"I suppose there are people who can pass up free guacamole, but they're either allergic to avocado or too joyless to live."— Frank Bruni

Recent news of some business closings in the U Street/14th Street neighborhood brings sadness to me. Both ACKC and Warren Brown's Love Cafe were establishments in the area before the huge business boom that's taken shape in the past couple of years. It's sad that these businesses saw the nabe's potential early on, yet are unable to stay longer to ride the current rave of popularity. 'tis the classic story of in with the new, out with the old... or maybe it's just rising rent. Who doesn't like good hot cocoa and a neighborhood cafe? (Though Love Cafe isn't exactly stellar, it occupies a great corner location.)
