I’ve never been much of a morning person, so for the greater portion of my life, I’ve missed much of the worlds early morning shenanigans. What I’ve learned so far: People love their coffee, and until they get their first cup, they can be savage beasts. This makes me wonder, do real morning people exist? The kind that willingly wake up, not for want of a jump start.

Crystal City


There’s a place in upstate NY called Howe Caverns, its an underground labryinth of tunnels complete with wicked limestone rock formations, stalagtites, and stalagmites. There’s even a river! Since moving to DC I’ve been spending a lot of time underground waiting for the metro. I like to think about what it would be like if the subway were as magical a place as Howe Caverns.

Elite Bar


Some people are quick, and working in a bar you need to be even quicker. In Seattle I had the pleasure to work with this guy right here, the Beartender (Dan). Anyone who has ever worked in a service industry knows the random and ridiculousness that is the customer. Soak that in alcohol and things can get crazy. Dan is a master of witty one liners and I hope to share some of his humor without the need for spirits.
