In spite of the chronic unhipness of classical music, the editors of DCist, past and present, graciously allow me to write for the site as Classical Music Contributor. So Thursday night I went to hang out -- all too briefly -- with the folks from DCist, at the Happy Hour they host regularly for the staff and associated friends. This event was at a place new to me, the Cue Bar. As with all the DCist venues, the Cue Bar is a cool place to hang out, in this case in an almost unmarked basement location on U Street NW, between 11th and 12th Streets. There are photos, but I had to leave too early to be in any of them.
