Going Out Gurus: November 25, 2007 - December 1, 2007

December Mixtape

Live music pickings are pretty slim in December as many bands stay off the road and take it easy for the holidays. No big deal. That just makes for a convenient time to feature some worthy local acts. There should...

Q&A: The Residents of 'Avenue Q'

Not since I was 6 years old have I been so excited to see puppets dance and sing. When I was little, I liked to hear them sing about being nice. Now, it's all about the Internet, racism and economizing...

David's Wish List: Best Seat In the House

I'm never good at making gift wish lists come holiday time. This year the only thing I can really think to ask for is a new belt. Maybe some Starbucks cards. But if we're talking about the ultimate gift, there...

Critters Glitter at the Zoo

Last night marked the opening of ZooLights, the National Zoo's first annual display of sculptures made out of holiday lights. The glittering walk-through display is smaller than some of its drive-through counterparts around town -- think Watkins Mill, Seneca Creek...

Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

If we could look back over all the questions that we've gotten since Got Plans? began, we'd have to say that "Where can I ride a mechanical bull?" would be near the top of the list. Blame regulations, licensing or...

News to Digest

Though you may still be recovering from the gluttony of Thanksgiving, December is nearly upon us, which means that it's time to celebrate an Italian feast at a few restaurants and experience Italy at a new spot in Rosslyn. It's...

Jen's Wish List: Starry Nights

Thus far, my fellow Gurus have crafted wish lists that are grounded in some semblance of reality. An expensive reality, but reality nonetheless. Me? I'm hoping for things that are never, ever going to happen. That way, when Santa doesn't...

Janet's Wish List: Evenings In or Out

Sleep snob that I am, I'm dreaming of spending my nights on 100 percent Egyptian 500-thread count crisp cotton sheets (spare me anything on sateen, puhleeze) from the likes of luxe linen manufacturer Matouk. A set (meaning duvet cover, shams...

Destination Restaurants -- for Cocktails

Washington has seen an explosion of lounges, Belgian beer bars and classic dives this year, but over the last few months, my thoughts have turned toward four new restaurants. Hudson, Restaurant K by Allison Swope, The Source and Westend Bistro...

Fritz's Wish List: Drinks With Friends

While I could use a new flat-screen TV, home wet bar or made-to-measure suit for Christmas, the holiday season is really about spending time with the people who mean the most to me. That's why, if I had unlimited funds,...
