From a press release:
“Stanton & Greene is taking inspiration from its location in the heart of Capitol Hill and relaunching itself as a craft cocktail bar that celebrates the history, heritage and flavors of these United States. The centerpiece of this rebranding is a new cocktail menu that consists of two historical recipes and ten original cocktails each directly inspired by a different amendment in the Bill of Rights (see guide for details) .
The two historical cocktails are Benjamin Franklin’s Clarified Milk Punch, recorded in a 1762 letter to James Bowdoin, and Martha Washington’s Cherry Bounce, a favorite of George Washington’s. A taste of these drinks is literally a sip of history. The list of original Constitutional Cocktails embraces the history of American drinking as informed by mixologist Remy Canario’s extensive background reading (see bibliography) and research at the Library of Congress, emphasizes ingredients native to North America (e.g. Concord grapes and black walnuts), and evokes flavor profiles familiar to all Americans (e.g. apple pie and peanut butter & jelly). The result is a menu that is highly accessible, but also full of novel flavor combinations and fresh ideas including: craft versions of two of the most humble of drink orders, rum & coke and vodka & red bull, the use of stickers as a medium to incorporate the scent of essential oils into a cocktail; ingredients with medicinal properties; and a 100% local cocktail.

Friends of mine have decided to skip Christmas presents this year and instead are raising money to buy a truck to donate to Standing Rock Medic & Healing center. The family will spend Christmas driving it out there to support the water protectors.”
The fundraising page says:
“We are a family of 4 living in Alexandria VA. My wife and I live in a suburban community with children in high school. This winter we plan to drive a pickup truck up to the Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council and donate it to the cause. This fundraiser will supply the funds to purchase the truck, snow tires, supplies and other things needed to complete this endeavor. (more…)
“My neighbor & I saw a dog with no collar walking down Oakwood Ter in Mt Pleasant. Medium sized, black and white. He seemed very friendly. Was missing his collar. We pet him, but then he ran across 17th up the driveway of The Village apartment complex. These streets border on the park, so maybe he slipped away during a walk on the nearby trail.
I wanted to get the info & pic out there in case anyone recognizes him. 17th is a curvy street that could be very dangerous for a loose dog.”

I received a parking ticket back in September and since I was absolutely at fault paid it without delay. I had pneumonia, but had to go to UPS at 6th and Penn SE. I pulled into the loading zone and left the car there with my flashers on since i thought I was just running in and dropping the package. Long story short, there was one person in front of me and it took 10 minutes to drop the package. I came out to a ticket, which I deserved.
Anyway, I just got my insurance renewal quote and its double what it was last year. When I inquired they told me that my ticket had been classified as a “moving violation.” I tried searching the ticket number on the DMV’s website in the “moving violations” look up on the website and it said it didn’t exist, and when I typed the ticket number into “parking violations” it confirmed the ticket was for that.
I’m basically wondering if anyone knows if I WAS guilty of a moving violation, and if not, what I can do to have that changed with the DMV since its impacting my insurance and driving record.”

Preservation for the Win Vol. 76! From The Trust for the National Mall:
“December 1, 2016 marks the groundbreaking of the relocation and restoration of the Lockeeper’s House, the oldest structure on the National Mall. For more than 180 years, the house has witnessed the history, development and commerce of our nation’s capital.
Located just inches from heavy traffic at the corner of 17th Street and Constitution Avenue NW, the house will be lifted and moved about 20 feet from the road and outfitted with an educational exhibit space welcoming visitors to Constitution Gardens and the National Mall.”

“The reimagined Constitution Gardens will retain its original purpose as a pastoral setting, but offer sustainable space for education and entertainment throughout the year, day and night. The restored space will serve as a much-needed gateway onto America’s Front Yard, orienting visitors with a welcome center and inviting spaces to relax, revive, or learn. (more…)
