Enjoy the Winter Thaw from the Roof of Tabaq

Wonkabout

Winter will end, one day, and when it does, you should go to Tabaq's rooftop lounge to enjoy the lovely weather. The whole bar is wrapped in glass, with a retractable roof (!) they close in case of rain. Don't let the stout buildings of its U Street locale fool you; Tabaq has one of the best views in the DC.


In addition to its fancy glass crown, Tabaq is a regular restaurant and lounge that specializes in Middle Eastern food and girly cocktails. The drinks are slightly overpriced, with martinis at $13, mojitoes between $8 and $9, and beer starting at $6. They are all buy-one-get-one-free during happy hours, but only on the first floor of the restaurant (aka "the floor without the view").

The menu is divided into large and small plates, with most choices below $20. If you demonstrate a credible commitment to eat, you are rewarded with free bread and olive oil; otherwise you're confined to napkins, booze and scenery.

And, oh, the scenery! Everything we just said about drinks and food doesn't really matter, as you're paying more for the view than anything else. You can watch bums meander the alleys behind every other U Street bar, or you can divert your eyes to the magnificent vista of national monuments for which the bums are too lazy (poor) to ascend the stairs and admire themselves.

Happy hour goes from 5PM to 8PM, Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Tabaq Bistro, 1336 U St NW, Washington DC, (202) 265-0965.

Blanket Disclaimer: Spitting on anybody is dead wrong. Even if it's a Trump.

Still, Eric Trump got to eat a tiny slice of the shit pie women, minorities, poors, disabled, and all of the other people who are deemed "takers" or who come from "shithole countries" experience at some point in their lives: He got spit on. By a woman, according to Breitbart (no link), because we are evil. Woe unto the wealthy white man! Wealthy white men are some of the most abused and marginalized people in the Universe, according to wealthy white men, and Eric Trump is no exception. Please cry for wealthy white men, ok you can stop now. Another group of Americans that are constantly abused, marginalized, and even denied their rights by the very same type of wealthy men that spawn such men as Eric Trump, are called "women." And apparently we are mean as fuck now.

Well folks, we think we have a geopolitical relations first for an American president. We might need to consult with Doris Kearns Goodwin or Kevin Kruse, but we cannot recall a time one of America's purported enemies OR friends has called the president of the United States "retarded" or anything along those lines. We remember leaders hating American presidents. We remember them recoiling like UGH GET OFF ME when an American president tried to give them a friendly sensual love massage during the G8. We remember them literally attacking our democratic elections in order to prevent the inaugurations of potential presidents they despise and fear. But we don't remember anything like this.

President Hassan Rouhani of Iran, commenting on Donald Trump after the Trump administration threw some new sanctions at Iran on Monday:

Iran warned Tuesday that new U.S. sanctions targeting its supreme leader and other top officials meant "closing the doors of diplomacy" between Tehran and Washington amid heightened tensions, even as President Hassan Rouhani derided the White House as being "afflicted by mental retardation."

Here is the full quote, in case you were wondering if something was lost in translation, like that time Vladimir Putin called Trump "brilliant" and Trump was so excited he left a ring of orange jizz around the bathtub, but what Putin actually said in Russian more accurately translates as "colorful" or "shiny." There's no confusion here:
