"Real World" at 2000 S St NW; a Halo Lounge Angle?

An update from this morning’s posting Luis and I wandered over to 20th and S NW late this morning to get a photo of the rumored house-to-be for the DC version of “The Real World: DC.” We heard sounds of workmen inside and, just by chance, saw a couple of guys outside (not workmen). One had a camera and the other one was taking notes. Without identifying their affiliation, I will say that they confirmed that 2000 S Street NW will be the house for The Real World.

Moreover, at least one of the cast members will be a gay man and apparently one of the local venues for the drama-to-come will be Halo Lounge at 1435 P Street NW—across from Whole Foods and located right here in Borderstan. We will try to have more details for you later.

As noted before, I think DC needs some vapid drama with pretty kids doing faux-dramatic stuff in an unreal world setting. Way too many people here who want to save the world (but God bless them). We need some silly balance.
