As GM gets older, he tends to forget when his birthday comes up. Well the same can be said for the Georgetown Metropolitan. It turned three years old last Tuesday.
On December 13, 2008, the first post of the Georgetown Metropolitan was published. Three years and 2,130 posts later, and it’s finally out of its terrible twos.
GM takes these anniversaries as an opportunity to look back at the most popular posts of the prior year. So without further ado:
- Number 5: Paul Bakery Finally Opening. Turns out GM misread the press release, and the restaurant didn’t open for about six more months. Oh well…
- Number 4: All You Need to Know About the Georgetown Metro Stop. GM walked through the history of the Metro and Georgetown and why it could finally come someday.
- Number 3: Water Ballon Fight Planned for the Waterfront. There’s no need to explain why this was popular: it had the phrase “water balloon fight”.
- Number 2: The Great Georgetown Flood of 2011. GM didn’t really have a ton to add to this story, but sometimes it pays to have a catchy title.
- Number 1: Barnes and Noble Closing. It seems like every year that the most popular post is one of the articles GM writes in a hurry when other article ideas fall through. That’s what happened when GM broke this sad news. The store is closing awfully soon, so better stop by for your last chance to linger in this third place.
