Thanks to Meredith for passing on from M Street Yoga:
“Today, M Street Yoga will be closing its doors after five wonderful years in SW DC! We are so grateful to our dedicated students and the community for welcoming us from the very beginning.
Over the past two months, since we announced the closure, so many of you have been incredibly supportive. You have shared stories of your personal growth, opened up about how this studio became your “home away from home,” and encouraged us to feel at peace with our decision. Southwest DC is a special place, and with this kind of support for local and small businesses, it will stay that way. Read More

Help me out with this one. Top sign, makes complete sense. Second sign… still with you there. Third sign… trumps all above signs when it pertains to the right of the sign? I sat at this sign for a good minute trying to figure out if I could park there. Then I realized that’s what they wanted from me. Not today, DC, not today.”

DJ Winterman tags us from the Wharf and notes:
“The wharf renovation project is exactly what people are talking about when Gentrification is brought up… There is really no good reason why a hot dog should ever cost $8 and why an outdoor food stand shouldn’t also accept cash.
