Books: I love fiction and historical fiction, poetry, and the
occasional nonfiction book if it covers a topic that's of interest
Movies: I'm an "easy" movie-goer, in the sense that I'm easily
entertained when it comes to movies. I love the experience of going
to see a movie (and I have to get popcorn, even if we've just eaten
dinner) and I'm not very picky about the movie itself. I'm pretty
open minded and can enjoy a fun animated film just as much as a
drama. Probably the only genre I avoid is horror films (I've only
occasionally watched them). I love, love, love theaters like E St.
and Bethesda Row where the movies are interesting and unusual and
we can enjoy a bottle of wine during the movie!
Live Shows: I'm always up for catching a music / theatre / dance
performance. I enjoy going to the Kennedy Center but also love the
9:30 Club, Howard Theater, Birchmere, Bohemian Caverns, Warner
Theater, Woolly Mammoth, etc. And I love curling up in the lounge
at the Tabard Inn on a Sunday night to listen to jazz music and sip
an Old Fashioned.
TV Shows: For favorite TV shows I would have to say - So You Think
You Can Dance, Grey's Anatomy, The Office, Parks and Rec, 30 Rock,
Castle, The Mindy Project, New Girl, Modern Family, Top Chef,
Project Runway, Arrested Development, Up All Night, The Tudors,
House Hunters International, and anything with Anthony
Music: I'll admit it - I listen to a lot of pop music :) I have a
35-45 minute commute everyday, and my NPR and top 40 stations get
me through it! But if you look through my iTunes library I think
you'll find it's pretty diverse.
Food: I love good food, and living in DC there is never a shortage
of new restaurants to explore! I'm one of those "eats just about
anything" people - I don't have any allergies or dietary
restrictions, so I guess I'm an open-minded foodie :)
