Mark it. It’s almost time for the No Pants Metro Ride DC 2018:

“Sunday, January 7, 2018 at 3 PM – 5 PM
Hancock Park
800 C St SW

Our 10th year riding the DC Metro without pants!

Act as if it’s any other day: you’re traveling to/from work, you’re headed to meet some friends, you’re en route to some appointment, you’re carting off your old Christmas tree, you’re a tourist not quite sure how to navigate Metro… you just happen to be without pants. (more…)

“A Home Depot delivery truck parked itself on 16th St NW ( southbound), right where it intersects with Irving St, at 8:45 AM! It started unloading for a construction site without a care that they were causing a traffic jam for thousands of commuters. This is total BS.

Turned that intersection into one southbound lane and forced everyone to merge. Cars were still getting through, but in a trickle.

I didn’t get a look at the sign – but this can’t be legal at that time, right? Wait until 9:30 or 10 for your deliveries if you can’t get there before rush hour starts.”
