    I will break from lurking to simply say that Thai Xing is simply amazing, and that BYOB makes the amazing-ness go to 11.

    The fact that it is 0.2 miles from my house makes it go to 12.

    I got the pic from Prince of Petworth and it came via Boundary Stone -- I think he lives near there?

    Yeah, it just came out of nowhere, as did the 2 inches of water that filled my entire basement. We didn't have any flooding on our street though which is good (considering the pic is just a couple of blocks away from us as well), but the workers who "fixed" a prior problem created a worse problem which resulted in our flood. At least that can be fixed and it's not because DC won't fix the drainage problem in the neighborhood.

    is the basement finished?

    Had a flood like that happen in the street near my first place in Old Town - those cars are so screwed. I remember getting in my car after letting everything dry out for like 3 days, started it up fine, drove a quarter mile and then dead car. Never ran the same after that.

    Yup, fully. Though instead of replacing the carpet in the bedroom, we are putting down tile. Wet carpet sucks, and I'm sure this won't be the last time water finds its way down there. And what really isn't awesome is that my Bose subwoofer was partially submerged.

    There's that upscale pizza joint by the Chinatown arch, Matchbox. If a bartender named Henry is working tell him you're friends with Lauren and her friends-free drinking all night.

    Anyone know if that new Penn Social bar is any good? Thinking about going there for Giants-'Boys tomorrow.

    It was great the week it opened a month or so ago. It is a clusterfuck now (went last Friday). Shuffleboard is free, which is great, and they have a lot of fun games, but the sheer volume of people makes playing any of the games challenging.

    We're not out a dime, which is great. The seller is picking making all the repairs for free (it's a renovation and the seller is a developer, and he legitimately feels bad - and I don't think he wants me to sully his representation which I don't think I would do anyway).

    Big time. That's why I'm not really upset about any of it.

    FINALLY hit up two places tonight I've been meaning to go forever. Little Serow for dinner and Boundary Stone for drinks (yes, despite living in Brookland we hadn't made it down for Bloomingdale drinks yet). Both solid.

    The day was so nice we decided we didn't mind waiting outside for a while for LS so got in line a bit before 5pm (opens at 5:30). We were the last people to get in on the first seating (phew!) and it was AWESOME. I think I had somewhat lowered my expectations after some adequate reviews, but we loved it. Every dish. So good. We also heard the waitress say tonight was the longest line she'd ever seen (and apparently there were people that had to be turned away for the night...like couldn't even be seated later). I think the nice weather brought everyone out.

    Also while in line for LS had at least 3-4 people stop and ask what we were waiting for. Ha. After explaining to a few people, for the last one LadyDeacToy answered, "We're waiting to take pictures with Santa Claus...what? They're selling Christmas decorations at Target, can't we wait for Santa?"
