You Can’t Beat the Price!

In case you missed the official announcement, the Dunkin’ Donuts at 14th and U Streets NW is open! And according to DCist, they’re giving out free medium coffee to everyone who visits through October 30, so get it while you can.

Good News for Drivers!

Amidst some things that nobody likes about our local government, the District has finally moved to a system that allows you to pay for parking from your phone! Greater Greater Washington reveals that there are now apps that you can use on your smartphone to pay, using the posted sign to give you the important number that identifies your particular spot.

Good News for Immigrants!

And speaking of the government taking a stand, according to Washington City Paper, Mayor Gray signed an executive order saying that DC Police won’t share information about arrestees’ immigration status with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. WCP points out that the FBI could still forward information over, but it’s still something for immigrant rights.
