Yes, it’s (99.999%) true, the Real World is coming to Dupont. I think I’m in the minority when I say that I honestly don’t mind if they shoot in my neighborhood, a mere few blocks from my house. I watched the show when it first came out and thought it was entertaining, and I’m curious to see how they portray DC and Dupont in particular. Rest assured, we here at We Love DC will have plenty to say about it when it hits the airwaves.
But please, please, please, stay away from my beloved Le Pain Quotidien which, according to a sign out front this morning, looks to be opening Real Soon at 20th & P. I want to eat my steel cut oatmeal with fresh berries in peace. I don’t want a camera crew swarming around as I try to enjoy my organic parmesan and pesto omelette. LPQ isn’t about drama, it’s about pretending you’re better than those who are eating factory farmed mystery meat at the Florida Avenue Grill. Oh, and don’t mess with that place either, Real World Productions. Just stick to Starbucks, the Russia House, and Timberlake’s and everything will be just fine.
