During the lunch Susan said, “I’m really sorry I asked you to keep your mouth shut. I’m just proud of you.” She went on to tell the story about her marriage. She said that when Michael and she went to get married, Mikie was already 16 months old. The priest she talked to refused to marry them, saying that she was making a mockery of his church.

McFadden’s Restaurant – Real World DC

In Episode 7 Mike and Eric (described onscreen in Episode 7 as Mike’s “friend”) as well as at least Emily, Callie, Erika and Ty went to McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon. While there Mike paid attention to some women. Eric was definitely bothered by it, and he said that Mike was doing it for attention. Although I think it is fair to say that people who participate in Real World as houseguests are, on average, likely to do more than pay attention to women in order to get attention. In any event Erika told Eric that she believes Mike is gay.

In Episode 6 Callie received a photography assignment for the Washington Blade to take pictures at Halo. Callie went to the bar accompanied by Mike and Erika and took pictures.

By the time of this entry, Halo is gone. It has been replaced by MOVA. In the picture above you can see a stainless steel rectangular box just above the mail slot. When Episode 6 of the Real World DC was shot, that was the sign for Halo. Also the name Halo still appears on the glass door to the right of the mail slot, although the image above is too small to be able to read it.

In Episode 7 Erika is accompanied by all the other houseguests (Andrew, Ashley, Callie, Emily, Josh, Mike and Ty) as she heads to Georgetown to do some shopping. But as often happens on Real World DC, things don’t go as smoothly as they might.

Most of the houseguests want to stop for lunch at Garrett’s Railroad Tavern before any shopping actually gets done. Erika said, “Well I came here to go shopping. I didn’t come here to sit in a restaurant.” Whether she stayed at the restaurant, I don’t know, but at least the other houseguests did.

In Episode 5 of Real World DC all eight houseguests, Andrew, Ashley, Callie, Emily, Erika, Josh, Mike and Ty went rock climbing at Earth Treks. Earth Treks is an indoor climbing gym.

Earth Treks Door

Earth Treks Door

This place is about 13 miles from the Real World DC house, and this location is by far the greatest distance the houseguest have gone from the house through this episode.

This place is a little hard to track down. Although it has an address on Rockville Pike in Rockville, Maryland, it is in the back of a giant furniture warehouse, and it doesn’t face Rockville Pike. It faces the back parking lot. People walking or driving along Rockville Pike wouldn’t be likely to know that it was there.

Earth Treks is located at 725 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD. Click Here for Google Map showing the location of the indoor climbing gym.

Closest Metro Station: The Rockville Metro Station on the Red Line is the nearest to Earth Treks. Although this is a suburban location as opposed to the more urban locations for most the Real World DC houseguest activities, it isn’t too far from the Metro Station, probably only about half a mile. But the Metro Station and Earth Treks are on opposite sides of the very busy Rockville Pike.
