The Earthquake happened as we know, and we had conflicting reports the the Washington Monument was leaning or had large cracks. Now a month after, we know, it is not leaning but does have some cracks at the top of the monument! Here is a press conference from National Park Service and raw footage while in the Monument with tourist.
As of Yesterday they started to check the cracks, from the pictures here I post.

OK, a couple months ago I did a post on some of the top spots to get Mac-n-Cheese here in DC. Well I finally went and tried Ulah, after much fanfare. We got seated immediately on a Friday night on U Street go figure, Outside dining on U street is the best, perfect people watching. So I finally tried the mac. HOLLY HELL. This has to be the best mac ever which was my appetizer. I then ordered the Lamb which was so good it totally fell off the bone, it was glazed with something sweet can't remember but it was so good, came with small pieces of bread and under the lamb was a pond of pasta noodles. this is a must to go back and try the brunch. I give Ulah four **** stars out of five.

The wait staff was very friendly and told me what she liked and what the restaurant was known for or what their main dish was. Which I ordered. The rest rooms were clean and plenty of space to find a table. All very good reviews.
I want to give a special thank you to Amanda over at Barracuda Film & TV. She saw my blog and gave me something interesting to post you to gentlemen out there wanting more of a classic look for this fall/winter. The clothes are all from H&M Modern Classics collection that is now in stores. Tom Stubbs shows us how the this fall/winter 2011 we will be seeing pinstripes, tweed and three piece suits for the modern young hip guys.
