The majority owner of the Washington Capitals (NHL), Ted Leonsis, just opened a web video service called Snagfilms that shows full-length documentaries for free with a couple of commercials mixed in. I watched the entertaining Super Size Me, an experiment where the protagonist eats nothing but McDonald's food for a month. Three meals a day. In the movie, it is mentioned that only 6 items on the McDonald's menu are sugar-free. I can vouch for a 7th menu item that is sugar-free that is not mentioned: hot tea. Snagfilm's commercials were the greatest. Two commercials for candy. Irony is the greatest comedy.
Speaking of sugar, yesterday and today I took some R&R time from work. Yesterday, I rode the Mount Vernon Trail, which is about 20 miles each way from my condo in the city. Because of this, I had some calories to spare, and since this afternoon was rather. . . warm (97 F/humid), I decided to stop by the new yogurt shack a couple blocks over from by place, Mr. Yogato. Mr. Yogato is on 17th Street next to the cafe that used to be one of the few cybercafe's in the city -- I think it is merely a cafe now. DCist mentioned that Mr. Yogato was started by a few of the folks at SpaceX's Washington office, so my interest was piqued. Click on the pics for bigger versions.
The inside decor is spare, but they have a nice picture of SpaceX's 2nd launch attempt. I have seen this perspective a couple of times before, but I wonder how they managed it -- helicopter?
The yogurt was very good. They had a mojito flavor that was a little too sweet for my tastes, but the tangy was delicious. I had raspberries as my topping.
The shop seemed well frequented for such a new shop. This was reinforced on my way home when a couple of women in the elevator in my apartment building had cups full of yogurt from the shop. They said that they had been there several times and that it was "supposed to be better than tangysweet." You will have to judge for yourself.
