  • I’m guessing an argument over table space at the market escalated. It can get pretty vicious over there.

    • lolz but also people are so rude. Saturday there was no seating and one group had no joke 5 tables pushed together and had finished eating maybe an hour before. The whole time we were there they just sat without any care that people who had bought food were deseperately searching for seats. They were a little more rude than the 4 top with 3 people who i asked if I could have their 4th seat. They said no, proceeded to sit there for 20 more mins with the extra chair, then left. UGHHH

  • 5 shooting posts in a row. The gun situation in DC does not appear to be under control.
