  • Politics & Prose

    Politics & Prose

    5015 Connecticut Ave NW
    M-Sa 9AM-10PM, Su 10AM-8PM. This is a quite possibly the city's favorite independent bookstore, with a non-exclusive focus on politics, and frequent, excellent lectures. It is far off the beaten path, about a mile north of the Van Ness-UDC Metro Station, but it's a rewarding destination.

  • Comet Ping Pong

    Comet Ping Pong

    5037 Connecticut Ave NW
    Mon: 5-9PM, Tues-Thurs: 5-9:30PM, Fri: 5-10:30PM, Sat: 11:30AM-10:30PM, 11:30AM-9PM. $6-about 20. Comet is another great pizza place in DC. However, this is not your average restaurant. There are Ping-Pong tables in the back, clam pizzas, and concerts on Saturday nights. Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives' Guy Fieri called in some of the best pizza he'd ever eaten. A local favorite! Try the wings! Also serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. DEFINITELY kid-friendly.

  • Rock Creek Horse Center

    5100 Glover Rd NW
    Tu-F noon-6PM, Sa-Su 9AM-5PM. Trail rides: $38/1 hour; pony rides: $20/10–15 minutes; lessons (1 hour): $50 group, $90 private. If you have found that visiting the city was a mistake, and wish you had opted for a country vacation instead, it's not too hard to make believe in Rock Creek Park. The horse center offers trail rides, horseback riding lessons (group and private), and pony rides throughout the summer months. The trail rides are very popular, and reservations often run out more than a month in advance. The pony rides and lessons also require RSVP, but are much easier to get. For those visiting on a whim, and not interested in paying these large sums, you can just stop by and pet and feed the horses for free. If you traveled to the city on horseback, they offer full-service public stables for $600/month.

Unlike many Colonial homes in the area, sentimental local folklore preserved the Old Stone House from being demolished.

  • The Greene Turtle Pasadena

    The Greene Turtle Pasadena

    20 Magothy Beach Rd
    Equal parts sports bar and casual restaurant, the Greene Turtle combines the best of both into a different kind of neighborhood gathering place, where friends and family can gather to grab a bite, watch the game, or just enjoy a beer together in a lively atmosphere. It's a sports fan's dream with televisions everywhere - including flat screens in every booth. There's not a bad seat in the house.
