“Here’s a milk bottle I found last weekend when I squeezed into my ridiculously tight crawlspace to repair some holes. Shimmying my way out I passed by this sticking out of the dirt. From what I found, H.L. Alden was a milk dealer in the 1910’s-20’s based out of 211 10th St. SW. Read More

“This gem in SW made it about 36 hours.”
Not quite as entitled as the previous examples we’ve seen this week but, well, I can’t really think of a scenario for parking like this unless you are blind drunk or waaaaay to old to be driving. Remind me to tell you a story about the later that I witnessed a couple weeks ago.

“The concept will be opening an outpost called America Eats at DC United’s Audi Field! America Eats will feature signature menu items including Pimento Grilled Cheese, Sloppy Joe, Half Smoke with local sausage, creole mustard, sliced tomato, and pickled onions, and French fries. The outpost will open for D.C United’s first game of the season against the Colorado Rapids on Saturday, February 29th and will be open for the remainder of the season.”
