In Chicago we ate at a veg soul food restaurant the rushed to get to an espresso place recommended by Kristen of Modern Coffee. This might seem like a once in a life occurance, but oddly enough it happened again in DC.
Mmmmmm, good food.
Hurry, they are about to close!
Whew, we made it.
Excellent espresso. Moments later, they closed and asked us to leave.
