“I was just so impressed with this table at Le Diplomate and hope their generous spirit is something others emulate.”

“Dear PoPville,

My friend had just broke up with her boyfriend of 4+ years, on top of a pandemic, on top of it being Father’s Day – and she lost her dad in her 20s very unexpectedly.

It’s not the most stable weekend to return to society. But we went out, and not surprisingly at Le Diplomat she needed to step outside while I cancelled our order and closed our drink bill. I ushered my friend outside and told her I would take care of the logistics. When things were settled and I called her she was not at the corner and I began to circle the restaurant. At the end of the units on 14th street I came across a lovely table who had taken my distraught and drunk friend in and were giving her water and bread and genuine understanding.

I showed up apologizing all over myself for her and they were all very sweet and empathetic and human. They recognized my friend wasn’t at her best in that moment but that doesn’t mean she isn’t a smart, Vivacious, accomplished professional badass woman who just wasn’t at her best. I would love to think that more people in DC could emulate their grace and just acknowledge that people have shitty / sloppy days because life has sucked for the last year. But they deserve help and kindness and non judgement.

I was just so impressed with this table at Le Diplomate and hope their generous spirit is something others emulate.”
