Real Washingtonia

To find things and places, try The Washington DC Motorcade. A neat little search engine, just say where you're headed and it'll tell you what's along the way.

Dining, Coffee, and Nightspots

Cafe Myth.
Located in Georgetown, and slightly pricey, this is a Internet Cafe and Restaurant.
Youth Scenes

Please see:

Atticus Used Books & Music.
Hip, happening, literate. Not what you'd expect from the looking at the rest rest of Washington. This is the modern version of what Washington used to be.
DC ArtBeat. Local artists and musicians promoting multimedia experiences.
DC harDCcore - punk, do-it-yourself, Rave, you name it. This is totally happening.
DC Food Not Bombs. Collecting almost-outdated produce, and feeding homeless and impoverished people, and providing vegetarian food for political rallies.
DC Underworld. Lots of news about local shows, rallies, and other events.
Goth in DC? check HERE!
Cataomb DC. This is a Saturday Night only Gothic/Industrial Club, located near relatively-safe 17th and "L" Streets NW Washington DC. It's a very nice club, and the DJs are tops.

Performance Venues

See also ClubDC, which is an advertisement-carrying commercial site that reviews various nightclubs.

The Capitol Ballroom. Dancing and live shows! Reputedly excellent. Scary neighborhood.
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (Kennedy Center). Possibly the cultural Heart of the Nation.
Nightclub 9:30. The new location of the 9:30 Club is a far cry from the original location at 930 "F" Street NW. It's now at 815 "V" Street, NW, just a block or two from Howard University. This used to be the old WUST Music Hall, where I once saw a truly amazing show featuring the Butthole Surfers, Johnny Reno and the Sax Maniacs (incredible if you like saxophone ensembles fronted with powerhouse Trower-esque guitar), and the Dead Kennedys. It's huge. It's a great place to see bands.
Looking for all sorts of Washingtoniana? The Washington CityPaper is loaded with opinion, information about clubs, what's where, and that sort of thing.
