Ode to Claudetta, My Dinner Cruise Date

Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you go on.
Far across the distance
and spaces between us
You have come to show you go on.

Near, Far,
wherever you are,
I believe that the heart does go on.

Once more, you opened the door
And you're here in my heart,
and my heart will go on and on.
Love can touch us one time
and last for a lifetime
And never let go till we're gone.
Love was when I loved you,
one true time to hold on to
In my life we'll always go on.

Near, far,
wherever you are,
I believe that the heart does go on.

Once more, you opened the door
And you're here in my heart,
and my heart will go on and on.
You're here, there's nothing I fear
And I know that my heart will go on.
We'll stay, forever this way
You are safe in my heart
and my heart will go on and on.

Let's Break for Froyo...

1006 F St. NW
Washington, DC 20004
It's becoming obvious that cupcakes are OUT and froyo is IN. Being an avid frozen yogurt consumer, I'd like to make known a new dairy haven that's I've recently discovered in downtown Washington. Frozenyo, an a-la-carte frozen yogurt mecca, provides customers with a unique froyo experience befitting individualistic diners. Not only does Frozenyo offer 16 flavors and over 30 toppings to their customers (not to mention the free hot fudge), but this new business accomplishes the feat while maintaining a cool and comprehensive, self-serve environment. That's right; customers serve themselves, paying a mere 39 cents per ounce for this decadent, yet slimming, treat. Take a break from life and indulge in a bowl today.

Best Restaurant in DC

Bistro Du Coin
(202) 234-6969
1738 Conneticut Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20009

In my approximation, DC must have a billion OKAY restaurants. This place, however, is GREAT. Not only does Bistro Du Coin serve ammmmmazing food, but the prices are pretty reasonable too. Nothing's stuffy about this place. Take my advice and try it.
I'd like to endorse Pierrepont Hick and their bow ties...

Being a relatively new company based out of Minnesota, Pierrepont Hicks, puts out some pretty rockin' ties. They're a little different but they definitely pop. Be unique and buy one of these today...

Need I say more?

Sarah Palin

Her stylist may be good, but regardless, her politics definitely need tailoring!

Michele Bachman

Eat Here

Taqueria Nacional
The Fish Taco's are muy, muy them before it's to late!

The Sage

This post is dedicated to Sage Dunston, a fearless leader and current Legislative Corespondent in Washington, DC. Sage may just one day be President or Chief of the Cherokee Nation.

Sage is very political. By promoting his opinions and policy objectives using his natural flair for diplomacy, Mr. Dunston has moved up in the lofty office he inhabits.

Sage is a boss, a chief, and the man. It is my opinion, that Sage will one day become our generation's Native Ameri-CAN!
