Fall 2013 in Review: City Life

Washington, D.C. is about more than just business and government.  The neighborhoods of the District combine with federal Washington to make a city with a unique personality.  When you are eating free lunches at think tanks, attending Nats/Wizards/Capitals games, discovering a favorite local coffee shop, jogging past the Capitol, going on scavenger hunts on the bus, hearing oral arguments at the Supreme Court, getting late-night pies, and applying for a library card at the Library of Congress, life in D.C. is rarely boring.
