Party on Penn

Originally uploaded by MatthewBradley

Via Matthew Bradley, here’s the scene at 16th St and Penn Ave NW outside the White House tonight following the news networks calling Obama’s electoral victory. Quite a party!

I’ve got people yelling ecstatically and blowing their horns here downtown, Twittered reports of street parties and gunfire/fireworks in Columbia Heights, celebrations in Adams Morgan and Georgetown… what kind of spontaneous parties are breaking out in your neighborhood?

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
