vermin and toxins… not just for breakfast anymore

There’s nothing quite like strolling into your office, logging in to your computer, and discovering an email from the facilities manager that the cafe on the ground floor of your building has been closed for a week due to flagrant violations of the health code:

Cafe Express
1100 15th St. NW

Closed Oct. 23 for failure to minimize the presence of vermin and operating without a license, in circumstances that may endanger public health, in gross unsanitary conditions, including using toxic or poisonous materials, and with incorrect holding temperatures for potentially hazardous foods. Reopened last Thursday.

Awesome. What a way to start the day. Makes me glad I’ve never bought anything there but bottles of soda- it always smells funny and I’ve never wanted to eat anything made there.
