Welcome to Our New Site

By Anne Kenderdine

As Going Out Gurus, we're never content to stay in one place for long, and we don't like our site to get old, either. Today we launched our new site with a new name, the Going Out Guide, to describe our focus on nightlife, restaurants, movies and the arts. You'll also see some new features that make the site easier to use.

When you want quick ideas for the best in town, try our Best Bets, where Washington Post writers have picked their favorites in dozens of categories, like Best Romantic Restaurants, Best Cocktails and Best Dance Floor Action. To start your own list -- of your favorite dive bars, bistros you want to try or museums to explore with your weekend guests -- look for the link that says Save to Go Out List and fill it up with your picks. You can keep your list private or send it to your friends.

We've also improved the way search works in the Guide. If you type in a name of a bar or movie, it will automatically start to fill the search box for you -- no more having to remember how to spell Zaytinya. We've added detailed search tags to our listings, like wine bar, celebrity chef or cupcakes, so you can find more of what you want. We also heard readers asking to be able to browse in more than one area -- say, to find restaurants in Adams Morgan and Dupont -- so now you can do one search to cover all your bases.

Those are some of the new options we're excited about, but the real fun in the Guide is when you discover something new about D.C. So take us for a spin, and let us know what you think.

Please restore the flyout menus from the menu items in the browse restaurants section. i.e.: if I click on more locations, a flyout menu displays to the right, listing the other locales - where I can click the desired location.
