The Parisians have their Cafes, the Persians have their Kebob Houses, the Greeks their Tavernas; and Washingtonians? Tryst!

What a cool place right in the heart of Adams Morgan I discovered over the weekend!!! it is called Tryst near by 18 St & Columbia Rd. If you are a Washingtonian or visiting Washington, you just got to give it a try.

The place is somewhere between home and work we all need a ‘third place’ to go — where we can escape the stresses of everyday responsibilities but still connect with high speed internet access if you choose to the outside world. Tryst is defining that third place for us. You can linger over a latte, scarf down a sandwich, or get dressed up for a date and sip martinis. Here, you’re part of an eclectic mix of characters, art, and ambience. They got espresso drinks in the Northern Italian tradition, fine French pastries, hand crafted, rustic breads for our gourmet sandwiches, and an extensive selection of international beers, wines, and liqueurs that you won’t find most places. And, OMG! If you are an espresso fan, you won’t miss the knowledge, skill, and talent they put into every espresso drink they make.

Here are two great clips about Tryst I found on Youtube:

Where would SNL get their content if it wasn’t because of Awesome DC?

Where would SNL get their content if it wasn’t because of screw ups over and over by our White House staff in Awesome DC? Those of you missed SNL last night, you got to watch this. It is hilarious!

And, no! I didn’t stay home either. I was at Lima like always partying:

DJ Korean had his second appearance in Washington DC! He had come all the way from Moscow to Lima. It was raining Chicks last night.

Here is more info about him I found on internet:

Best DJ in Russia by Remi Martin Awards & Main People 2007 and Official DJ of Russian National Soccer Team! Currently resident at Russia’s famous “Goro Production” project.

Pavel Loginov (aka DJ Korean) is one of Russia’s movers and shakers, and is firmly entrenched in the Moscow club scene. He is a club promoter, a producer and remixer, and a damn fine DJ!

His DJing career began back in 1994, playing British Progressive House in the «Skazka» club. He soon moved to the «Ostrov» club in Moscow where he introduced clubbers to a mixture of House and Progressive music.

In early 1997 he began to work at the all dance Radio «Station 106.8 FM», Moscow’s answer to Kiss FM, where he produced and hosted the morning show. In 1998 he organized the wildly successful «Discohouse» parties in Moscow with his good friend DJ Duck. Later that year he left Station and started promoting the «Apache» night at the world-renowned Titanic club. It was there that he got to know DJ Fonar, one of Russia’s biggest DJs.

He is currently resident DJ at some of the best clubs in Moscow, including Most, Circus, the Buddha Bar and Alibi, and is a founder member of the Atmosphere collective, a coalition of Russian DJs and party promoters.

But it’s not just Moscow — since 1997 Korean has DJed all over Russia, playing in Odessa, Samara, and as far away as Novosibirsk and Krasnoyarsk in Siberia, as well as abroad, in Europe and Dubai. He has appeared at some of the largest parties in Russia, including the 50,000 strong «Vostochny Udar» («Eastern Blow») parties in St. Petersburg, the biggest raves in Eastern Europe. He has also played many gigs in London including Going Places, Medicine and Loosen Up.

Pavel also somehow finds time to go to the studio and is currently working on an album with his partner Mutabor. Their first single «Paris Dakar» was released on Oven Ready/Invent. Aside from this, he has been busy remixing a number of Russian artists as well as turning his hand to mixing compilation CDs.

A pioneer of the progressive house sound, but equally able to play funky vocal-led house if the situation demands, Pavel Loginov is definitely one of the best DJs of the Eastern European new breed.
