1. Going to bars with news and political shows on the TV.
The most depressing moment after moving away from DC is when I went to a bar during the State of the Union and realized that not only was no one playing drinking games to it, but it wasn’t even on the TV. Instead of the President’s address to the nation, the barflies were watching sports games that they did not remotely care about. Only in DC does anything other than sports end up on bar TVs.
