So after several months of scrutinizing DC blogdom, or at least a small slice of it, I've come away with these perceptions:
1. Everyone has more disposable income than they can spend.
2. Everyone -- and I mean everyone -- hangs out in the VIP rooms of bars and lounges across DC.
3. Amendment to #2: Everyone goes to about four different places repeatedly.
4. Everyone attends Gold Cup and anything else with a Cup behind it.
This is a world unfamiliar to me.
Caveat: Everyone is obviously not everyone.
My income is generally spoken for the moment it is deposited into the bank.
I have never been in a VIP room and I'm fairly certain I've never been in a club that had a VIP room (except maybe a few times I was at 18th Street Lounge. Don't know if they have a VIP room).
The places I made several repeat trips to back in the day: Common Share, Nanny O'Briens, Brickskeller, Fox and Hounds (I'm fairly certain I spent almost a third of 1993/94 there), Black Cat, City Blues Cafe (defunct).
I couldn't give a rat's ass about Gold Cup, Courage Cup, or anyone else's cup. Unless it's the Stanley Cup.
Catciao is prolific and on top of things. He should have more readers/comments.
Governess is pretty much right on.
I think I need to branch out my blog reading.
