HOnestly, the only bar I went to in DC was the Black Cat. That was because Al Budd (our only friend) worked there and always hooked us up. If you go on friday, he barbacks. The other bartenders were always great there as well. I'm sure there are other decent bars...I just do not know them.
If you want good Ethiopian, I suggest Dukem on 12th and U. IO think that is the corner, but I'm sure you can look it up. Cheap and delicous! Good pizza: Two Amy's---open kitchen brick oven style pizza off Wisconsin ave, i think. Great meats and cheeses, wines, etc. All the servers looked very cool and I always wondered where they hung out because we never saw them around (again, we went to ONE bar--that may be why!) Again, you would have to look up the location. I loved Logan tavern for a delicious hangover brunch, and if you are into being fancy, or at least eating the best brunch of your life, I would have to suggest Tabbard Inn---you may need reservations there. I literally had one of the most delicious meals of my life there. But, it's pretty expensive. RE: Adams morgan...never went there. Actually, I went once and never returned. A good cheap place everyone goes is Diner, or I forget the proper name, but if you ask around, people will know. It's on the strip and they have good diner food. Asylum is supposed to have good punk djs. I mean, it really depends on your budget. One thing Chris and I did in DC which ruled, was ate...but we tended to go to a lot of nicer restaurants. Mostly because that was our main form of entertainment, and as compared to NY, you can't really find cheap good food in DC---everything is expensive! OH, we used to always go to this great Belgian place calledd GRanville Moores on H street---which is sort of like the new up and coming "punk" (ha!) area. There are a ton of bars (mostly totally cheesy) in the area, except there is this place right next door to GM's which is called The Pug. That place has been pretty fun.
