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 think there was much to my “history” but after giving it a little thought, I realized that I think of the pedicab and me in the sense of Holy Matrimony, a marriage, a relationship… no actually, more so a TRUE LOVE STORY: -how we... 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 has to pay for my Gucci obsession and it sure is’t going to be mom or dad. Would it make people happier if I wasn’t doing this? Maybe if I was uglier it would be more ok in society to drive a pedicab. One time an Indian family came up to... Read More

DC PEDICAB STORY

A centuries-old form of transportation has made a resurgence in the District as DC Pedicab began peddling its service — a ride on the back of a bicycle-drawn carriage — this weekend. Bicycle pedicabs, the modern version of 18th-century carts pulled by runners, are common in Asia and Europe. But in recent years, modern pedicab companies have opened in New York, San Diego, Chicago, Green Bay, Wis., and Charleston, S.C. DC Pedicab plans to start out with six drivers — on three-wheel bikes fitted with a three-person carriage — roaming the city, biking passengers to tourist and nightlife destinations. “There is nothing like it in the D.C. market,” said co-owner Ryan Guthrie. “I think... Read More

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.

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 drink at ‘Wonderland” with some living socialites. As I paid for my drink with my new crisp hundred dollar bill, I scanned the bar for attractive lads that I would perhaps converse with about donkeys and elephants that roam our politically... 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 staring at you with those lifeless eyes, surrounded by an equally lifeless Beyonce and Johnny Depp. There’s something a little creepy about wax statues, famed robiticist Massahiro Morri called this phenomenon The Uncanny Valley, but that’s a subject... 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 Washington Monument to fall inside the monument’s observation area. Shortly after the crack appeared on the west side of the monument, a helicopter circled the monument in order to spot any other damages done to the structure. An engineering firm... Read More
