WASHINGTON POST DID A STORY ON SHAADY

Read the Washinton Post Article here to check out the full story! So over the summer, more so at the beginning, the Washington Post called my office and asked me if it would be ok to do a story on Destination DC Tours. I was thinking…. oh wow…sweet. We had one interview at the beginning of the summer, and then another interview on the mall…. and boom its out now. I am hoping my parents are proud. YAY I must say that during the interview... Read More

TOP FIVE BIKE PATHS IN DC/METROPOLITAN AREA

5. Rock Creek Trail— 20 miles I’d say—this one is especially my pic on the weekends because the DC area becomes closed off to cars, and its just you and the road baby! I like to start this one off in Maryland and end in DC. It is more of an uphill slant I’d say… and you pass the Zoo (check out the pandas) and the ZOO LIGHYS in the winter! 4. Custis Trail—4 miles—A nice trail from Shreve Road where the Long... Read More

DISCOVER DC’s “HISTORY”- a TRUE LOVE STORY—DISCOVERED ON MY BIRTHDAY

Tonight, when I was coming back from birthday celebrations, my birthday bird’s eye view perspective stumbled across the word “History” for Yelp. As the “Business Owner” I had to “Claim my Business” and fill out my “HISTORY” for Discover DC TOURS. History? Well this is not some old lemonade stand company that turned into Mac Donalds in 1892…so I can’t top that. At first, I didn’t... Read More

Too Pretty to Pedicab?

   Whether you like to say it out loud or not, there is a definite pedicab stigma. People are constantly coming up to us girl pedicabbers and saying “You are way too beautiful to be doing that!”…and it bothers me. Ok. So since I’m pretty what should I be doing? Should I be a prostitute? A super model? A pretty Persian girl on Shahs of Sunset that chills and does nothing but uses daddy’s credit cards for Fendi, Prada, and Gucci? Well somebody... Read More

PEDICAB SONG BY SHAADY-THE SLY SWIFT FLYING SQUIRREL THAT I AM

As a pedicabber and a lover of Washington DC, I must admit that I am obsessed with pedicabbing. This is the reason why I started this company. Since I love pedicabbing so much, I free-styled this song about pedicabbing and recorded it on my i-phone…. listen to it… It is… one part ridiculous, three parts passionate, two part facts, and one part fib. Most pedicabbers would appreciate this song… let me know what you think… pedicab... Read More

COUNT.HER.FIB.MONEY

Tonight I engaged two young U street urbanites in a tour of the lovely Lincoln Theater and Ben’s Chili Bowl. Thanking me with soulful “OOOOs”, “AAAAs”, and “dayam girl you strong like Her Cule Lease”…they paid me with a hundred dollar bill which included a chunky tip to my surprise. I gave these generous lads sixty dollars in change and deservedly decided to indulge my thirsty turtles in a delightful... Read More

TOP FIVE PLACES I WISH I WENT TO MORE by Jimmy

Top 5 Places I Rarely Go To But I Wish I Did More Often. We all have this list., we all have places we like to visit in our hometowns but rarely do. Here are mine. 5. Madame Tussauds’ Wax Museum I think there’s a certain creepy charm to Wax Museums, and Madame Tuddauds Wax Museum is no different. You might recognize the name from the red double-decker busses that have become ubiquitous on the National Mall area, with a lifeless wax Barack Obama... Read More

THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT POST EARTHQUAKE

Washington Monument still stands tall behind a fellow pedicaber The Washington Monument After our Earth Quake August 23, 2011 Today, during the earthquake, a couple who I spoke with were at the top of the Washington Monument! “We thought we were under attack! Thank the lord we weren’t in the elevator! We were advised to walk down the 896 stairs and boy did that take a long time!” Today at 1:51, the earthquake caused some of the caulking in the... Read More
