“Hands off Gianna”
More than 100 American University students protested this week

inexplicably opposed by Georgetowners who say the deli will attract crowds and vermin
(who, when you’re rich enough, apparently start to look the same).
Leftover candy? There’s a plan for that.
Okay, we didn’t actually get this from Elizabeth Warren, but from the DC chefs Washingtonian spoke with.
