I need to buy a car. I have already decided on the model (Honda--not SF approved, but not up for discussion, either). I am wondering if I should buy in DC, MD, or VA? Where are the taxes lowest? Any recommended dealers? Thanks.
Marcel's in DC. I biked there, got into an accident, and ruined a brand new pair of gloves. Everyone said "better the glove than your hand" but I'm not sure I feel that way. You guys would understand.
Because I hadn't decide what I wanted to make in advance.
I got the idea for this dish from a nearby restaurant (Domku on Upshur--they specialize in Eastern European and Scandinavian fare) and was excited by the prospect of a cheaper, healthier confit. It came out very good. 1 package chicken thighs 3 cloves garlic olive oil - approximately 1.5 cups black and red pepper to taste 1.

My favorite over-the-ear headphones for travel are Sennheiser PX100s because: -- they are relatively inexpensive (though they are now twice as expensive as when I bought them) -- they collapse into the included carrier, which is quite durable -- they are easy to power, so sound good driven directly out of the iPod The PX100 is an open headphone, so it won't block outside noise at all.

Ostia Antica:
I enjoyed my day trip to Ostia Antica very much. I also enjoyed walking along Appia Antica. Both are well known sites so I don't know if they qualify as "off the beaten path". However, they were empty even at the height of tourist season. My favorite meal was a white pizza with zucchini I had in Trastevere (in a restaurant recommended by Rick Steve's--but it's the dish that I think is worth recommending).
I second the recommendation for the $35 late-night dessert menu. The service is extraordinary. I once went with two friends, and even though we showed up late and were the last people dining, they gave us a ton of comps, and insisted on taking us on a tour of the kitchen.
