I saw prometheus in Silver Spring this afternoon. Man I hadn't been to downtown silver spring in so long, they have done so much there. I was surprised. Got there early enough and walked around the farmer's market they had set up too, pretty nice.

A bus caught fire and nearly exploded in front of it last week:



...but I haven't been there since last year so I can't speak relevantly to food or drink.

I live in Downtown Silver Spring , now . I like it a lot. Still looking for the right place in the Trinidad . The contractors always beat me to the punch.
I think H st has the best vibe. I love it down there.

on Hst? everywhere is great! except these places- in order of suck-e-ness-

TruOrleans - This has to be the worst bar restaurant in DC in terms of food and service

Boundary road- over rated to me

The ice cream/ water ice next to the Queen Vic ( unless you want to buy low grade drugs)

The rest of H st is F-U-N. The street is themed for the most part. You all types of bars, pubs, and restaurants.

Some of peoples fav's

Queen Vic ( British Pub)
Granville Moores ( Belgium Gastro pub )
Toki underground ( ramen noodle bar go early or except a huge wait MUCH better than momfuku)
The PUG ( great dive bar)
Rock-N-Roll Hotel ( live music and huge roof deck)
Beer Garden ( speaks for itself)

The list goes on and on. It's an older crowd than the knuckle heads in Adams Morgan. It's not really accessible by metro. You have to drive or cab it. The closest metro is Union Station.
That should be a good start for you.

Yeah H street is pretty good. I'm rarely there cause it's in the middle of nowhere but it has a lot of variety (not as diverse as U street though) and civil compared to Adams Morgan. Some more suggestions:

Rock and Roll Hotel for concerts and dancing.
Lil Miss Whiskey's they usually have good DJs. Cash only bar though
Biergarten Haus. It's a beer garden with large outdoor seating.

Here's a list sure to start a lively debate: The 25 Douchiest Bars in Washington, D.C. I take issue with the lack of representation from the 14th & K corridor and Clarendon. But the top three on the list are spot on. Number one was the first bar that popped into my head before I clicked on the link.

I've been to 21 of those spots shog[1].gif
post #72 of 81
The question is, Did you enjoy them? And did you return? lol8[1].gif

I actually like numbers 4 and 5 on the list. Maybe I haven't been to them at Douche Time, i.e., after 10 PM on a Friday or Saturday night.

I went to Biergarten Haus over the winter. It was definitely not my scene, although that night I was looking to oogle young women and get drunk, not enjoy craft beer. Lots of fat dudes with huge beards the night I went there, and lots of couples. I really think more guys there had shaggy beards than those without that night.happy.gif

I could see myself going there if I was looking to have a few drinks with a friend to catch up but not for what I was seeking that particular night...shog[1].gif

That made me laugh. Definitely agree with some of those that I've been to. I used to go to Tommy Joe's when I was home for summer from college.

Joffrey the apple doesn't fall to far from the tree, does it.

DC is a pretentious city. So the douchery can get HIGH but I don't find it as bad on H st.That's why I enjoy H st. Great food, drinks, and people. Maybe because it hard to get to it can keep a certain clientele. Adams Morgan is a show and to young and ESL people can go piss off.

Side note, I am having another pig roast on September Saturday 29th. We do a solid job with the pig and last year we begged people to take booze home with them.
