Holiday Leftovers

Marion Barry

While covering the mayoral inauguration on Sunday, Tom snapped this photo of Ward 8 Council Member and Mayor-for-Life Marion Barry. We think it’s begging for a caption. Some ideas to get you started from our Flickr friends:

“What, you mean I have to pay those taxes AGAIN this year?”

“Obama makes it to the White House, and here I am waiting in line for Sbarro. Stupid past decisions.”

Food truck limitations

With DC Central Kitchen CEO Michael Curtin promoting food trucks as a good opportunity for people to get into the restaurant business without needing to be wildly financially successful already just to get started, it occurred to me that there’s a limit. There are some food trucks I would not like to see:

  • “5 Second Rule Fries” (If you can pick your spilled lunch off the sidewalk in 5 seconds or less, it’s free!)
  • “Guess the Meat”
  • “Unlicensed Steak Peddler” (thanks, Kathy Henderson!)
  • “What’s that Smell?”
  • Marion’s Snow Cones
  • Sausage Party
