Don't blame just the marble countertop and stainless-steel fridge

While the rise of so-called luxury apartments isn’t helping DC's affordable housing crisis, the skyrocketing price of land—$1.2 million per acre—may be the source of the problem. More developers are adding fancy amenities to lure new residents and make up for the cost of building new apartments. 


Related: Medicine on the street

Practitioners from Unity Health Care provide check ups on the street, meeting patients on foot throughout the city, conducting preliminary exams and arranging follow-up appointments at the office. More work is necessary in NE & SE; early stages of a non-emergency hotline could help cover more ground.


Bloomin’ soon

The cherry blossoms are expected to reach peak bloom between March 27-30 this year. Park officials say they’re expecting a drop in tourism this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak, so maybe you’ll have a better shot at getting that perfect Tidal Basin ‘gram.


A limit to your pet love?

How much is too much money to spend on saving a pet’s life? What if you had to do it two or three times? In this sober meditation on the grim cost-benefit analysis of a pet’s life when resources are limited, pet owners share their anecdotes of the tough decision making process.

Get high, go eat

And you’re pretty much a food critic! Or this specific critic, at least—since 2018, Joel Haas has vaped before eating at 525 different fine dining restaurants in 20 states and documented it all on his blog, High Speed Dating. He’s covered Seven Reasons, Sushi Nakazawa, Tail Up Goat, A Rake’s Progress, and more. Get insp-high-ered and revel in some culinary masterpieces. (Or just walk to 7-11 and get Flamin' Hot Cheetos, your call.)
