This week on Not So Long Ago, GM stops by M St. and 33rd St.

These days, this block contains Pizzeria Paradiso and will soon host Pinkberry. In the background is Thomas Moser on the next block.

In 1993, half the space currently used by Pizzeria Paradiso was occupied by a Mexican restaurant. GM’s not sure of the name since the tree blocks the sign. It could be Posadas Grill maybe?

Bus Etiquette

One of GM’s favorite routines is to call ahead to Pizzeria Paradiso on the way home Thursday night and order a pizza for pick up. By the time the Metro gets to Dupont the pizza is ready and it’s just a short bus ride home to a tasty Neapolitan dinner. But at that hour the bus is normally pretty full. So here’s the etiquette question: is it rude to bring a pizza home on a crowded bus?
