Cafe 227

Thursday, February 23, 2006


Here's a nice article from the Washington Post this morning that describes some of the issues facing the incumbent community in Shaw (the neighborhood directly east of Cafe 227) in the face of rapid gentrification.

While the tone is quite serious, that should not preclude you from enjoying the occassional nugget of unintentional comedy, such as this:

"In the bad years, yes, there was drug dealing and violence, like the night his brother was shot twice in the leg. But it still was community."

(I know there are better arguments against rapid gentrification than this....)
