The Washington Post reported WMATA will:

“consider selling the naming rights to some stations — despite ongoing concerns about the risks of adding commercial brand names to historic Metro stops.”

Good way to raise revenue?

Before you answer just think how much coffee that would buy.

“Dear PoPville,

Got back from happy hour with a friend at Thai Chef on Connecticut Avenue in Dupont. We were pretty hungry when we first got there, so we ordered way too much sushi. At the end of the meal, we asked for a doggy bag but were refused. “Oh, we can’t during happy hour.” We were flabbergasted. Is that legal?! Has anyone heard of other restaurants doing this? My friend ended up wrapping the rest of the sushi in napkins from her purse, and we left after paying, a sour taste in our mouths.”

“Dear PoPville,

Looking for a bar (where we can guarantee a reasonable bar tab) or an event space (like a party hall where we can bring in booze/food) for a birthday party. A place that would hold up to 75 people, where we can set up a DJ/Karaoke, put up some decorations, and just have a good time. Do people have suggestions on bars or event venues that won’t break the bank in DC?”
