Umm – umm. Ahhh. Let me see here. Hmmmm. Uhhhh. Let me just share (pun absolutely not intended) the details…

From a press release:

“The Georgetown Business Improvement District is pleased to announce Georgetown ParasolShare, a courtesy program aimed at improving the visitor experience and inviting customers to “Shop Georgetown and Stay Cool,” beginning June 17. The program, the first of its kind, embraces the ever-growing sharing economy and welcomes visitors to use and ‘share’ a custom-branded nylon parasol as they shop, then return it to a participating location as they leave Georgetown. Close to 50 participating stores, restaurants, galleries and hotels across the commercial district from M Street to Wisconsin Avenue, side streets, and along K Street, are participating.

“There’s no doubt about it: in Georgetown, we love our shoppers,” said Joe Sternlieb, Georgetown BID CEO. “By coupling the ParasolShare program with other shopper amenities such as the M Street weekend sidewalk widenings and free weekend Circulator rides, we hope the visitor experience will be as comfortable as possible. This has been a really fun and creative idea for our organization to develop and to bring our community of both local, homegrown merchants and national retailers together. If it’s embraced by the public, we’d love to bring it back next season.” (more…)

Eight more locations are slated to open in the next 36 months and will feature the delicious pizza, sandwiches, salads, appetizers and more that make up the signature Paisano’s taste. (more…)


Been a minute since I had the opportunity to nominate another unsung hero. Can’t say I’ve seen someone take this shortcut before. Not sure the photos do it justice but that hill is really steep. This connects Rock Creek Parkway to Georgetown.

Ed. Note: I don’t literally think these folks are heroes along the lines of firefighters and emergency responders, apologies if that was not clear. You can see previous nominees here. Should you spot a quiet act of heroism along these lines please do send an email with a brief description and the neighborhood where it was witnessed to [email protected]
