DooWop Talent...On A Metro Platform?

I'm sure many of you have already encountered After The Storm, as this certainly isn't breaking news, but I figured a video of the group was warranted.

Plus, we want to get your opinion on their musical abilities.

For those of you who don't know After The Storm, they are a group of four men, generally dressed in Washington Redskin jerseys, that sing old school DooWop music on Metro platforms to entertain people who are waiting on trains.

Check out the video above, taken at Metro Center, which features the group singing songs like "My Girl" and explaining why they always wear Redskin jerseys to perform.

What do you think about the group?  We want to know.

Helping Women in Transition Make Sound Financial Decisions

Helping Women in Transition Make Sound Financial Decisions

A Woman in Transition is a woman who finds herself bracing for a new phase in life.  “Transition” is not just a change in routines, relationships or social status – it is a fundamental shift in a woman’s identity.  It could be brought on with purposeful intent, such as voluntarily retiring from a successful career, or entering a second marriage.  It could be brought on by an unexpected surprise, such as losing a spouse to a heart attack, or becoming single after a painful divorce.  For a Woman in Transition, the uncertainty of the future can result in anxiety and fear and/or excitement and anticipation.

Shake Shack in Dupont Looking For Employees

Shake Shack, the latest eatery to move into the Capital City and join the D.C. burger war, is looking for employees.

The burger spot, which will open its doors at 1216 18th Street NW in Dupont sometime in the near future, has the above sign pasted on their door.

Could be a decent gig---probably get some free burgers and shakes out of it too.

D.C. Residents React To Mayor Gray's Arrest

There has been tons of reaction, both locally and nationally, to last night's arrest of D.C. Mayor Vince Gray.  

But one voice has been somewhat overlooked in all of this: The voice of the D.C. people...your voice.

We hit Dupont Circle to see how a few D.C. residents felt about the Mayor's arrest.  Overall, the comments we heard were pretty supportive.  Check out the video above to see what these locals had to say.

How do you feel about the Mayor's arrest?  Do you think it was a smart move or a poor decision?
