  1. CUBS WIN!!!! To ending 71 years of waiting and on a terrific double play....
  2. Moon cakes. Because the moon is so beautiful. Happy Mid-Autumn Moon Festival everyone!
  3. No. It's not that "these programs are catching on," but these programs already caught on. I've read they've increased staffing or hours in certain places, but the problem is that most of the interview sites are only at airports because of the way GE is based and structured. We are lucky to have two airports (three counting BWI) and the CBP office (Reagan Building) to choose from, but outside of here, there is only the airport option, hence the wait.
  4. Connecticut Fines Total Wine & More for Selling Below Minimum Price (Btw, this article states this chain is Maryland-based. Title update?)
  5. Because you have to wait a week. There are probably open times tomorrow at the Reagan Building.... We had to reserve a time. IIRC, GE recommends making a reservation. Or requires it. Can't recall. But worth every penny. Especially when going through customs at Toronto Pearson. A nightmare without GE. Actually, the airport custom experience that prompted me to immediately apply for GE, haha.
  6. Not maybe. The Reagan Building is one of the interview sites for GE, and one I recommend, as 1. the interviewers are nicer there, and 2. the interview time is so short, my mom was in and out of there in 10 mins, I think.
  7. I'm not quite sure why folks aren't taking advantage of Chef's deal, as the ribs AND pulled pork sandwich are both AMAZING! I've never seen gelittleman scarf anything down as fast as he did that pulled pork sandwich tonight, and he usually whines about eating BBQ because of its "spiciness." He only shared a sliver, and that sliver was so tender and tasty, I can see why he inhaled it. The cornbread, which you can add for $2.50 was so buttery and good, paired very well with the tenderly smoked, falling off the bones, half-rack of ribs. Please go and say hello to Chef. He's truly an amazing
  8. The Cape May-Lewes ferry is definitely worth trying out once, as the scenery is gorgeous. We avoided some traffic taking this longer route (the ride is 85mins long) and had fun stretching our sea legs on shore at Hopkins Dairy Farm for ice cream afterwards.
  9. ^ I was awfully sad to see how that HT is located right across from the Local Grocer. I really hope they survive the big conglomerate...
  10. I like the Upton Hill batting cage, but I've only been there once and it's seasonal, of course, since it's outdoors. I've been meaning to check out the StrikeZone academy one of these days. There are also a few out in the Dulles cooridor...
  11. For anyone working in the Chinatown area, Reren Lamen has temporarily popped-up in the old Mehak restaurant. I think another ramen place will be there eventually.
  12. The horchata was so refreshing! We went Friday night and ordered a few tacos, the pork & tomatillo tamale, a side order of cod, and hush puppies. Hush puppies definitely hit the spot, although if you order this, you might not have room for the flautas. The pork taco was really good, and the fish and hush puppies not heavily-sitting, but I found the tamale only so-so. I'm not sure if I expected more flavor, or just hyped up my expectations? But that horchata....
  13. Could you be a bit more specific on what you ordered so we know what you considered were the 3 O's? (Guess too bad that it wasn't a good O?) This would help members figure out which dishes to avoid if one of us decides to dine here. Thanks.
