Well then, tell it here!
If you are a local, have been a local, planning to be a local, or just want to pretend to be a local and want to share a tip or tidbit, let me know.
The whole point of this blog is use the combined power of local knowledge to save those poor, hapless tourists you see wandering the Mall. You know who I'm talking about. The poor bastard holding the Metro map upside down, trying not to admit he's not sure if that's the Capitol or the White House, with two kids pulling him in different directions (one of them down), and a wife saying a whole lot without a single word.
I know, I know, there's a fair bit of sang froid to be had in mocking him, but he needs a hand. He doesn't need more web sites to filter through, or guide books to buy and never read; he needs the unvarnished truth that we, as locals, take for granted. Is the Newseum worth twenty bucks? When is the best time to come to Washington? And where do you pee on the National Mall?
If you have a unique local viewpoint, either a better way to see the most common destinations or an out of the way gem that visitors from afar would love to see if they only knew about, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm interested both in people who wish to contribute semi-regularly as well as those who may just have one or two things to add.
I promise to pay you absolutely nothing, and may, or may not, buy you a cup of coffee someday. With a bonus of a beer if it really, really works out.
