Last night around 10pm, several police cars descended upon Marx Cafe questioning patrons about supposed gun shots fired in the area.  Though no customers had heard said gun fire (they were far too engaged in the ‘revolutionary cuisine,’ no doubt), the police continued through Mt. Pleasant investigating the reported disturbance.  

I’d really really (really) like to say this is related to DC handgun ban repeal (see below post), but that’s probably not the case.  Though maybe I’m right; perhaps the offending individuals were celebrating the repeal by firing off their now legal weapons.
