It’s another stunning summer day around these parts and even the mosquitoes are behaving, so I don’t know what is going on but LET US ENJOY.

More astute commenters have noticed that a real go-go tribute would have lasted a lot longer. (Washingtonian)

This is a good moment to remember that &pizza started on H Street NE and is delicious. Hey, whatcha doing for lunch? Supporting women’s rights? Cool. DCist
