I was talking to a friend about comics and got onto the subject of Poison Ivy, and recalled this really disturbing page with Ivy casually talking to a man her giant pitcher plant is slowly dissolving. It's just horrifying, and it was a link in someone's comment. I've tried using the search here and Google, and I guess I'm not hitting the right keywords. Does the comment ring a bell for anyone? Thanks!

I am thinking Dr. Dremos, Busboys and Poets, or perhaps somewhere in downtown DC. Let me know if anyone's available in February and we'll make something good happen. First round is on me, by the way.

Hey, MeFiDC Culture Geeks! There's free classical music
at the National Gallery of Art on Sundays. I propose an evening of Martinu, Beethoven, and Schubert on October 9th, possibly followed by a quick jaunt to Chinatown for dimsum and discourse. Those in favor, be at the fountain statue of Mercury at 6:30pm. If this turns the spinning gems over our heads green, perhaps it could be made a regular thing.
