Wings, Cheddar, Bacon, and Beef: An Unhealthy Photographic Tour

When I started as Washington City Paper's bar food blogger back in August, I knew this gig would involve a lot of eating. But I couldn't say for sure exactly what I would be eating.

The Fall of the King of Beers and First Encounters With Booze

Stetsons isn't the only bar that that has discontinued Budweiser beer. One of my favorite Mexican joints, Los Tios in Del Ray, has removed the ubiquitous lager from its menu recently as well. In fact many bars I've frequented don't carry Bud.  Kev29 who commented on my recent post thinks that DC just isn't a Bud […]

The Vienna Inn: Defining the Bar Food Genre

When my participation was first announced at the Young and Hungry Blog one commenter requested clarification saying… Good first blog topic: definition of “bar food”…. :-/ I’m a few weeks into my effort and still not sure I could offer a definition to  satisfy the folks at Merriam-Webster.  For now I suppose I’ll just have […]

In China, Don’t Judge a Beer By Its Bottle

According to US government estimates, global corporations lose something in excess of $60 billion annually to Chinese counterfeiters. DVDS, books, handbags, jewelry, shoes, . . . Name your material desire, and some firm in China will likely be standing by to supply a fake rip-off of it. Beer is no exception. China Daily reports that police recently arrested […]

East German Brewery Named Official Sponsor of Germany’s World Cup Team
