Crystal City represent! Freddie’s Beach Bar and Restaurant, the gay bar that my darling wife descibes as looking “as if South Beach threw up,” (she means it with love) won the Tina Turner award for best float in the Capital Pride Parade[pdf]. Congrats to Freddys and their partner in this venture, the Crystal City BID (which is clearly working hard and seems like it’s been everywhere this year).

A few more pictures here and here, though curiously the tin man always seems to be the center of attention. Wonder why? Maybe they should have done a float about the other OZ.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
