Cafe Wha? (bar/music) Jul 14, 2009
I used to go here a lot, spending my poor student's budget because I thought it was cool. Then I realised there are cheaper (and better) places for drinks, food, sans cover, group fees, and all those silly little fees they tick on.

Not to completely knock the place, it's lively, and there's no reason to not enjoy spending time in here. They have a house band that covers some good old classics, and all the "legends" have played here. You go here once to say you've been where Jimi Hendrix was basically.

It's really a touristy hotspot now, like a slightly cooler Hard Rock Cafe. That said, sometimes they have good acts who play here.

Note: It's in a basement and a bit cramped like most places in this area which has high rents.

I most certainly did not forget the "t." Showing your lack of "hipitis" for not knowing of the place, are we? ;) (My head is getting big from the features :D)

FYI, check out for slang words, hilarious.

Ehh Moon Unit as a name? Poor weans.

Did you forget the 't' before the question mark ? :-d

Always remember seeing a Washington Post competition for new words ( think they do it ever year,or they used to. One of them I remember was

Hipititis - terminal coolness

Seemed appropriate if Frank Zappa was playing it 30 years ago :-). Anyone that can call their kids Moon Unit and Dweezil has to have an air of coolness about them :-D
