Tonight, I'm on my way into Washington, aka Expensive Drink Central. But hey, it's my buddy Evan's birthday and he wants to throw down. So, we'll throw down.
I want to take a moment here and veer off on a tangent.
Evan and I studied together at the University of Maryland, College Park. Ever been out to a bar in College Park? Well, there are only four or five of 'em. That's one bar for every 5,00-6,000 students.
College Park is one of the most under-served college towns in the country.
Any city with such a huge college smack in the middle of it should have a movie theater, dozens of bars, clubs, cafes, non-chain restaurants and a bowling alley all within walking distance. But does College Park? Nope. What a disappointing city.
Tangent over. What are you guys up to this weekend?
