Check out this VERY early promo for WMATA’s “new” metro rail service. Be sure to watch for sightings of the Rhode Island Ave station at the 1:37 and 11:22 minute marks. Not much seems to have changed – except the fashion. Also noticed – all the trains are only running 2 cars!!

Ready for some caffeine-infused happiness?
FoRIA is excited to welcome Zeke’s Coffee of DC to their future home at 2300 RIA-NE!
The small batch roastery is a favorite at many farmers markets and retailers across the region. Owner and DC resident, John Kepner, says they will be roasting and serving a wide selection of coffees at the in-house “coffee lab.” And yes, outdoor seating is in the plans!
A summer grand opening is in the works so stay tuned. Also, be sure to check out their website – www.zekescoffeedc.com – to see some of their coffee selections, plus a rendering of their facade plans.
