City Paper is not for tourists
There is no “I” in team, especially if that team is Fleetwood Mac. That’s what Stevie Nicks told the New York Times when she announced that she’d be heading out on a solo tour this year. And while Fleetwood Mac is certainly a good team to be on, when you’re Stevie Nicks, sometimes you just have to go your own way. And while I love Fleetwood Mac with all my heart, I am happy that Stevie is back on the solo circuit. Over the course of eight studio albums, Nicks has proved that she’s not just a vital voice in Fleetwood Mac, but an incredible songwriter on her own. So it’s a blessing that she’s dusting off deep cuts from her catalogue to take on the road, and it’s even more of a blessing that she’s bringing The Pretenders along to open.

Warm up with a bowl of Chesapeake seafood stew at Johnny’s Half Shell. The dish combines shrimp, calamari, mussels, and fish in a fresh tomato and fennel broth ($22.50). You might want to spring for an order of fries ($3.00) to dip in the broth. The restaurant recently reopened in Adams Morgan after long tenures in both Dupont Circle and Capitol Hill.
