Just a note: I will be traveling home to the Boston area for the holidays. I will still be blogging regularly, and will still be covering everything U street-related, but understand that I will only have the power of the Internets to help me while I’m 500 miles away.

Meanwhile, there will be plenty of snow (a white Christmas, for sure), family, food, and maybe a few gifts up north.
