Show synopsis Not for Tourists Guide to Washington DC 2010, half anti-guidebook, half urban manual, is the ultimate little black book. It reveals everything from where to find the most impressive monuments, parks and universities to the best bowling lanes and yoga classes, or simply the best place to eat on a Friday night and meet friends for cocktails. Whether you've called Washington DC your home for decades or just arrived last night, you ignore at your peril this new 2010 edition with its caustic neighbourhood summaries and refreshing, politically incorrect descriptions. Meticulously researched and written by folks who actually live there, NFT presents the city along with its good, its bad and its downright hideous. In over 300 pages of glorious content, the pocket-sized survival handbook features simply everywhere, from Downtown and Greater District to Maryland and NoVA South, also covering the city's colleges, universities and sports grounds. Designed for street-savvy locals, commuters, business travellers, and yes, tourists, NFT Washington DC includes a highly graphical map for every neighbourhood (and college campus) featured. User-friendly map icons highlight everything from coffee shops, supermarkets, landmarks, liquor stores, banks and libraries, to hardware stores, gas stations, gyms and pharmacies. So if you're meeting friends in an unfamiliar part of the city or find yourself off the beaten track, NFT is a must-have resource. But NFT doesn't waste your time by serving up five zillion options just because they're in a database: contributors have gone back to eat, drink, dance and shop their way through last year's listings to check that they're still worth knowing.
