Okay, these two things have nothing to do with each other beyond a bizarre bit of press release coincidence. Stacked one right after the other in my email today were announcements from Roti about their grand opening and Ford’s Theater about their annual commemoration, both happening on April 14th.
Proving that the evil that men do lives after them while the good is oft interred with their bones, the Lincoln “festivities” will happen again on the 15th while the free food is a one-time thing. Which is good, really, since the two locations are pretty far apart if you’re inclined to go for both. And you can justify both to yourself – while the Lincoln event gets you some culture the Roti free-for-all involves collecting tonations for DC Central Kitchen.
