The following cartoon was drawn by Charles and was inspired by the famous Checkpoint Charlie in the former East Germany. And for the prize – on Saturday, September 5:

“The First Annual Old Ebbitt Grill Block Party will feature mouth-watering, socializing fare including burgers, lump crab cake sandwiches, beef brisket, shrimp cocktails, brats and more along with thirst-quenching beverages such as beer, wine and frozen cocktails.
