About the author (2009)

\Eve Zibart, AUTHOR OF SEVERAL BOOKS, INCLUDING The Unofficial Guide to New Orleans, The Unofficial Guide to New York, The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World for Grown-ups, and The Ethnic Food Lover’s Companion, spent many years as a feature writer and restaurant critic for the Washington Post and now contributes to Washingtonian and other magazines. As the Post’s former nightlife columnist, she drew on her intimate knowledge of D.C.’s diverse afterhours scene as well as the area’s vast array of dining spots when writing the entertainment and restaurant sections for this guide. Eve also scoped out where to find the best deals for our chapter on shopping and gently reminded Joe that biking is only one form of exercise.
