I love DC...I always like to go to the zoo...but thats because I have the mentallity of a 7 yr old. The Vietnam Memorial is definitely an experience too.

Well, I suppose this would really depend on your personal interests, but I really enjoyed the Smithsonian Air and Space museum and just hanging out on the mall.

Go to the poorest hoods you can find. Take a bunch of pics.

Then start a movement that shows how much our goverenment shits on the poor.

Make a lifetime effort to make a change

I've lived right outside DC most of my life.. there's lot of places to go but it depends what you like to do.. as for good clubs there is:

930 club - http://www.930.com
Nation - http://www.primacycompanies.com/nation/index.cfm
Asylum - http://www.asylumdc.com/Home.htm
Black Cat - http://www.blackcatdc.com/
Club Liquid (never been myself) - http://home.earthlink.net/~tcsnedeker/index.html
Phantasmagoria (in Maryland) - http://www.phantasmagoria.com/
The Velvet Lounge - http://www.velvetloungedc.com/

and so on...

If you are into museums and shit..definitely check out the Air and Space Museum.. The Smithsonian.. The mall is always fun for dicking around.. and it's right in the middle of all the museums and the capitol building and whatnot. Just go to where the big pencil dick is.

Oh yeah and they recently opened a SPY museum.. it's fucken badass.. but it's privately owned and they charge something like $12 to get in :frown:
Other than that, all the museums are free

Good Art museums:
Hirshhorn (a good one) - http://hirshhorn.si.edu/
Corcoran Art museum - http://www.corcoran.org/
Freer Gallery of Art - http://www.asia.si.edu/
National Gallery of Art - http://www.nga.gov/

I would stay away from Southeast.. (Anacostia) especially... unless you like getting robbed at gunpoint. All the rich part of DC is in the Northwest and Southwest...

Georgetown has a very cool scene.. you're looking for M street in particular.. lots of cool people.. cool stores.. bars and such. You will find that in southwest.

The metro would be your best way around.. most of the museums and shit you can access from the Orange line.. that will also take you into Georgetown.. I believe the Foggy Bottom stop is the one you want... if you're driving in DC.. heh.. good luck not getting lost  :tongue: That place is hell on earth for driving.. especially if you don't know the roads.. so I suggest you not.

ahh and here is a map of the metro system - http://www.wmata.com/metrorail/systemmap.cfm
Just be careful on the metro and pay attention.. I can't even count how many times I've fallen asleep or something and missed my stop and ended up in the ghetto or somewhere in maryland. If you take the orange line west you will end up in northern va.. stop in falls church and say what's up to my homies :grin:


And here is your website for everything DC - http://dcregistry.com/

have fun :smile: if you want more info just ask

ahh in that case.. he would want to go down P street in Southeast.. take some pictures of the crackheads and the crumbling buildings and nastiness.. and try not to get shot in the process. then head a few blocks into Northeast and take some pictures of the immaculate marble buildings and rich fuckers walking around on streets practically paved with gold (and literally... marble)..it sickening. post those pics side by side and see the comparison..

oh and I don't know if you've been to the zoo lately but it fucking sucks. It's in NW, but it attracts lots of ghetto people... it's not uncommon to be mugged or shot there. Keep in mind DC has had the highest murder rate in the US off and on for years..I'd stick to the "safe" spots unless you are adventurous.. but be warned.. the ghetto is massive.

the botanical garden is pretty cool

visit the holocaust museum as well thats very impressive

also check out the fdr memorial its really good, the vietnam memorial is amazing if you just look at the first name and think of how its one life, then follow the wall and at some points it seems there is thousands of names. its really sickening

korea memorial is a must see at night.

oh and try to find a brazilean steak house, i know there is one around thier somewhere, its awsome.

teh holocaust museum is amazing.... quite an experience.  it may change your view on those world events (may), or give you a better impression of the (in)humanity.

also, just go up to maryland! go to fells point!  maryland is the prettiest :smile:

shroomism and everyone- Thanks for the great tips. I'm in DC now (got in about an hour ago). I have work tomorrow but have tomorrow evening and all day on Wed. to play around. I think I'll check out a couple of the clubs you pointed to tomorrow night and then hit the air & space museum on Wed. I have a great room at the JW Marriott on the 8th floor looking out right out at the Washington Monument, and it looks like the museums and all are right here too. Now, if I just had a hit of acid....

There's no air in space.




There's an air and space museum!
