9780028626192: Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Washington, D.C. (2nd ed)

For readers who are tired of the promotional fluff and brochure-speak that characterizes most travel guides, heres a fresh voice. The Irreverent Guides offer an insiders look at each destination, and take a fun, honest look at everything they review. Its not every day you open up a guidebook to find categories like:*Most overrated museums*Weirdest bunch of public statuary*Bars where you can hear yourself think*Where the supermodels eat and where they dont*Eurotrashiest hotels*Hotels for people who hate conventioneers*Luscious love nests and lavender lodgings*Restaurants that dont live up to the hype*Swingin supper clubs with attitudeThe Irreverents give you the lowdown, the inside story. They have nothing to sell but the truth, which includes a balance of good and bad. They praise, they trash, they weigh, and leave the final decision up to the reader. Our writers take a special pleasure in leading you where other guides fear to tread.
