WELL, 2017 WASTED NO TIME GET­TING AMPED UP, DID IT? Spring is nearly here, and with it, my chronic overuse of chron­i­cally overused clichés. “Spring has sprung.” “New be­gin­nings.” “Spring into style.” I guess tech­ni­cally that last one is a pun, but it counts. For­tu­nately, most of th­ese phrases get edited out by my dili­gent man­ag­ing ed­i­tor (thanks, Ous­sama!), and you, dear read­ers, are spared.

On the heels of the in­au­gu­ra­tion and on the eve of White House Cor­re­spon­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion Din­ner week­end, there’s no eas­ing into this year for Wash­ing­to­ni­ans. It re­ally is a new sea­son, both lit­er­ally and metaphor­i­cally, and DC is an in­ter­est­ing place to be. In our of­fice, we’re gear­ing up for back-to-back events, plan­ning for the year ahead, and launch­ing a se­ries of new so­cial me­dia ef­forts (fol­low us on Twit­ter, In­sta­gram, Face­book, and Snapchat, won’t you?). And out­side of the of­fice, there’s so much to ex­plore as the weather be­gins to break and the sun lingers a lit­tle longer each day (hal­lelu­jah for all that Vi­ta­min D!).

With this is­sue, we’re launch­ing a fab new sec­tion called The Source, mak­ing the back of the mag­a­zine a des­ti­na­tion for the best things to do, places to go, and peo­ple to see in the District. We put our net­work to work, com­ing up with in­tel and in­sider tips for restau­rants, sa­lons, and much more, so keep an eye out for rec­om­men­da­tions from some city in­sid­ers you might just rec­og­nize. Stick with us in 2017, and we’ll keep you con­nected.

En­joy the is­sue!
