In D.C., I lived in Dupont Circle - the most wonderful neighborhood in the world.
Ok, that might be a bit of a stretch, but it IS fantastic. So fantastic that several of my friends eventually followed in my pioneering footsteps and migrated to my 'hood as well.
To get them off on the right foot I thought we should all do something to explore their new neighborhood. We went to the First Friday event where you tour all the crazy art galleries filled with terrible art, then landed at one of my favorite neighborhood hangouts: Kramerbooks.
Over food and lots of drinks we decided to have outings every now and then for just us - the Dupont Dwellers.
I got a Dweller email today: Cins is planning a Cinco de Mayo dinner at her place.
I told the crew I was happy I still made the cut - even though I will obviously not be attending.
And even though my new home near the state Capitol technically makes me what we call people who do basically everything on Capitol Hill in D.C. - a "Hill Rat."
