“After the past few months on a serious deadline at work that finished up yesterday, I decided to venture out to my usual lunch spot in Farragut Square and was welcomed back by the sounds of some John Coltrane and Keith Jarrett playing on a series of small speakers and an iPod set atop the electrical closet. It made a gorgeous day even more so, and I’d like to express some appreciation to this gentleman for taking the time to make the many park lunch-goers’ time away from the office just that much better. You sir, are my hero.”

“There is some neat new signage up at 1129 20th St. NW for The Green Bee Cafe. I did a quick google search and found out that it is being opened by the folks from Bread and Brew. This was previously the site of Newton’s Noodles.”

You can see The Green Bee Cafe’s facebook page here. Updates as they get closer to opening.
