It was with a heavy heart and a hungry belly that I stumbled into the Capital City Diner this morning. Owner Matt Ashburn, after fighting a long and valiant battle, had announced that D.C.’s only true diner was closing its doors today, and I needed to grab the cup by the handle and have one last cup of joe, one last greasy, delicious breakfast before the grill went cold and the lights went dim along Bladensburg Road and the Trinidad neighborhood was left with a hollow void in its culinary soul. I hope you enjoy this brief photo essay and tribute to Washington, D.C.’s Capital City Diner.
This has been a difficult year for much of the world, and at times it seems that we are adrift and without direction. But, as long as there is one spark, or ray of light that shines through the darkness, one hand that reaches out to help a stranger, one tongue that gives voice to a kind word, or one touch that says “I care” then there IS hope, there is love. Wishing Everyone Peace on Earth and a Happy Holiday.
