  • YES, the rumors are true–Obama was at Taylor Gourmet’s 14th Street restaurant this morning, where he discussed small business and potential tax credits with four local shop owners, including Taylor’s Casey Patten and David Mazza. (via Borderstan)

  • Followup/Let’s Face It, This is What We Were All Wondering: According to Washington City Paper, POTUS ordered the Spruce Street (roasted turkey, prosciutto, roasted red peppers, and provolone). Whether the hoagie will be renamed for the President is TBD, but we’re betting on it.
  • A general rule of thumb for an amazing summer: Art and Soul is throwing weekly crab boil patio happy hours each Wednesday (!!!!!!). Join us next week for their first patio party of the season, fools. It’s going to be delicious.
  • And in celebration of the Folger Shakespeare Library’s 80th birthday, the library is newly-and-fully embracing social media, utilizing twitter, blogs and virtual field trips to help spread The Bard’s gospel. (via HuffPost DC)
  • Whether it’s appropriate for business or play, we’ve said before, we’re ALL ABOUT NEONS this spring/summer. Here’s a fresh roundup of the best neon jewelry you can find on Etsy right now. (via Washingtonian)
  • And hey, D.C.! Keep up the good work! We’re on track for an all-time low in traffic fatalities in 2012, with only(?) six counted thus far. (via TBD)
  • And finally, speaking of transportation: “The bicycle messenger has been a fixture of the Washington DC landscape for decades. This mini-documentary explores a handful of the present day road warriors as they battle traffic and technology in pursuit of a fair wage and a freewheeling style of life. This is a preliminary cut, currently in post-production wrap up. Produced as part of the Corcoran School of Art + Design New Media Photojournalism Masters Program by Fixed Focus Productions.” (via Courier Culture via Prince of Petworth)
