I am early 30 something, good job, want to go do meet some new people in the city (I've been busy), do some fancy things, but not Wallstreet fancy things (not that rich yet), but not so broke that it makes it awkward. Strictly a single serving friends (haha). Sort of the 60's buddy system, where everyone dresses well, friends means a lot, and good manners. I'm little tire of all the complaining on the news and people worrying about things. The fact of the matter is, I think we all worry, but there aren't too many people willing to live it up without being vulgar or too political in this town. Since I won't be in NYC for a while, I figure, why not make DC in to NYC for now.

Remember, crime is only a crime if you hurt somebody or their livelihood.

Considering there are more single, career driven people in their early 30'd than DC than any other states (except for NYC and San Francisco but they tend to get married too fast), it's sorta silly that we have to conform to this bar/club scene here. I did that when I was 25 and it was great, but it seems silly to me now. I want some good conversation in a nice place, sipping a 40 year old whiskey on the rocks after a great dinner.

It's so hard to find this with a group of people here or anywhere.

I think we live in a society where being vulgar outweighs having manners and creative chats. Maybe we did something wrong from 80's on...

Of course, this is just one opinion. But you know what they say about opinions. Opinions are like A-holes, everyones got one.

You are probably not going to find that anywhere, since Childe Harold shut down. Most people (not just in DC) are only intested in hooking up and then vomiting all over themselves.

Go to meetup.com and they have lots of those types of groups. A book group would also be great. I don't like those personally because I don't like being told what to read but it can be fun, in school sometimes I'd be forced to read something but then I'd like it.
