    It's smalltownbrewery or something right? They have it at Costco in Pentagon City if you're in the mood for a case of it. I'd buy a 6-pack, but a case is a lot considering how sweet it is. If you...

    Is there a reason DDOT just decided not to put a cross-walk and curb cuts at the off ramp from 295 to west bound PA Ave? They're there on the other side on the 295 on-ramp from westbound PA Ave. It's...
