Washington Tweets

Washington Tweets
by Bill Adler

Washington tweets. A lot. The Washington Tweets column is a collection of the most interesting, recent Washington-area tweets. These tweets reveal a candid and fascinating portrait of what is on our collective minds: Twitter gives a snapshot of what we're doing, thinking and hoping for. Washington Tweets is Washington in the raw. Bill Adler tweets at @billadler.

Man, business in #ClevelandPark is looking good tonight! @StArnoldsDC @dinodc @dcpalena @MediumRareDC all busy & fun!

Newark Street Giant supermarket closing in March to pave way for new supermarket + development: #DC #clevelandpark

If you live in the DC metro area, stop by @UofMaryland to meet 3 #ISS crew members on Feb. 14. More info:

It's not just Superbowl Sunday: Happy National Weatherperson's Day to our DC & national weather friends!

Told my videographer to meet me at the Krispy Kreme entrance of the Dupont metro station. The "Hot Doughnuts Now" sign is taunting me.

This much should be said for the Park Police: they allowed an Occupy live-streamer behind police lines all day.

At a booze tasting group in Adams Morgan. Everyone brings a bottle & shares. This is exactly what I want to do with caviar!

Holy sardine can! Fascinating photo of DC parking lot during 1974 bus strike: @in_focus h/t @thetransitfan

I love/hate how in movies set in DC never show the city having traffic.

Riders aren't imagining it: The number of cracked rails on #WMATA is growing. Last year more than doubled 2009.

#WMATA tweeted Sarah McLachlan lyrics to emotionally send off 3 Dupont Circle Metro escalators:

Really enjoyed @RippleWDC in Cleveland Park. Great food and drink, plus my whole hard to please family left happy.

Art-hopping in #TrinidadDC along Florida Ave. Yay for walkable neighborhood with art galleries!

No @bikeshare in my two go-to stations downtown. Walking to and from stations is doubling my trip time.

Dorothy Brizill is truly a vital civic institution. But she always sounds angry at someone.

Well, Redskins fans, at least take comfort in the fact that we were only team to beat the NFL champs twice this season:

Folding Electric Bike: lithium powered, 17+ mph, 25 mile range. Get around town without having to worry about Metro again, (Adv)
