The Islander still open on U Street!

1201 U Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

On my way to work this morning, I noticed the sign was removed with a “for lease” banner put up. Also, the last couple of nights, it has been closed. What’s odd is the tables are still set up…”

I stopped by The Islander when I first noticed the sign was gone a few months ago and was told the sign simply broke. The for lease sign was for the upstairs space. For a second I was nervous because their telephone number was disconnected. But I stopped by today and they were indeed still open!

Their website says:

“The Islander is a family-owned and operated business with ” The Queen,” Chef Addie Green ruling this island kingdom. We believe she’s undoubtedly the best Caribbean cook in Washington, DC. The Islander is a landmark in the Caribbean Community and the Green family has collectively provided the finest in Trinidadian cuisine to the Washington Community for the past 40 years.

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
