We round up the stories, blog posts, tweets and going-out scuttlebutt that have us talking.
Last week’s weirdest news had to be that more Washingtonians report getting it on than residents of other cities in Trojan’s annual U.S. Sex Census. The key word here, of course, is “report” — the study consisted of two online surveys that in all polled 3,000 people nationwide. And no one would ever lie about sex, right? Certainly not in Washington.
Here’s how the survey broke down: Los Angeles took home the prize for sexual frequency; but D.C. had the most people — 75 percent — who reported being active in the past year (and apparently, according to the study, Saturday is the day we like to schedule it in, probably after coffee, the morning paper and spin class).

Last Tuesday was DC Flag Tattoo Day, and maybe it was the weather, but it seemed like the Dupont Circle gathering didn’t attract a lot of people who actually have the District’s beloved flag etched into their dermis (and there are a lot). DCist did manage to catch Eleanor Holmes Norton at the event, albeit with a temporary tat. [DCist]
Washingtonian has a gorgeous peek at the new Virtue Feed & Grain , an Irish-American themed restaurant from Restaurant Eve and the Majestic’s Cathal and Meshelle Armstrong and their partner, mixologist Todd Thrasher. The Old Town resto is trying hard to be something of an extension of home, from the comfort food (fried chicken, deviled eggs) to the pajama brunches, to the copious couches for lounging and scarfing down pigs in a blanket. But I’m pretty sure the waiters would mind if we ate lying down. [Washingtonian]
And finally, if you have lived here more than, say, five years, you may remember popular Clarendon dive Dr. Dremo’s, and maybe you even cried a few tears when it was razed a few years ago for a condo project. Washington Business Journal reports that the hunt continues for a new location for the massive bar — which was as campy as a bar could be, what with the Night of 101 Elvises, and the locally brewed Chocolate Donut Stout. The owner sent out an e-mail to the old Dremo’s mailing list noting that he’s looking for investors to pony up $350,000. [Washington Business Journal]
