  1. Something is wrong with that neighborhood. What are the landlords thinking? During a pandemic, is rent gouging really a strategy? This is the neighborhood that couldn't even support a McDonald;'s , despite the large number of subsidized residents.
  2. The Nongshim "Black" has good flavor.
  3. I have had nothing but mediocre to terrible delivery experiences. Maybe I order the wrong things from the wrong places. New Big Wong was disappointing. Pork chops were gristly and tough. Joe's Seafood, looked like the driver had shaken the box, they pack bread and butter packets on top of hot food so that it melts and is VERY EXPENSIVE. Joe's fried chicken has been recommended to me, but I haven't done it yet. Il Canale in Georgetown has decent pizza if you keep it simple and desserts. City Lights of China has fairly consistent food but has had the most delivery problems- lateness, cancelled orders. Miss Saigon in Georgetown can't seem to make up their minds what they are doing.

  5. I was eating at New Heights one night when John Wabeck was the chef. The owner had sent most of the staff home. Typical for the neighborhood, a party of 30 from the hotel dropped in. Chaos ensued.
  6. https://wjla.com/news/local/union-to-employees-marriott-wardman-park-hotel-may-close-after-storied-102-year-run?fbclid=IwAR3Kgbg0VPXpotXN6x3rJm063wfgUFIGs2sKu0_S1ekgXLZMhLxp-M6Ro6E I worked here briefly in the 80's. It was hilarious to watch all the empty restaurants, and then at 7:00 PM, 2.500 people all remember its time to eat.
  7. It depends if you drink the Kool-aid. Masks and social distancing are now "Democrat " fear mongering.
  8. I gave in and ordered crab cakes from Joe's Seafood the other night. On delivery, they weren't the "colossal" crab cakes they are in the restaurant. That plus onion strings were delivered in a timely fashion, nicely packaged, contacless delivery. It just didn't feel like it was worth the $60.
