Winging it in Washington with the W Hotel Washington DC

in Mancation Blog by James Hills
Washington DC is a special town - it's where I grew up and later after I returned, it's where I met my wife. The city has no shortage of awesome hotels, expensive hotels, cheap hotels, and hotels that are just "good enough". One thing though that I always love is checking into a W Hotel. They aren't always the biggest rooms or the fanciest rooms but Starwood Hotels has always done something…

in Mancation Blog by James Hills
Beer is good - beer is delicious when shared with friends but beer really shouldn't be pretentious.

Pulsar Watches invited me to check out one of their latest watches and so I decided to give it a shot and see what it was like to wear a watch again.
