Most of our regular readers know that I lived on Capitol Hill since the fall of 2000, until this past spring when, for financial reasons-mostly, we moved to the near suburbs to save some money.
During most of that time we worked on the Hill as well.
The number one thing that I miss the most, on a near daily basis is Eastern Market (and here). I would do most of my shopping there, get lunch there and just wander the stalls on the weekends. If you haven't been, please go and support the vendors and artists that make Eastern Market one of the greatest gems of the city.
Now that I don't live on the Hill, many of my visits are coordinated with my visits to either my Dr., Dentist or Eye Dr....but I know that I'll be making a major pilgrimage 11/22, to get most of what I need for Thanksgiving.
And right after Thanksgiving...what did I do on a daily basis until Christmas...walk through all the pine trees hanging under the canopy. I loved it and miss it.
