City Paper

While I was in DC, I picked up a City Paper. I didn't get the chance to read it until getting back home, though. It's the same format, same idea as Pittsburgh's City Paper, but with significant differences.

First off, it's a thicker paper. No surprise as Washington is a bigger
city, it's city paper would list a lot more things to do and thus need about twice as many pages to present it.

And while the content is pretty much the same sorts of things across the board, I was not expecting the vibrator advertisement on page 19. All of the adult ads in the Pittsburgh version have a lot of suggestion but this add had the product clearly presented for exactly what it was.

I'm pretty sure that wouldn't fly here in Pittsburgh.
