Interrupting my blogging silence to bring you a guest post by Jeff Ruether. Once upon a time he was my server at a local restaurant and we somehow got talking about the tipping etiquette. I encouraged him to write a blog post about it.  He finally did and surprised me with it in my inbox.  Tipping is such … Continue reading »

Growing a Garden In Town: Ralph Gildehaus on Jefferson Street

Growing up in Bulgaria, I had zero interest in gardening. When my grandparents planted onions, I played with the cats; when they picked tomatoes, I read a book perched on the peach tree; when my whole family was busy canning veggies for winter, I reluctantly helped while thinking of an excuse to do something else. … Continue reading »

All Good Things Come To… New Beginnings

When I started Re-Discover Washington on a whim on November 3rd, 2011 I intended it to be a month-long project.

However, how we have no excuse since we have Elements of Health Therapeutic Massage downtown! I met up with the owner, Jackie Wehmeyer, on Thursday – interview and pictures … Continue reading »

Unique Ukulele: An Interview with Johnnie Heberer

I first met Johnnie Heberer when I interviewed him, his brother Ethan, and Rachael Coulter for the blog with their “Poetry and Music” artistic experiment. Johnnie plays the ukulele, an instrument I did not know much about, and he’s agreed to perform a couple of times at I.B. Nuts & Fruit Too where I show … Continue reading »

Fall Festival Downtown: Get Your Christmas Shopping Done In Time

I had to miss Fall Festival last year because I was in Europe (terrible, I know!). However,  this year I planned my trips better, and I walked the streets for 4 hours with the camera. Such a hard life… 😉 For more about the festival and all Downtown Washington Inc. events, click here.
