Just like mom makes: comfort food in the District

Colonials Weekend has come and gone. That pot of homemade chicken noodle soup that mom left in your refrigerator sits empty, growing some sort of funky residue with the rest of your dirty dishes in the sink. Yet, as the weather grows chilly, you yearn for a taste of something warm and familiar. What’s a […]

Team has strong finish

Perfect. Well, almost. The GW golf team finished out their storybook fall 2005 season, arguably their best since the 1940s, in perfect fashion. The Colonials carded a 576 to finish tied for second Monday in the Old Dominion University Seascape Invitational in Kitty Hawk, N.C. “We were very happy,” coach Scott Allen said in a […]

Eric Zapel: Quigley’s: a space for creativity, not Chipotle

Their burritos are delicious, don’t get me wrong, and those handy instructions printed on your napkin certainly make the whole process of eating something as wide as your neck much less painful. However, I have to say I am very opposed to the idea of Chipotle opening their newest location in Quigley’s pharmacy. Now, I’m […]

Bar Belle: The Austin Grill

The 9:30 Club is not the only place to see live music in the D.C. area. And the overt rudeness of the staff last time I was there has prompted a whole new goal in my Bar Belle adventures: it’s time to start finding bars with good booze, small covers and great tunes. Fortunately for […]

Student groups complain of perceived lack of SA funds

Disagreement among the Student Association Senate Finance Committee and student organizations has deepened within the last week as an increasing number of organization leaders said they have been denied funding from the SA. About 15 representatives from student organizations attended Tuesday night’s Senate meeting in the Marvin Center to deplore the lack of funding they’ve […]

Sean Scully: Artist lays another brick in the wall

If you are claustrophobic, beware: I would not recommend going to the Phillips Collection’s new exhibit “Sean Scully: Wall of Light.” The first half of the exhibition, comprised of Scully’s early abstract paintings, is quite nice to look at but the second half – the actual “Wall of Light” series – is like walking through […]

FBA threatens to use legal means to block Square 54 plans

A local community group is trying to halt GW’s plans to use Square 54 for commercial use and has signaled it is prepared to use legal means to do so. Members of the Foggy Bottom Association, a group of community residents, have asked the mayor to refuse to let D.C. zoning agencies review GW’s plans […]

Freshman phenom: Kevin Eskowitz

Freshman Kevin Eskowitz came to D.C. for the first time as an 8th grader on a school fieldtrip. Since then, his love for the city has grown and now he’s looking to infuse the local music scene with his acoustic musical stylings. “I really feel like there’s a music scene that’s bubbling within, and (D.C.)

$5 – $10 – $20

If you have $5 Go on a search for free public art – in a portable toilet. A project called Found Sound has placed five portable toilets in various locations around the city, where they serve as listening booths for the work of curator Welmoed Laanstra until this Saturday. You have to go inside the […]

November has concerts aplenty

Here’s to November, a month filled with funk, jams, punk-rock, Thanksgiving turkey and Bob Saget. What combination could possibly be better? As always, the 9:30 Club will host a wide range of live performances, and this month the shows will go beyond the basic rock and hip-hop genres that usually grace its stage. On Nov. […]
