A note on Kim Severson‘s New York Times article about D.C. dining, which DeBonis mentioned earlier:

Marvin has a “cool, P. M. Dawn feeling during the week”?

Listen, I understand that there are a lot of people who’d like to pretend that the past eight years never happened. Drawing a line between P.M. Dawn, the Bush I/Clinton-era jazz-hoppers who last surfaced on Hit Me Baby One More Time, and “cool” is an entirely different matter.

Don’t believe me? Watch the following video. If you still think your weeknights would be enhanced by partying like guys who sampled Spandau Ballet, well, actually, maybe you will enjoy living here.

Severson, I’d appreciate an explanation if you get a sec.
