Washington DC attracts amazing people to live here. There are some of the smartest and most innovative brains in the country. In some ways, DC and the people who live here, are just the best. These 12 things people from Washington DC do better than anyone else.
1. Make small talk
Whether we’re at a networking event, a work event or at a bar, people from Washington DC know how to quickly find out where you are from, what you do, who you work for and probably, your political stance.
After we’ve made small talk, things will escalate to a debate and we will win because that’s what we do.
We know how to drink a mimosa, Bloody Mary’s and order pancakes, whether it’s at 10am or 4pm.
4. Happy hour
If you want to get a beer for $2 and some hot wings for $5, we will show you the best place.
5. Sprint to catch the metro or bus.
The public transportation system has timeline all on its own and it's never what you think it is. If racing through the Metro station was an Olympic sport, DC would have the gold.
There’s practically a festival every weekend in DC. We know how to host them and we know how have fun at them.
7. Go-go music
Go-go music originated in DC and it’s still an important part of the culture today.
8. Staying up to date on current affairs.
It goes with the town. We know what’s happening in this town because for many people, it's their job to know what's happening.
We know politics, we know geography, we know history, we know sports. We are always winning in trivia.
10. Stay healthy + fit.
11. Live on a budget.
This is an expensive city so people in DC have to get creative with their budgets. Luckily there are so many free things to do here. (And we've learned to eat for cheap thanks to happy hour).
12. Accept others.
The fact is that most people are transplants to DC. They were not born here and they come from all over the world but no matter, what we accept them and welcome them. We know it takes many different types of people to make this city great and we embrace them here.
People who live in Washington DC are truly one of a kind.
