OK, New Year’s wasn’t so bad
1 January, 2006
I ended up leaving my sick houseguest at home after midnight and went out anyway.
Here’s something interesting about clubs in DC that I never noticed in any other city–although it may be that I didn’t go out in the same way in other places. If you go in a group and act reluctant at the cover charge, the doormen will bargain with you. It probably wouldn’t work in the thick of the evening, but it’s happened to me early and late in groups of 4 and 5. (Also, covers seem ridiculously cheap here. Competition, or a homebody populace?)
Did I just not go out enough in Chicago to notice this?
