Our Morning: Give Us Shelter

Loyal City Desk readers (all four of you), please direct your attention today toward Housing Complex. It's another of the all-day reporting blitzes by the vast Washington City Paper newsroom (see Food Day, Average Day) if, you know, you got the time.
Watch for architectural/vocab dispatches from Beaujon, "jump squad" efforts from Cherkis and Montgomery, doings [...]

Our Morning Roundup: The Day After Food Day

Good morning, City Desk readers. If you missed our Food Day coverage yesterday, please give it a looksie now. There were sports. There was meat. There was heartache. Dumpster-diving, even.

Hungry for Politics: The Wrap

LL learned a lot of food trivia today. For instance:

There's a great debate over which Starbucks to patronize among John [...]

Power Lunch Locale: M&S Grill, at 13th and F. He gets the blue [...]

Hungry for Politics: Marion Barry

Marion Barry is Ward 8 councilmember and a former four-term mayor of the District of Columbia.
Favorite Restaurant: "Don't have one." Barry then goes on to name dozens of restaurants, past and present, that he has patronized. "Player's [Lounge, now Georgena's]—that's at the top of that list." There he favors the fish, collard greens, and candied [...]
