The show that never ends

No offense to you New Yorkers out there, but when they nicknamed New York “the city that never sleeps,” they must have forgotten that D.C. exists. D.C. truly never stops moving. (Well, unless you’re on the Beltway.) Everywhere you go, there’s something happening. There are so many things to do here that it’s impossible to do them all.
I’ve lived in a D.C. suburb my entire life, and I haven’t done nearly enough in the city. Through this metblog, I hope to learn as much as I teach. (Is that deep or what?) If nothing, it’ll force me to pay attention to what’s going on in the city. (That’s a good thing, right?)

    DC closes pretty early: 2am call on weekdays and 3am on weekends. In places like Miami or Las Vegas, they never close. In NYC, I think last call is at 4am. But, to get away from all my drunk talk… =)
    New York city’s transit system runs around the clock, at least as far as I know. DC’s closes down, at midnight on Sun-Thurs and 3am on Fri & Sat.

    Yeah, I wish DC actually was open 24/7 but Em is right. DC has a curfew, so to speak. Make sure everyone gets home at a decent hour. (gag) I guess those in the hospitality industry don’t mind – at least they get to party a little longer once the door closes on the last customer.

    Would be nice if I didn’t have to worry about missing the last train on Wed night out at iPod party. ‘Cos I don’t want to break the bank taking a cab home and save those few dollars so I can drink and piss away later.

    It is lovely to hear the sound of birds chirping – you know when you’ve been out and spent every moment of that day awake, carpe diem. I wish DC was open 24/7. (sigh)
