“I have known writers over the years, enormously talented, who are so self conscious about it, who are so terrified of writing a bad sentence, that they can’t write anything at all. I think a certain fearlessness in the face of ineptitude is a useful tool.”
At Bad Sentences, we are not afraid of our ineptitude. We endeavor to shed our self-consciousness in order to unleash our talent. Join us as we unapologetically share our best B.S. with you.
Allow us to introduce ourselves. We’re Tom and Kacy, a fun-loving married couple obsessed with our hometown of Washington DC. We’ve created this space as a way to creatively pursue our greatest passions – food, wine and travel.
Here’s a little taste of what you can expect as a Bad Sentences reader.
Food currently gets top billing here on Bad Sentences. We just can’t stay away from the DC dining scene, and food is a top priority when we travel as well. We write full restaurant reviews, foodie anecdotes and food industry news that gets us excited.
We are adventurous eaters and will try anything at least once, probably twice. Our opinions will always be honest and straight forward (though we try to offer constructive criticism as opposed to snark) and won’t recommend a place we don’t truly enjoy. We’re also generally a budget-conscious diners and often include information about value compared to quality at restaurants we visit. As much as we love a luxurious dinner, we truly believe a meal does not have to max out your credit card in order to be delicious.
We encourage food discussion on Bad Sentences and love it when readers chime in with supporting or differing takes on our reviews. We’re also always happy to make a restaurant recommendation for locals and tourists alike – just shoot us an email.
Kacy was born in a very small town in Oklahoma, but has always been drawn to see the rest of the world. By contrast, Tom lived in several big cities around the U.S. growing up (and, fun fact, he was born in England) and still loves to see and explore new corners of the world. Whether it be an international sojourn or a day trip to a new town nearby, we spend countless hours daydreaming about past trips and planning future ones.
We write about our favorite wineries, wine experiences and other fun tidbits. We’ve found that wine makes for lots of good tidbits.
We hope you’ll follow along as we continue to share our food-filled, wine-soaked adventures with our B.S. tribe.
