DC Institution

Check out this article from the Washington Post. Stoney's, a dive bar/restaurant in DC, is closing after nearly 40 years. The article gets it almost all right--the place is a total dive. One point of information: Tunnicliff's, the bar and grill owned by the same folks, was also open the night of Hurricane Isabel. Read the whole thing anyway, especially if you live in D.C. and have never been there. It's your last chance.

What, a first-class dive facing extinction? By the National Association for the Education of Young Children, no less? What could better serve the educational needs of young (I sense a superfluidy here) children than a world-class watering hole that should be preserved on the National Register of Historic Places?
Ok, so I'm from NJ also, and I admit to a fondness for certain dives, but I submit that any person or group professing to be concerned for children - who, after all, do grow up to drinking age and beyond - would do well to reconsider any plans to force the closing of the Fraunces Tavern of D.C.
Give those Young Children something to look forward to.
