    Hey guys, popping my posting cherry!
    Anyways, so I live in NC thanks to the Army, but am going to get out next July and am looking to move to DC. I go to NOVA a lot to visit family, but rarely get into the city and almost never see the night life or DuPont area.
    I plan on coming up there every 4-6 weeks until I get out of the Army and would like to spend some time in the gay-friendly bars and part of town. Any advice on where to go? Also, what is the job market looking like up there? I've heard a lot of things are on hold until after the elections and this whole sequestration bs.
    Thanks for reading guys and hope to hear from you soon..

    DC/NoVa area is doing quite well economically. Thanks mostly to government related jobs/services. There are plenty of jobs for prior military, and/or people with active security clearance. I would suggest keeping your eyes open for any sort of job fairs that are coming up.

    The main gay clubs are Town and Cobalt. Not too familiar with the popular gay bars. Probably several in the Logan/Dupont Circle area.

    DC is doing well job wise (compared to the rest of the country anyway) because of the Feds and contractors. Very competitive though, but it's a huge bonus to be military and looking for jobs there.

    You're supposed to use red text when you do that.

    Most things are practically "on hold" in DC metro until after the election. That being said, the DC metro (which includes the very affluent Northern Virginia area) has always done well economically vis-a-vis other locations because of the federal goverment and the very high concentration of brilliant, ambitious professionals in the area. If you can make it in DC metro, you can make it anywhere.
