Going Out Gurus: March 20, 2005 - March 26, 2005

A Signature Season

Signature Theatre's lineup for the 2005-06 season has just been announced, and I'm happy to report that the opener is "Urinetown." For those of you not immediately excited about a musical named after a bodily function, let me assure you...

What's On Tap at the Brickskeller

Last night, I took a trip to the Brickskeller to check out the new draft beer selection. Yes, the Brickskeller, where the enormous selection of 1,000 different bottled beers (give or take) earned the Dupont Circle saloon a listing in...

Take Back the Pike

If you've ever had a meltdown over Rockville Pike gridlock, you'll appreciate this event. Pike's Peek 10K lets foot traffic take over the road on the morning of April 24. So empowering. The race also promotes public transportation: You start...

Won't Be Disappointed

When it comes to much-talked-about authors, there is certainly no shortage of Jonathans these days. There's hotshot wunderkind Jonathan Safran Foer, who tackles the heaviest of subjects (the Holocaust, 9/11) through the use of somewhat (or, some may say, extremely)...

Of Unknown Origin

The lack of a regular flow of successful hip-hop acts to come out of D.C. remains a long-standing mystery. Most large cities (Philly, New York, Atlanta, New Orleans, L.A., Detroit, Oakland, etc.) have fostered an impressive roster of rappers and...

Tea and Blossoms

In my life it's always tea time, but sitting down to formal afternoon tea is one of life's lovelier pleasures. The historic Willard InterContinental Hotel is now offering afternoon tea in its Peacock Alley, Wednesdays through Sundays from 2:30 to...

Mount Vernon, Square No Longer

If you're looking for the next big nightlife neighborhood, head for Penn Quarter -- and keep going north. The area around Mount Vernon Square and the Washington Convention Center is already home to the neo-soul spot Juste Lounge and the...

The Other Basketball Tournament

If you're hungry for more college basketball and can't wait until Thursday's Sweet 16 games begin, consider heading to College Park on Wednesday night. The Maryland Terps (yes, they're still playing despite missing the Big Dance) are scheduled to take...

See No Evil?

Very few movies have been made about Adolf Hitler, the traditional reasoning being that to do so would be to humanize him. Then along comes this year's "Downfall," a controversial German film that recounts the last days of the Third...
