    There's no AC in the summer? [​IMG]

    They do, they just kept it on the lowest setting last summer. You could hardly feel it unless you were standing in front of, or under, a vent... which I always tired to do.

    As mentioned by me already, considering the amount of tourists seems to increase exponentially in the summer along with everyone who lives/works in DC, the AC doesn't really make much difference anyway especially around rush hour.

    Metro is pretty good.

    Riding the metor will make you hate tourists and their fucking luggage clogging up the lines.

    The fair isn't especially expensive, and the whole system is really easy if you get the electronic card (SmartPass).

    Orange Line 4 lyfe.

    Put the deals in the DC Events Thread that no one ever seems to post to.

    +1. What he said. Metro kicks ass especially if you live near a station.
    The Metro is great. I don't live in DC, but I use the Metro whenever I'm in DC. Easy to figure out, cheap, and reliable. I've never had a problem.

    I'm partial to Eastern Market on the orange line.

    That's the only one, though. And it doesn't really hold a candle to all the fun trouble you can get into off most of the red line stops.

    They only thing I remember seeing at EM was my puke on the sidewalk as I stumbled out of Hawk n Dove.
    That was a long time ago though.
