Chidogo hot dogs to open in August

Chicago-style hot dogs and au jus dipped Italian beef sandwiches are coming to our neighborhood in August, replacing the former seafood place two doors down from McDonald's at the corner of 14th and U Streets on the Southwest corner. We welcome this new business and wish them much success. They will offer draft beer to accompany their hot dogs and sandwiches.

METRO Fares go up June 27

The METRO fares were raised effective June 27 to $1.95 for the base fare for MetroRail and $1.70 for MetroBus. For more information, please visit METRO's website at http://wmata.com/. A second set of fare hikes will take place on August 1, when METRO will implement a new 20-cent surcharge during peak-of-the-peak travel periods (weekdays 7:30 to 9 a.m. and 4:30 to 6 p.m., based on the starting time of the trip). This will not only generate vital funding, it will encourage customers who have the flexibility to ride during less crowded times, alleviating congestion during the peak periods.
