Barney Frank is Massachusetts's charismatic, openly gay and reliably liberal congressman/Rush Limbaugh foil supreme. He is also one hell of a travel guide. The Boston Globe just went on a tour of Barney Frank's Washington. One of Frank's favorites? Capitol Hill's Banana Cafe and Piano Bar. Outside Banana Cafe flaunts pink walls and inside the yellow and green walls complement the ever-present mellow scents of Cuban and Puerto Rican cooking.
