On Our Radar:
It's a District Thang
Posted by:  Magda Nakassis

There are a lot of things I like about Capitol Hill Sporting Goods. I like that they have a wall plastered with photos of DC "celebs" posing with the owner. I like that one of those local stars is Anwan Glover (aka Big G, member of go-go group the Backyard Band, and actor of Slim Charles on The Wire). I like that the guy running the shop told me that Anwan Glover goes to the dentist across the street, on Barracks Row. I like their tagline and branded design: "D.C. THANG." And I like that the co-owner was wearing "D.C. THANG" paraphernalia from head to toe. But mostly I just like this design! It's genius! It's a line drawing of the Beltway, with the signs for adjoining highways embroidered! Hey, "I &lt3 NY," eat your heart out.

Comment: Seriously? If DC had a failblog, this embroidered image would be on it. Is our freeway jungle the best part about this town? I couldn't be LESS proud of the Beltway. Don't get me wrong, the National Capital Area is great. But freeways are not.
