This week, on the D.C. .....

Covering all of your gossip, health and fitness, music, and cultural development needs:

1. Farewell Cap Hill Watering Hole - Capitol Lounge was burned to a bi-partisan crisp on Wednesday. Apparently it was started by an "improperly disposed of cigarette." 'Tis a shame. The bartender was hot and the music jukebox was amazing. Last time I was there I chose "Don't Look Back in Anger" by Oasis and spontaneously started a bar sing-a-long. Who knew that the song would be such an appropriate choice.

2. The weather is gorg. I've been running along the GW parkway along with the masses. I don't really enjoy running but it kicks my ass into shape quickly. Monday I ran from Old Town to the Airport for no good reason besides the fact I made a kick-ass playlist on my iPod.

3. RPM, Bludshot, and Jebus @ State Theater Sat. Aug 25 - This should be a pretty good show of all local bands. RPM has a great Roots/Digable Planets/Chili Peppers/ vibe. I've seen them twice and they are highly enjoyable. Jebus have gotten pretty big on the local circuit as well. Shoutout to Bludshot who hail from the mighty Hoodbridge.

4. Playing tour guide to Malibu Ken on Sunday and showing him around the museums. I need to be strategic about the locations because even though I've done the marathon course of major museums in a day, he can't really walk for long distances (no ligament in his knee and all). I'm thinking of starting in the Archive-Navy Memorial area to hit up the Archives and NGA for the Irving Penn exhibit. But it might be easier to stick to the Smithsonian area. Seeing the gemstones collection always makes me happy. Anyone know of good places to eat around the museums that aren't hot dog stands??
