Star Wars, Lego, Cuff Links…

Posted by scottstead on Feb 24, 2010 in Art, DIY

…go together like Inky, Blinky and Pinky (oh yeah, and Clyde) or so I found out this weekend at Eastern Market on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Local artist Yang Ku has a variety of geeky accessories available from Scrabble jewelry for those gung-ho for the grammatical to Thundercats and Voltron cuff links for the 80′s nostalgia collector. The items that caught my eye, however, were these Star Wars Lego cuff links. From Darth Vader to young Anakin these cuff links are perfect for any collector. Yang Ku currently resides in Baltimore, MD but makes the trip for the open air farmer’s market most weekends, weather allowing. You can check out the rest of her works on the web at Yang Ku Designs. In the mean time, feast your eyes on these…

Sharkey’s Skittlebrau: A DC Original

Posted by scottstead on Jul 27, 2008 in Life, Vlog
Sharkey runs the bar in the basement of the 18th Ammendment on Pennsylvania on Capitol Hill. It’s truly his domain. So much so – that it’s been dubbed “Sharkey’s Playhouse”. Sharkey does a lot of weird things – from making bacon infused Vodka drinks resembling a BLT to dropping skittles into a perfectly good Budweiser. If anyone out there is an avid Simpson’s fan you’ll understand the Skittlebrau reference. For those that don’t I’ll leave it for you to look up. Thanks Sharkey – it was a sweet treat. Very kool-aid like. Oooooh yeah! After all it is sugar and water…err I mean Budweiser…same difference.
