

For example, in Dupont, one could do dinner at Komi (good food primarily, and some vibe) and then drinks at one of the clubs on connecticut or at Firefly.

On the waterfront, dinner and drinks at the Mandarin Oriental.

In Penn, dinner at Zaytinya and ....?

in Georgetown, Cafe Milano is still where the beautiful people eat.

For random ideas, check out Tom Sietsema's online chats at the Washington post if food is important, or the Going Out Gurus discussions. (one today, you could try asking them!)

In Penn, the Teaism has booze! :)

yes, but it is only open till 10:00.

Curses! *shaking fist at an uncaring universe*
Dec. 2nd, 2004 03:04 pm (UTC)
perhaps i will call and see if the restaurant takes reservations.

Hrm... thanks so much for the suggestions! I have NO idea what hip means for my uncle. Lately I will only eat at places that I don't have to wait and that don't play ridiculously loud music, so needless to say I don't venture into the city much. He says he will se staying in Georgetown. This also means driving, which makes the baby jesus cry. *sigh*

I will check out the page! I figured I would have to hit the WP. Maybe I can convince him to go into Adams Morgan where at least we could eat at a relatively quiet indian place. Oh who am I kidding. I never go out on weekends, and my imaginings of finding a quiet place with no wait are probably ridiculous.

To quote from Reservoir Dogs:

"You shoot me a dream, you better wake up and apologise."

And in the vein of your dream, have you seen this? Strangely similar.
Dec. 2nd, 2004 11:11 pm (UTC)
Whoah. That's ... creepily like my dream, and no, I haven't seen it. hee.
Dec. 2nd, 2004 11:12 pm (UTC)
Oh and I apologize - but like - trust me, you weren't Alex anymore. They had you.

What's hipper than a place with belly dancers? Take him to Marakesh.

And then go see bronzemountain's exceptionally hip brother's band.
Dec. 2nd, 2004 11:12 pm (UTC)
This is a brilliant idea. If we can get into Marakesh! :) I could metro if he met me there...
Dec. 2nd, 2004 09:13 pm (UTC)
My personal suggestion would be Jaleo.
Dec. 2nd, 2004 11:12 pm (UTC)
I didn't like it when I went to the one in Bethesda. :-/
