From the “Going out Gurus” chat:
Adams Morgan, D.C.: Gurus, I’m interested to hear your thoughts on the Times Magazine article about DC this weekend. While I’m glad to see our town discussed as someplace “buzzing with energy,” I would say that they didn’t really capture what DC is to the people that live here. I would love to know if they consulted any of you and your expert advice for the article.
Rhome: No way they would consult us. Don’t you know that The Post and The NY Times are like the two dudes in Spy vs. Spy? All jokes aside, the article was a bit paternalistic. They lazily painted the city with that same overachiever and politico brush that everyone uses who doesn’t do more thorough research. They highlighted some basic positives but act like the little bit of cool they’re willing to acknowledge is brand new.
