I was already long gone from Miami. Next up is Arizona and then Michigan.

Is it a campaign tour?  A concert tour?  I loved your last album!

fleeb - is work life.. Is fine. Fly into airport.. Cab to hotel.. Work

Have you paid the TSA your $85 fee to get on the very long line instead of the really long line?

You're lying. Nobody in Michigan goes to concerts. They only go to shootings.

They prefer to be called "Coneheads." Shortening it to "Coney" is considered rude.

But aren't they from France?

Yes. "Frogs" is acceptable but "Coney" is racist :)

If Coneys is racist, is Bee's Knees racist?

You write 'Bee's Knees', but I see 'Bee Gees'.

As if there's a difference? There are a lot of famous Bee Knees songs ...

"Stayin' Alive After A Bee Sting Even Though I'm Allergic"

"How Deep Is That Sting?"

"To Love Some Pollen"

"I Started A Hive"

"More Than A Queen Bee"

"Hive Talkin'"

This question is primarily for fleeb, but I might as well post it in public to perhaps inspire a discussion.

My family is planning a trip to Washington DC next month. Typical sightseeing and museum visiting type of thing. fleeb, I know you live somewhat close to DC and might be familiar with the area. I also know that outside the capitol area, DC is kind of a shitty town. Can you provide any travel suggestions?

We want to lodge somewhere that's not in a lousy area, but probably not "in town" because that would obviously be expensive ... I'm sure the in-town hotels are fancy and expensive because the people who stay there are spending tax dollars. A neighboring town might make sense. My son did some googling and is suggesting that we stay in Arlington.

The other question is travel. We're taking the Amtrak down there (which for railfans is going to be part of the adventure!) so we won't have a car. There seems to be a big subway network down there.
Is it safe, or is the subway a high-crime location?

Any other suggestions?

Because this is public and open for discussion...  My sister lives near DC.  


This might be family fun, it is called Escape The Room.  You are "locked" in a room and you have to solve a mystery in order to get out.  You work together with your family to solve the problem.  Most likely you will be grouped with others work with them.  It requires reservations.

The Air and Space Museum is always kick ass.

The wife and daughter might enjoy the botanical gardens.

This might be a little out of the way but Jimmy's Old Town Tavern.  The owner is from Buffalo and I believe he worked at the anchor bar (chicken wings)  They have good food.

This place has several locations and the food is very good.

Whoops, for some reason I didn't see the "We are taking the train and wont have a car" sentence.  Ignore my restaurant suggestions.

A friend of mine stayed a night at the DoubleTree/Hilton Hotel (Crystal City)  It is near the Pentagon. I met up with him, he thought it was nice and so did I.  My niece lives a few blocks away, it is a decent area.

And don't forget the Dulles Smithsonian Air and Space Extension (I actually think it's near Arlington).

Enola Gay
Space Shuttle.

Is awesome

Thanks for all the suggestions, I'll put 'em on the list. I am the most interested in my question about whether the subway is safe for family travel.
