“By far the best breakfast sandwich in DC. Not even close. I can’t get over how good these are. Wam homemade pastrami, a farm fresh egg perfectly cooked, a nice slice of cheese, on a lightly toasted and buttered roll with a pinch of salt. It may take five or ten minutes but 100% worth the wait. #pastrami #egg #cheese”

In response to a large police presence in Mount Pleasant Friday night, MPD responded:

“an MPD unit assigned to the area observed two rival gangs at the location. One of the gang members was surrounded by several members of the rival gang and the officer, believing that a fight was about to take place, requested additional units to respond to the location. No fight ever took place and the gang members were identified and sent on their way. No arrests were made during the incident. During the stop, several residents took out their cell phones and began recording the incident while shouting statements like “Leave the immigrants alone” and “Please don’t take them away”. (more…)
