TOILETS WITH A VIEW: BALLIN’ BATHROOM EXPERIENCES

Houses come in all shapes and sizes. Some are big, some are small. When you say “come over to my place,” it might mean drop by my 600-square-foot very humble abode or join me for a dinner party in my 4,000 square-foot sprawling Victorian mansion. However, no matter where your home is or what it looks like (inside or out), most homes have one thing in common: a place to go to the loo…. TOILETS WITH A VIEW: BALLIN’ BATHROOM EXPERIENCES

With the cool startup frenzy of the last few years, I keep imagining a world where entrepreneurs have run out of unique business ideas. Thankfully, that’s not the kind of world we live in. Instead, I am constantly amazed by the perseverance of good ideas –– not to mention the ability to dream them up in the first place. As I’ve explored during various points in this series, DC has an impressive amount of startup seeds that are working hard to grow and flourish in our city and beyond. Today, I want to dive deeper into a startup called Super. DC(ISH) STARTUP SPOTLIGHT: SUPER

COOK LOCAL: LOCAL FARMS TO FREQUENT IN THE WARMER MONTHS

Spring, despite playing hard-to-get with us while chilling with Old Man Winter and giggling at our desperation for a hint of hope (no really – any indication) that warmth was on the horizon, it seems, is finally here to stay. It’s done toying with our heart strings and torturing us with its coyness. No, now, it seems, Spring wants to come in, pollen blazing, and act as if it never was acting all weird to begin with.

HOW TO AIRBNB YOUR PLACE LIKE A PRO

If you haven’t skipped out on a stark hotel room and opted for the cozy, home-team advantage of an Airbnb, you might want to reconsider your on-the-road rituals. After all, Airbnb has gone above and beyond to solidify their network of eager hosts as a great way for anyone to see cities near and far as a local –– and in the comfort of a home, rather than beneath scratchy hotel sheets and fluorescent lighting. So often, we think about where to go when you’re escaping your home, but what about how you can put your house to work for you? HOW TO AIRBNB YOUR PLACE LIKE A PRO

DC STARTUP SPOTLIGHT: HATCH

If you don’t have an app, are you even a business? In all honestly, apps, though they sound fancy and sophisticated, aren’t right for every business model. But for many, they offer a modern, unique way to interact with both current and potential customers. However, for smaller businesses, the act of building an app can be daunting…and way too expensive. Hiring an agency to perfect a digital endeavor can be a kind of business pipe dream. Luckily, there’s a DC-based startup working hard behind the scenes to bring apps down to earth and make them a possibility for all businesses –– or at least most. DC STARTUP SPOTLIGHT: HATCH

DC STARTUP SPOTLIGHT: GIRLS’ NIGHT IN

As the nation’s capitol, DC has naturally become a hub for innovation, startups, and businesses with backbone. We’re constantly pushing the conversation, and proud of it. While our scene is full of some of your “typical” startups (side note: can a startup actually be typical?) such as software companies, tech companies, and non-profits, we also continue to have folks push the envelope as entrepreneurs in other, more out-of-the-box areas. One example is a local startup catering exclusively to women: Girls’ Night In. DC STARTUP SPOTLIGHT: GIRLS’ NIGHT IN
