Living in Northern Virginia, traffic becomes the vehicle through which you see the world. How far are you willing to drive for dinner? Will you slug along Route 66 for mussels? Will you pay the toll to buzz around the Beltway for steak tartare? Will you drive so far for broccoli that you lose cell phone service? I’ve done it all this year and where I’m willing to drive (or take the sleek Silver line), I hope you will too.

Transit is your friend. This is your guide.
