Does anyone remember the old Washington Theatre Club in DC?
The Washington Theater Club was founded by John and Hazel Wentworth in 1957 in Georgetown. Shortly thereafter it was relocated to a former carriage house at 1632 "O" Street, N.W. In the 70's John and Hazel divorced and Hazel partnered with one of the WTC directors Davey Marlin-Jones to keep it going. A new theater was built at 19th and L Streets but failed to thrive. This location was turned into a cinema complex.

There was a club called the Quiet Knight on the corner of Belmont and Sheffield. I think it was a second story room that is now a tanning salon. I'm sure other people may know much more about this legendary Chicago venue, but I do know that it hosted early shows by Bruce Springsteen and Bob Marley. … It was the Quiet Knight on the second floor. We saw Logins and Meseena there in around 1972 If I'm not mistaken, The Quiet Knight was also located in Old Town on N.Wells during the 1960's. Thanks to all who answered! The place on Wells was the Earl of Old Town I think. The Quiet Knight at Belmont and Sheffield also was known as Tuts for a while in the 80s. (MORE)
There may well be some private (and expensive) stage or dance schools that you could easily find on google, but most places won't take students to specialise to such an extent until 18 for a good reason. You would be much better advised to go to a good state sixth form college with a strong drama de…partment that offers drama, dance or performing arts A levels alongside other subjects, thereby keeping your options open whilst still develping the drama. Then if things work out go to RADA or the Guildhall at 18. (MORE)

Because the city of Washington is in the federal "District of Columbia" as opposed to any state, and to differentiate it from Washington state. The city and district are now territorially identical. The capital of the United States was named in honor of George Washington, and the district was nam…ed the Territory of Columbia, because Columbia was a poetic name for the USA in use at that time. The District of Columbia The District of Columbia is a federal district that takes up exactly same area that the city of Washington is in. Therefore we could refer to either DC or Washington and be referring to the same place. The city's not in a state, but it is in the country, and so it has to be in something, so it's in a district that we named Columbia. But why Columbia, you ask? Columbia was one of the old poetic names for our nation, kind of like we use "America" or "the States" or "Uncle Sam" today. It references Christopher Columbus and a woman's form vaguely akin to the French Marianne. It fell out of popularity about 100 years ago, but we used to have pro-American songs like "Hail Columbia" (which, incidentally, is still the Vice President's anthem as opposed to "Hail to the Chief"). CBS used to be called "Columbia Broadcasting System". But why specifically did we name the district Columbia? It's partially because in 1791, the year they began planning the new Federal City and had to come up with a name for the district, it was one year short of the 300th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's trip the the new world, and there were still some people grumpy that we hadn't actually named our new nation Columbia instead of something unwieldy like "The United States of America." So we named the new Federal area "The Territory of Columbia." The first stone of the White House, which was the first official Federal building, was placed the day after the 300th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's voyage, so you can see how these things dovetailed nicely. There was overwhelming support for naming the city itself Washington, which they did. George Washington always just called it the "Federal City" because he was modest, and his name for it was used on occasion for many years afterwards. Finally, we call it Washington, DC because we don't want to confuse it with the state. (MORE)
No, but his plantation is not very far away ( around 30 miles,I think.) He bought land in DC as an investment.

In 1790, the US Constitution allowed for the creation of a capitalcity so an area in the District of Columbia - which is stilllegally referred to as such - was chosen, a city founded and in1791 named after George Washington, the first president of a unitedstates. Although largely thought of as bein…g the very first Americanpresident, that honour actually belongs to Peyton Randolph, who wasthe first president of the Continental Congress or 'United Statesin Congress Assembled', in laymans terms the original thirteenstates. George Washington was the Continental Army'sCommander-In-Chief. There were thirteen more presidents before in 1789 GeorgeWashington was sworn in as the President of an independent UnitedStates Of America. The capital of the US is named very appropriately after the firstPresident, without whom there would have been no US. Washington wasa great President whose leadership was essential to the success ofthe Revolutionary War. Peyton Randolph (and all of his many successors, including a fewwho were chosen but never served) was never President of theUnited States ; as pointed out above, he was only Presidentof the Continental Congress , which was an unpaid, ceremonial(as well as nearly powerless) position vaguely similar to thecurrent Speaker of the House; it bore absolutely no resemblancewhatsoever to the President position in which Washington laterserved. When Randolph took office in 1774, the Revolutionary Warhadn't even started yet! So how could he have been President of theUnited States before the United States even existed? Additionally, "United States in Congress Assembled" was the namethat the US went by during the brief roughly six year period afterthe war, when the Articles of Confederation were in effect (wellafter Randolph's term had ended). The Articles laid down someground rules for electing the President of the Congress; otherwisethe position remained the same as before. As the Constitution wasnearing completion and ratification, the last President of theCongress resigned, and the position was never re-filled. Fivemonths later, the Constitution had been ratified, the Congress hadtaken its current form, and Washington became the first Presidentof the United States. At best, claiming Randolph (as well as his successors up to CyrusGriffin) was President of the bellends prior to Washington isintellectually dishonest, based purely on the similarity of thepositions' names and nothing more. Washington DC was named after President Washington because he hadbeen the commander of the Continental military during theRevolutionary War; while not a particularly good field commander(he lost more battles than he won), he was a highly skilledorganizer and logistician, an inspirational leader, and he wassmart enough to take advantage of opportunities when they arose(such as at the Battles of Trenton and Yorktown, or his brilliantescape after the nearly disastrous Battle of Long Island, to name afew). After the war, he tried to retire but was eventually made thePresident of the Constitutional Convention, where he ensured thatthe Constitution was drafted. He then became the first President,and guided the new nation through its formative years; he wascareful to avoid any sort of similarity to the recently oustedBritish monarchy. He then set the two terms precedent, so as tofurther avoid any potential restoration of a monarchy. He embodiedthe Enlightenment ideals of the early United States, and was aneasy choice for the honor of having the new capital named afterhim. (MORE)

The only air dribble I remember seeing was in the final game of the 1958 season between South Dakota State College (now SDSU) and the University of South Dakota. It was used to perfection by Clayton Kiewel of USD as he was dribbling down the floor with Harley Peterson of SDSC defending near the end …of the game. In the middle of his dribble Kiewel tapped the ball in the air and touched it again before it hit the ground and continued his dribble on in for a game winning lay-up. When he tapped up the "air dribble" it left the defender spinning around looking for the basketball and Kiewel continued the drive uncontested. Beautiful play even if it did beat my team. USD won the right to go to the national NAIA tournament and won it that year because of that particular play. (MORE)
It is in the city of Washington in DC, not in the state of Washington.
The air distance from Seattle, Washington, to Washington, D.C., is 2,328 miles. That equals 3,747 kilometers or 2,023 nautical miles.

Its almost like separating a city and state. D.C. stands for District of Columbia. When people were building the US capitol city they decided to not put in a certain state for personal, political and ethical reasons. So they created a small district.

DC stands for District of Columbia, signifying that the nation's capitol is not in any particular state, therefore freeing it from serving the needs of its mother-state over the needs of the nation as a whole.

Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington, "the District", or simply D.C., is the capital of the United States. On July 16, 1790, the United States Congress approved the creation of a special district to serve as the permanent national capital as perm…itted by the U.S. Constitution. The District is therefore not a part of any U.S. state and is instead directly overseen by the federal government. Washington DC is the home to many national landmarks. These include the White House, Arlington National Cemetery, and the Smithsonian Institution. Duke Ellington was one of many well known Americans that called Washington DC home. Washington D.C. is a Federal District, a single city under the control of the Federal Government (the central government of the United States), without regards to any locality. Even though the city has it's own City Council, the US Congress may overrule any decisions made by them, as Congress has sole power over the district. It is the Capital of the United States of America. (MORE)

Yes, the Crew Club does encourage the use of condoms. They give out condoms upon checking in, along with your towel and sheet (if you get a room). Condoms have also been available upstairs in a basket. In addition, safe sex posters can be found in several parts of the facility and in many of the roo…ms. Having said that however, there are MANY engaging in unprotected sex. Caution when hooking up is strongly advised. (Also, be sure to lock up your wallet, cell phone and other valuables in the lock boxes provided across from the front counter. Thieves are as common as the sexually irresponsible, unfortunately.
