Washington Convention Center is now in progress.  DC area food lovers – it’s not too late.  The show continues through tomorrow, November 9.

Moa: Rocking Korean Cuisine and Social Media in Rockville

Many people in my age range (50’s) don’t understand the merits of Twitter and Instagram.  I, on the other hand, am obsessed.  I turn to Twitter to stay informed of local and national news, to connect with DC’s food community, and to follow the 140-character musings of some of my favorite celebrities.  Instagram, the photo-sharing site, […]

My top few are easy to identify, but after that it’s a challenge. It’s hard to compare mind-blowing/budget-busting meals at Minibar and Komi with […]

Nashville: A Noteworthy Scene

Hattie B's

I love “Nashville.”  I wonder how long it will take for Luke to turn evil, so Rayna and Deacon can reunite.  I enjoy the Avery character, partly because I watched Jonathan Jackson grow up on “General Hospital.”  And, although I’m not the biggest country music fan, I appreciate the musical performances.  Oh wait…did you think […]
