After McFadden's landed at the top of Complex's list of D.C.'s Douchiest Bars, I spent a little time defending them. They're OK—they're a kind of fun college bar!
Well, turns out I was wrong, because they went and did something heinous (above). No, not the caramel apple shots (although those too). DCist points out that, with [...]
This was the year that Marion Barry discovered the concept of nudge.
After a debacle—no turkeys!—at his 2010 annual giveaway, the Ward 8 councilmember announced plans earlier this fall to revamp the affair by using the prospect of a free bird to encourage positive behaviors: To get a turkey, constituents would have had to do things [...]
This week, various poverty rights orgs tried to blogged on what they're thankful for.

Call it 2 Turkeys 1 Former Veep Nominee. No this is not a secret PETA video. This is the latest installment of Sarah Palin: The Swan Song.
Maybe this is the end of the media blitz. Maybe we will never see this clown again. Maybe we will never get to hear her whine about waving-the-white-flag-of-surrender, hear [...]
Call me a Communist. But I don't like turkey all that much. If I did, I'd eat some of those awful oven-roasted turkey sandwiches at the deli, but frankly I'd rather eat the plastic that encases the meat.
