Submit Your Photos!

GM was asked yesterday whether he takes photo submissions. And the answer is yes! Several people have submitted photos over the years, and GM is happy to publish them. So you can send them to Editor@georgetownmetropolitan.com or, better yet, you can post them to Flickr and simply make sure to include the word “Georgetown” in the description or title of the photo. That is where GM gets most of his morning posting photos. (If you do email them, make sure to include whether and how you would like to be credited for the photo.)

One other tip: given the layout of the page, landscape or square photos work a lot better than portrait photos. That’s for sending them in!

New Bikeshare Station Coming, and Hopefully More

A new Capital Bikeshare station will soon be installed on K St. And hopefully more will be on the way too.

The new location will be at 31st and K. You may ask: why are they installing one so close to another station at 30th and K? Good question! It has several answers. First, it creates redundancy, which is useful for a location like the Georgetown waterfront, which is so popular. It also puts the station closer to the actual park. Also, it’s just an easier location to put the station since there is so much space on that particular stretch of K St..

This is hopefully not the last expansion we’ll see in Georgetown in the near future. A gaping hole in the current network of stations exists on the west end of M St. Right now if people want to bike to or from Rosslyn, they need to pick up a bike all the way over by Wisconsin, and then travel through some of the most dangerous blocks in the city for bicycles.

Now and Some Date Uncertain

One of GM’s favorite TV shows is Archer, a cartoon spy farce. If you haven’t watched it, GM envies you, because you get to watch it all for the first time.

Anyway, GM was rewatching an old episode the other day, and he noticed that it has a scene with a photo from the graduation day of the main character, Sterling Archer. It never explicitly states that Archer is a Georgetown grad, but this photo makes it clear he’s a Hoya. Perhaps one of the writers or producers went to Georgetown? Continue reading
