The Sovereign

I typically try to avoid busy bar times. I don’t enjoy jostling for a seat and the bartender’s attention. I’ll sit and wait patiently because God knows that bartender is busy.

Tiny Pieces of Heaven, a.k.a. Cheese

If I’m being totally honest, I’m highly motivated by cheese. Lactose intolerance would be a life threatening issue. I ingest cheese pretty much every day with out fail.

Rooftop Tour: Roofer’s Union

A few friends and I, inspired by the warmer weather, thought to ourselves why not try all the rooftop bars in DC?¬†Little did we know that there were so many. And by so many I mean there is no physical way to visit them all in one summer unless that’s literally all we did every…
