Help me find a hot male stripper who's ok with gays!

I'm helping plan a gay couple's bachelor party that is happening TONIGHT, and the male strippers just cancelled on us. Ugh. I know that the couple will be disappointed if there's no nudity involved in the shenanigans tonight. We were hoping to not have to go to a strip club, but rather have the strippers come to a house in the 'burbs. Help me find 1 or 2 gay friendly male strippers in the D.C. metro area [more inside]

Landlord Discovered Error in Billing, Now We Owe 10 Months of Parking Fees

The management company at our apartment building just discovered that they had not been charging us for parking 10 months into our lease. We had been paying the rent amount and the parking amount for the first two months, but kept getting overpayment notices telling us to reduce our monthly payment, so I thought our number was in error. Now they want all 10 months paid back though they admit the error was on their end. Are we liable for the back fees even though we were told by them to lower our monthly payment? This is in Washington, DC.

Can you describe Washington DC in NYC terms?

I might be relocating to Washington DC. I've visited a few times as a tourist but I know nothing about what life is like there. I've found a few discussions in the archive about moving to DC, but they seem to be written for someone who is trying to figure out where to move to. But I'm not at that point yet. I'm mainly trying to get a sense of what DC life is like for someone whose career is not in politics. Really what I want is a description of life in DC that uses NYC as a frame of reference, comparing neighborhoods, transportation, dining, night life, etc. [more inside]

Looking for a 3-4 bedroom house for rent in Georgetown or Tenleytown. Help?

Moving to DC, looking to rent in Tenleytown or Georgetown. But, I'm having a hard time finding good "house" rental listings. Ideally, we're looking for 4 bedrooms (3 plus an office of some sort), close to metro, some kind of yard would be nice. We're looking to keep it under $4k per month. Starting in June and we're here at least 2 years. Any thoughts of where there might be some good listings (besides Craigslist), or if you know of a good one for rent that might fit, let me know. Thanks!

Deserted beach camping in the DC-area

I'm looking for extremely primitive beach camping sites (preferably on the Chesapeake) in the DC/MD/VA area. I'm talking about places with no running water, no bathrooms, nothing but nature for miles around. Assateague Island's backcountry camping sites are a perfect example of what I'm looking for. Any suggestions? Thanks!
