Ruthie’s All Day, Arlington, Virginia

The Washington area used to be a barbecue desert. Oh, how things are changing! On a Sunday afternoon, Nancy and I found another winner — Ruthie’s All Day, an honest True ‘Cue place with really good food. Ruthie’s was still almost full when Nancy and I stopped in about 1:30. You know, I need to stop going to Arlington for barbecue on Sundays. Sunday is … Continue reading Ruthie’s All Day, Arlington, Virginia

Deep Lagoon Seafood and Oyster House (1), Marco Island, Florida

I spent much of my career litigating unfair redistricting plans, and I hope you’ll consider urging your representatives and senators — those of you who live outside the … Continue reading The John Tanner Fairness in Redistricting Act

Rumba Cafe, Naples, Florida

Something has changed at the Rumba Cafe. Nancy and I always eat at the Rumba Cafe when we go to Marco Island. (Search “rumba” for [previous reviews.) It’s on the way from the airport — the Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers — to Marco Island, and it’s usually our first meal in Florida. It has the best Cuban food in southwestern Florida — … Continue reading Rumba Cafe, Naples, Florida
