Ahh, if you’re reading this post, you’re new to the DC-area.  Welcome!  While I know you’re not a tourist, you should still read some of the tips I previously offered in my tips to visiting DC here. 

The first “tip” for you new DC resident is going to be on Safeway.  We have nicknames for them.  I think of them as terms of endearment.  While I think some of the Safeways have out-grown some of the terms, they’re still being used.  

Not for Tourists has a nice recap of some of them here.
