Question by vin v: Which bugdet hotels near to washington dc atttractions? How do i visit white house ? any idea thank you?

Budget Hotels in Washington are relative. A cheap hotel in a good area of Washington DC will start at $ 100 a night. Outside of the city you might get a little less expensive but not much less than $ 75 or $ 80, and you will face a long commute and extra costs to get into the city.

The ones I recommend most often are

The Hotel Harrington – this is within walking distance of everything, a block off Pennsylvania Avenue, about 3 blocks from the white House, 12 from the Capitol, 3 from the National Museum of Natural History. It’s a budget hotel, with rooms starting just under $ 100 a night, and is clean and comfortable, but hardly luxurious. It would be my first choice.

The Red Roof Inn Chinatown. This is a little further from the mall (about 6-7 blocks) near the National Gallery of Art and about 8 blocks from the Capitol and the White House. It’s more expensive, starting around $ 120 a night, but it’s a more “standard” hotel.

All other major hotel brands are in DC. I recommend avoiding the ones on New York Avenue, they are in a bad neighborhood, without a metro station nearby, and usually pretty rundown.

To visit the White House you must request a tour from your Congressperson or Representative. Look them up on the internet and their official web site will have information on how to do this (it varies by member of congress), usually either under “tours” or “Constituent Services.”

For touring advice, I suggest visiting in five major areas. They are

1. Monuments and Memorials – these help make DC Unique. You can visit the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, World War II Memorial, Korean War Memorial and Vietnam Memorial on the mall, and the Jefferson memorial and FDR Memorial on the Tidal Basin, but there are memorials and monuments all over Washington. These should be a part of your visit.

2. The government buildings. In addition to the White House (which you can only see on a tour arranged by your member of congress) there is the Supreme Court (open M-F) the Capitol Building (M-Saturday), the Library of Congress, the National Archives, the U.S. Botanical Gardens, and the Bureau of Engraving and printing. Spend some time looking at how US government operates.

3. The museums. 16 different Smithsonian buildings, 14 of them in DC, the National Gallery of Art, the National Holocaust Memoral are all free and well worth visiting. Others, like the Newseum, Madame Tussauds, the Spy Museum, the Corcoran, the Phillips Collection – have a fee, but are worth it. I don’t know a city more museum rich than ours.

4. Visit a neighborhood. DC is much more than the museums and the government,; it’s a living vital city with some fantastic neighborhoods. Visit Shaw, where African American culture is paramount, Adams Morgan where diversity is the key, and Chinatown where earlier waves of immigrants made their mark. Foggy bottom is a great international district, the SW Waterfront has it’s own allure.

5. Check out culture, Free performances in the Kennedy Center, Military Band Concerts year round, World class theatre including the Shakespeare Theatre, the Arena Stage, Source, Signature, Wooley Mammoth and many more professional theatre companies are here, plus the National Orchestra, the Washington Ballet and a half dozen top rate choral groups!

In addition to all this, there are lively neighborhoods, great clubs, a fantastic music scene, with everything from bluegrass to classical to go-go and hip-hop, incredible gardens, and much, much more! Check out our podcast for more ideas.

Are there any successful agencies near maryland or in maryland that have had famous actors or models?

December 5th, 2013

Question by Karla: Are there any successful agencies near maryland or in maryland that have had famous actors or models?
I live in maryland and i’m 16, almost 17. I convinced my parents into giving me a chance in acting or modeling. I feel i have the ability to become either or even both, but i don’t want it to be a scam and was hoping to have a good agency so i can actually have the chance to be famous although i just live in maryland and i don’t know anyone that’s really famous from here. so i was hoping there was a real and successful agency like in washington, maryland, or virginia!

Best answer:

Answer by Katrina E.
The best way to get an agent is through networking so talk to your acting teachers/coaches and directors you’ve worked with and other actors too. See if anyone is willing to refer you to a talent agent. You can’t just go out and hire an agent. If you want to try blind submissions, you can find lists of some legitimate agents at the SAG-AFTRA website or at backstage.com:

http://www.backstage.com/resources/search/agent/
http://www.sagaftra.org/agency-relations/sag-franchised-agents
http://www.sagaftra.org/agency-relations/aftra-franchised-agents

Some tips for checking out agencies:

Legitimate talent agents are paid on commission – they get a percentage of what their clients make. Legitimate agents don’t ask for payment up front. And it’s extremely rare for a legitimate agent to approach an actor first.

Look at their website – does it say they are a talent agency or do they talk about talent management, acting workshops, or other services they offer to help a career? Legitimate talent agents don’t offer other services or package deals or the like. They make their money by finding their clients auditions not by charging fees or providing other services.

Do internet searches with the company name and “scam” or ‘ripoff” and see what comes up. Now even legitimate companies will have complaints – the question is how many and what kind.

Check their listing at the Better Business Bureau

Do an internet search for news articles, photos and the like and see how well know/publicized they are in the industry.

Check the International Movie Database (IMDb). You’ll need the Pro version though (or use the 2 week free trial). IMDb is a database of movies and television shows, and every human involved in them. It is not 100% accurate, but it can give a big picture view. If someone is not on IMDb at all, they are probably not going to advance your career much. And with the Pro version you can see an agents/agency’s client list (or at least those with TV/film roles since IMDb doesn’t list commercials or theater work). See who is really using the agency.

Talk to acting teachers/coaches, directors and other actors and find out what reputation the agency has in the industry.

What are some attractions near Radio City Music Hall?

September 13th, 2012

Question by me me: What are some attractions near Radio City Music Hall?
My 17 year old daughter & her boyfriend are going on a day trip with a group to NYC tomorrow morning. It’s not a tour or anything. Once they get off the bus they are free to do whatever until they have to meet the bus to get back home. I was wondering what attractions are near Radio City Music hall since this is the drop off and pick up location. Maybe something that young people would enjoy doing. Also some local spots to eat that isn’t overly expensive considering they are just kids with not a ton of money. Any suggestions are welcome.

Best answer:

Answer by Native New Yorker
St. Patrick’s Cathedral
Times Square
MoMa
Shops on Fifth Avenue
M&M Store
Hershey Store

to name a few.

Good luck

Halloween at Beamish near Washington

May 28th, 2012
Hotel in Washington
by jhf

The events take place on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th October 2011 and gets bigger and better each year. So what can you expect? To be terrified out of your wits of course! You’ll meet ghosts and ghouls up close but be massively entertained.

In town, the streets will be teeming with scary creatures who will try to catch you unawares as you make your way past the shops and houses. Be sure to stop and visit the Dentist for a truly haunting treatment, you will be filled with horror not fillings! At the Masonic Hall you can try to mummify a family member, but be sure to seek their permission first. This will be something to tell your colleagues at work afterwards. Then you must summon the courage to visit the graveyard, I don’t think you will need any description of what will happen here suffice to mention zombies! The rest I leave up to your imagination.

Next, if you are not too scared, you can make your way to the Pit Village where the Chapel will draw you in with haunting music… but played by whom? Here there will be the chance to try the traditional “dooking” for apples, great fun for all from the youngster who does not care less about diving their head under the water to granddad trying to hold on to his dignity and his false teeth. Then try your hand at Splat the Rat which always looks easier than it actually is. A visit to the school will release your creative side, there will be lots of opportunities to make things and try things out. All the youngsters in your party will jump at the opportunity to try ‘trick or treating’ with a difference at the pit cottages after they have had their faces appropriately painted. The ice rink is also good fun; where have you ever come across a haunted skating rink?

Finally tired and terrified, with a comforting mug of pumpkin soup in hand, you can sit and listen to some ghostly tales, told by a professional story teller.

What a fantastic experience, and what better than to seek out the delights of the region the next day? Whether shopping or visiting attractions is your cup of tea, you will be well satisfied.
