I was dragged to 18th Street Lounge this weekend and was surprised to see actual people inside. I thought they stopped being hip two years ago. Still, their has-been status is cemented with a quick glance across the street at mingling crowds waiting patiently in make-believe lines at 1223 and Play.
The $7 price-point for Absolut/Stoli drinks (as opposed to the DC club standard of $8) offers amazing savings… if of course you don’t have to pay the $10 loser cover charge. If you are going to hold your birthday party at somewhere lame, please have consideration for your guests and pick a place that at least has a guestlist.
No, it really isn’t sunny outside.
Places you should never go to:
1223 – “hey look at how much makeup i can cake on my face! hehe”
Platinum – invasion of the hairy Middle Eastern man
Steve’s Bar Room – if there is a fire, everyone will die trying to escape from that one elevator
18th St. Lounge – for people who wish they were in new york
In other news, Tequila Beach, Polly Esther’s, and Lulu’s all shut down in the same week. Good riddance. I predict that all the cheesy people who went to those places will eventually start polluting Adam’s Morgan. I won’t notice. To non-DC’ers: Adams Morgan is the place in DC where people go to get drunk and act like an idiot.
