Thanks to Ethan for sending Saturday: “Signage from Bobby’s Burger Bar on K street being removed”
Bobby’s Burger Palace opened on K Street in August 2011.

back never left.
I work at a office on 22nd and K and for the past month or so I have noticed a elderly gentleman asking for “change for a $20″. Obviously noting it was a scam because of the frequency I see him/hear him ask. I still see so many folks lose $19 dollars to this man daily.”
This rental is located at 2201 L Street, NW. The Craigslist ad says:
