“@PoPville yo, what’s flying around K and 6th NW right now? Looks like maybe a camera attached to that bubble.”

From an email:

“Our Baked&Wired unnamed project opened its doors today [Monday] at 440 K St NW. Same quality baked goods and espresso as Baked&Wired, but fresh bread made right in our open kitchen, booze, and more space to hang out. We’ve paired the right breads with the right ingredients to make some bomb sandwiches.”
