The amazing weather this weekend reminded me of the local summer fun to be had at local area beaches. The Good: Sandy waterfronts. Cooling, salty waves. Luscious, vitamin D rays. Fun with family and friends. Dogfish beer. Crab. The Bad: Hours of battling through weekend traffic congestion.
However, bus company DC2NY has come to beachgoers’ rescue with a summer bus service to both Rehoboth and Dewey Beach starting Memorial Day weekend. Riders will enjoy wi-fi, electrical outlets at every seat, a frequent riders reward program and a bottle of water for the journey. There’s not a less stressful way to start your beach weekend then by letting the bus driver tackle the traffic while you facebook with your friends or catch up on your Hulu watching.
Cougar by digitalART2
Is DC too nerdy intellectual to have a cougar scene? That’s the conclusion reached in this hilarious McSweeny’s undercover cougar investigation by local Holly Jones.
First things first, if you’ve had your nose buried in legal briefs for the past few years, let’s get you up to speed on the terminology. According to Urban Dictionary (the ultimate source for cluing in the clueless), a cougar is:
A 35+ year old female who is on the “hunt” for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male. The cougar can frequently be seen in a padded bra, cleavage exposed, propped up against a swanky bar in San Francisco (or other cities) waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path. Man is cougar’s number one prey.
