Society 2.0: This Week’s Top “Status” Report

by Editorial

In this year, DC has been hit by earthquakes, a snowpocalypse, and record-breaking summer heat: Is mother nature trying to tell us something?  The buzz in the Twitterverse this week revolved around this morning’s 3.6 magnitude earthquake, the oil cap, and a sweet tooth for Georgetown Cupcake and it’s new show.  Get your “Aftershock Cocktail” at West End Bistro and toast to the remarkable fact that DC is still standing!
