Surprise, surprise.

Guess what? Metro’s not putting in vendors after all. (Thanks to Hank Silverberg at WTOP for the tip.) And apparently, the plan fronted today only included proposals for spaces to sell flowers, newspapers and dry cleaning services. (Dry cleaning? Keep Roy Pearson away!)

Oh, and to everyone’s non-surprise, food vendors were also rejected. I wonder why?

The board told General Manager Joe Catoe to go re-think his plans and they’ll (maybe) revisit the issue next month.

And in other news, pigs still don’t fly.

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.

  1. Why in the hell would I drop my dry-cleaning off at Metro? I don’t get it.

    The food thing was ridiculous in the first place, I don’t know what that was about. Do you guys read your own rules or what?
