Buncha things

1. Is it a sin to eavesdrop on a nun? What about two nuns? What if you're on the Metro and they are sitting behind you?
2. Had a great lunch at The Good Stuff Eatery, a place opened by Top Chef contestant Spike. It rocked. First, Spike was working the grill right in front of us. Yes, he had on one of his signature hats. I saw him pitch what appeared to be a perfectly good burger into the trash, so apparently quality control is on, baby. He plans to franchise the hell outta that place. It was in the Capitol South neighborhood, which we really liked. It was full of young, smart folks, and made me realize how sleepy Arlington / Rosslyn is. We also checked out the Eastern Market, which was great.
3. Too tired from 4+ miles of walking to type....

I'm glad you found Eastern Market on a Saturday. It hasn't been quite the same after the big fire but it's coming back. And the bakery is one of the DC outlets for hamantaschen all year long.

Jon Effin Rubin gets tired from four puny miles of walking?!!

Say it ain't so!

Maybe it was five miles. It was tough to be certain - my Pedometer.... never actually existed.
