Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen
September 29, 2018 at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
$75 to $125
This pair of ACs—the CNN anchor and the host of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live—have turned their friendship into a banter-packed two-man show ($75 to $125). We asked Cooper about some of his local haunts.
What did you and Andy do the last time you were in town?
We went to [the LGBTQ bars] Number Nine and Trade. When you walk in with Andy, it’s just a lot, so I usually bow out pretty quickly. Yeah, I’m not very fun. He’s more fun.
So what do you like to do here?
I work out—Vida Metropole, usually, or Vida U Street, and then there’s Equinox on 22nd Street. I used to work out at the YMCA near Dupont Circle [in the ’90s]. I actually met Andrew Sullivan there. I had no idea who he was, but we struck up a friendship that remains to this day. We met at the gym at the Y, which sounds very gay. I mean, I guess it was very gay, but . . . .
Where do you eat in DC?
There’s a bar at the Georgetown Ritz-Carlton that I love because nobody seems to know about it. They have really good tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches late at night. In a hotel, I sometimes order off the children’s menu because I like simple peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches and spaghetti Bolognese. I have the palate of a five-year-old. I eat the same thing every day for months at a time. It’s a way to have order in an otherwise orderless universe.
