Fodor’s 2017 Washington, D.C. guide book released yesterday; Where to Eat chapter updated by me

Fodor's Washington, D.C.: with Mount Vernon, Alexandria & AnnapolisNever mind Hillary’s memoir, yesterday’s top book release was Fodor’s 2017 Washington, D.C. guide book (you want to eat crap?). I updated its Where to Eat section. Buy it now at fine book stores or Amazon. Thanks!

For this project, I

  • determined 150 restaurants worthy of inclusion
  • wrote reviews for restaurants new to the guide
  • updated reviews of restaurants that’d been in the previous versions and verified their accuracy
  • determined the top 15 percent of restaurants worthy of the Fodor’s Choice honor
  • wrote and revised the introduction to the chapter and descriptions of each neighborhood

‘Condé Nast Traveler’ publishes my article on new Smithsonian National Museum of American History exhibits

Two thoughts from the Smithsonian National Museum of American History’s new series of exhibits, “The Nation We Build Together,” which I just wrote about for Condé Nast Traveler

  • The issues America’s grappling with now—women’s equality, voting rights, religions tolerance—are part of a long-term push towards liberty for all that’s achieved a lot.
  • 300 years later, I can’t believe we’re still dealing with this shit.

Anyway, read the article.

I join the campaign trail for a morning, covering the Trump International Hotel Washington DC opening for Fox News

Trump International Hotel Washington DC opening

Yesterday the U.S. presidential campaign checked into the Trump International Hotel Washington D.C. when Donald Trump joined his family for the new opening’s ceremonial ribbon cutting. It was a  bit different from other hotel openings I’ve covered: Omarosa and New Gingrich were present, as were about 400 political reporters. And while travel writers were wondering where the champagne was, those political reporters seemed thrilled to be getting free coffee. 

Anyway, read my article and view my photos for Fox News:
