georgetown restaurant for college kids
if you want more of a bar type place, definitely try Breadsoda on Wisonsin in Glover Park; just a couple of minutes from downtown Georgetown. Great outdoor seating area, billiards, Wii, shuffleboard, darts, and awesome music.
I'd also try Bourbon, Town Hall and possibly Kitchen in Glover Park as well. Both have amazing food, good atmopshere and great drinks as well.
As for Georgetown proper: Los Cuates; fairly new, great ex and mex and super strong Margaritas, Old Glory: better for wings and outdoor seating on their upper deck; and possible J Pauls, for nothing else than decent bar, pretzel bread, and great people watching by the windows

re: dining with doc
I'm not a fan of Mie n Yu, while the decor is pretty festive, that's about all there is to recommend the place. I thought the food was way overpriced and not well-prepared (our bulgogi was dry and flavorless).
I recently ate at Neyla off Wisconsin and was impressed- it was good for groups, festive decor and had a wide range of options (from small plates to entrees, so easier to do cheaply, especially if you stick to a lot of dips).
