I used to get the best haircuts from Billy at Parlour Salon on U Street. He is the only hairdresser who made my hair look good curly, straight, and even as it grew out. At some point while I was away from DC for grad school in 2015-2017, he left Parlour. I haven’t been able to find him, and I haven’t gotten an equally good haircut in years. Can the DC hivemind help? Anyone from the readership know where he is working?”
From the Mayor’s Office:
“Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives voted 216-208 to pass the Washington, D.C. Admission Act (H.R. 51):
“Today, for the second time in two years, the U.S. House of Representatives has voted in favor of making Washington, DC the 51st state.
“This vote comes at a critical time when Americans nationwide are eager to deliver on the promise of liberty and justice for all. For centuries, an incremental approach to equality in America has delayed this promise for too many. Now is the time for bold action.
“We know well the grave injustices our nation was built on. We also know that progress has been made time and time again because elected leaders and everyday citizens had the courage and vision to demand a more inclusive democracy. Read More

Teagan asked: “hoping someone can help! And please tell me if I’m too early to this, but I am looking for a change of scenery to work for a few hours. Are there any coffee shops / cafes that are allowing *masked* patrons to sit inside with their laptop?”

Adams Morgan Inn Says Good-Bye after 38 Years — by Adam Crain, owner, Adams Inn B&B
“After 38 years, the 27-room Adams Inn on Lanier Place in Washington DC is now closed, another victim of the Covid pandemic. Founded in 1983, Adams Inn’s namesake was its Adams Morgan neighborhood. There were two previous owners before I became owner in 2001. It is sheer coincidence that I share the same name as the Inn.
Adams Inn prided itself on affordability, always offering several rooms for under $90/night. With an average room rate of $128/night, breakfast included, the Inn was flooded with budget-conscious travelers. Our 86% annual occupancy rate was one of the city’s highest year after year. Many guests were repeat visitors, and many stayed for weeks at a time.
The Inn offered an intimacy rarely seen at larger hotels. With a small staff and low turnover, I got to know my staff; and they in-turn got to know our guests. My staff’s work ethic never ceased to amaze me; sick days were a rarity, and the work was fast paced. Most employees lived, at best, paycheck to paycheck, some hovering just beyond poverty. All were consumed with providing for their families, and as a result they yearned for work. I cannot imagine a group of harder working people. Yet because Covid devastated the hospitality industry, many will likely be left behind even as the economy recovers. Read More
