What we did in 2018
This year, we took a huge step forward by
publishing 51 articles on our blog
—oh-so-close to one per week. In some of our favorites from those articles, we:
broke down the vexing 2018 local elections
, where everyone said they wanted change—and every incumbent won
the best places to have a panic attack downtown
asked why the Metropolitan Police Department got a raise when complaints were on the rise
published a first-hand essay on why
decriminalizing sex work will protect black trans Washingtonians
explained how a bureaucratic change
helped young Washingtonians express gender fluidity in the school system
13 kinds of names for apartment buildings in DC
reminded why Marion Barry still looms large in the city's memory
met the director of "What Happened to Chocolate City?"
truly scary (satirical) stories of Halloween in DC
catalogued a bibliophilic city's many book clubs
interviewed the DJ who first played Goldlink's "Crew,"
the biggest hip hop record to come out of the DMV in years
how to grow a forest in the city
talked to the owner of
an African drum shop on the verge of displacement
put on our food critic's hat and
ranked the best beers to drink warm at house parties
emailed with the queen of emails
Call Yr Girlfriend's
commented on the
Great Scooter Debate of 2018
asked Seattle what it would be like if HQ2 came here
your favorite bus route is the 90
visited luxury high rises to
understand the impact of short-term rentals on affordable housing
money stacked by the restaurant industry against Initiative 77—and in Councilmember Jack White's pockets
Next year, we're going to try to do even more—and you'll be able to help. Stay tuned!
