City Paper is not for tourists
In this week’s City Paper, you’ll find:

- Jonathan York and Arthur Delaney on the amazing things to be found in Georgetown University dumpsters around graduation time—-and the people who take advantage of it.

- In Cheap Seats: Dave McKenna on the recent triumph of the D.C. Divas women’s-football team over their archrivals, the Detroit Demolition.
- In Show & Tell: Jessica Gould on how a tiff between a clubowner and an alcohol investigator was as much sartorial as procedural. Plus: an obituary of Bird Noises guitarist Joseph Amoury.

- In Young & Hungry: Tim Carman tries to recreate Michel Richard‘s legendary lobster burger.
