Perched on the border of the Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle neighborhoods, Eric Hirshfield's 18th & U Duplex Diner has long served as a lively and casual gathering spot for D.C.'s gay movers and shakers. You might well call it the Gay Palm. The dining room is as social as the bar, with much table hopping and hobnobbing. The food is classic American comfort -- a generous meatloaf, a spectacular twist on the mac and cheese, and unbeatable pork chops -- all adding to the at-home-with-friends feel. The restaurant is celebrating its 12th anniversary tonight at 10 p.m. Located at 2004 18th Street NW. Call 202-265-9599 or visit duplexdiner.com
