A dozen restaurants are slated to open within a year, which will really change matters. I, for one, am counting the days until the Bluejacket brewery opens early next year.

Also, this opened today and looks really promising:
Half Street Fairgrounds | Capitol Riverfront | Washington, DC

I'd say that all of us here in the District owe the fact that our roads are plumb to famous blerd Benjamin Banneker. I contrast that to Chicago, where I lived near blocks that just didn't line up (causing big traffic problems as traffic jogs across other streets) because the surveyors were careless idiots.

There are countless other ways in which nerds improve our lives, regardless of their color.

^ if you call banneker a blerd for the next
10 years, the new generation will not
know he was a black man, and that's an
insult to the rich black history of
washington dc.

actually the area does NOT feel dead now, on nice days. It will get a lot busier when those restaurants open.
