  1. Herring

    You might want to try Grosvenor Market in Bethesda. I've never had it myself, but the pickled herring on display in their deli/prepared foods section always looks really good (I assume they prepare it themselves, but don't know for sure).
  2. Just spotted a "Coming Soon" sign for Los Tios Grill at the Van Dorn Plaza shopping center (the one at the corner of Stevenson Ave. & Van Dorn with the Gold's Gym and the Safeway).
  3. Eating at Nationals Park

    Good information and good news! I was always used to going to the Red Porch for the interesting brews and assumed all of the "permanent" built-in stands would be strictly A-B at this point, so never bothered to check. I think I also remember spotting a roving vendor selling Flying Dog a couple of seasons ago, as is mentioned upthread. If any of them still do, I suppose finding them is catch-as-catch-can.
  4. Eating at Nationals Park

    You really do need to stick with the District Drafts stands, which have a nice variety of rotating local craft brews. Only Anheuser-Busch brands now in the Budweiser Brew House (what used to be called the Red Porch). The days of Dogfish Head and Flying Dog offerings are gone.
  5. Administrative Announcement

    Sorry if this has already been covered, but is the feature that allowed you to see the information about how many were viewing a topic (and the user names of the members who were logged in) gone for good?
  6. An Open Letter To The News Media

    "While a political earthquake has shook Westminster to its core..."
  7. FYI, Heavy Seas Ale House in Rosslyn is currently offering 1/2-price growler fills on Saturdays & Sundays. I got a growler of their Loose Cannon IPA today for $9.99. Xtra Fathers Day bonus - the growler itself was free!?
  8. Actually, I did notice some unusual behavior the first time I clicked on it, so maybe their site got hacked. There is also good info about the event at dc.about.com. That link appears to behave normally.
  9. There is a great opportunity tomorrow and Sunday to gain free admittance to some of the lesser-known DC museums that normally charge a fee for entry. It's the Dupont-Kalorama Museum Walk. Participating venues this year include the Christian Heurich House, The Anderson House, the Phillips Collection, and others. There is a free shuttle that makes regular stops at all of the venues throughout the weekend, but I find that most of them are within reasonable walking distance of one another. If you haven't visited any of these museums or it's been awhile, I think it would be well worth your time (and again, free admission to all of the participating museums tomorrow and Sunday).
  10. I was going by my recollection of the account of this in Ken Burns' "Baseball" documentary series (which I don't think I will ever tire of watching over and over again; best iTunes purchase I ever made). However, I did find this, which says more specifically that he and his son actually showed up late due to "poor travel planning". I couldn't find anything more on this, but it's also from Ken Burns' Baseball; simply a line spoken by narrator John Chancellor: "Babe Ruth forgot his tie".
  11. The search function seems hit or miss as to whether or not my search term will be highlighted in yellow when my results are returned (maybe a function of using Safari, but I would think it would work one way or the other).
  12. Boston Bruins post-cup winning celebration bar tab from 2011.
