The Bar Belle: Clyde’s

Clyde’s (Georgetown location) 3236 M St. I am not a wine aficionado, nor could I even begin to explain the difference between a Cabernet and a Merlot. In fact I was too drunk on wine during “Sideways” to understand that whole Merlot issue. But I do like to drink cheap wine and large amounts of […]

It’s a rare occurrence for graphic novels to make a successful jump to the silver screen, as film adaptations often fail to capture the verbal and visual essence of a story. But thankfully, “Frank Miller’s Sin City” (Dimension Films) was not altered in this transition. “Sin City” isn’t a perfect film, but it’s the closest […]
