Georgetown BID unveils map to remind you of Georgetown’s excellence

Georgetown’s Business Improvement District (BID) has never seen an opportunity to laud Georgetown that it didn’t like. With that in mind, we present to you … Georgetown BID’s map of Georgetown. [PDF]

Have you ever wondered where they filmed Dave? Or where JFK and Jackie Bouvier made their wedding plans? The BID map identifies them both—on self-guided walking tours!

In between columns of advertisements that promote Georgetown businesses, the map has nifty little guides for “discerning explorers,” which explain what to do, where to eat, where to shop, and where to stay. We assume that only the most discerning of explorers would be allowed to enter the Swedish embassy, for example. (The Swedes would never tolerate the boorish attitude of traditional American tourists.)

Surprisingly, the map does not feature a giant cupcake at the intersection of M and 33rd Streets, accompanied by the words, “WAIT IN LINE HERE, SHEEPLE.”

Maybe we’re being a bit hard on Georgetown BID. We’re sorry, BID members—we’re just upset. When our parents visit, they’ll inevitably use this map instead of listening to us.

  1. Of course Georgetown University is not a worthy enough site for any walking tours….
