Best Pizza and Beer in Georgetown (Really!)

Wonkabout

Georgetown -- home of thecocktail-party-lovin' metro-hatin' DC elite -- is not the easiest neighborhood in which to relax. But Pizzeria Paradiso, winner of a gajillion best-of-DC awards, is a refuge.


Pizzeria Paradiso has been around DC since 1991 and Georgetown since 2002. Despite its well-earned acclaim, it's managed to remain low-key and unpretentious. On a Friday night, though it will take a while to get a table upstairs, you can wait with a drink in your painting-the-bathroom best at the "Birreria" (bar) downstairs.

If you haven't already guessed, they serve pizza! And they do so without drowning it in either grease or 800 unnecessary "gourmet" toppings. The crust can be a tad dry, but that's all the better to prep you for the beer. They seriously have one the best beer selections around, especially for a place whose raison d'être is ostensibly food. There are 16 rotating specialty brews on tap, and dozens more by the bottle.

If you find yourself in Georgetown around rush hour (godspeed!), you should reward yourself with a Pizzeria Paradiso happy hour. From 5PM to 7PM on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, there are $4.25 pizzas and half-priced draft beer. It usually takes place in the basement Birreria, but it's moving to the main floor this Tuesday, just to make the bloggers uncomfortable. Oh hey, there's one in Dupont Circle too! (Fine print: it's moving soon, and it doesn't yet have a happy hour.) [Pizzeria Paradiso]

Pizzeria Paradiso - Georgetown: 3282 M Street NW, Washington DC, (202) 337-1245.

'Miga and Carlos' by Wonkette Operative 'Chica'

It's Father's Day, which means it's time for Yr Dok Zoom and his son to go to brunch and check out the downtown Boise Father's Day Car Show so we can ooh and ah over the very same Corvettes 'n' Mustangs 'n' lovingly-restored classic cars that are there every year, and I will probably once again point at the '68 Beetle converted to run on electricity and say, "Oh look, a Voltswagen!" Traditions matter. (Kid Zoom is 22, so I may also/instead meet him for cocktails later like grown up human people.)

Don't worry about any deep thoughts on the Meaning of Fatherhood here -- we're just going to enjoy the goofy side of dadding, which as far as I'm concerned is the best thing I've done with my time. Especially since my role model for parenting was the unnamed Dad from "Calvin and Hobbes."

As any fool knows, ice rises to the top of liquids because it's cold, and just wants to be closer to the sun so it can warm up. It's all in the book you get when you become a father.
