A reader sent me in this wonderful experience at the recently opened D and D on 14th and Girard.
"Hi PoP: just wanted to let you know that, as a fellow fan of DD coffee, I was thrilled to know that DD had opened in the neighborhood, and I stopped by there today on my way home. I'd had a busy morning, and I'd forgotten that I didn't have my wallet with me in my purse. The manager was behind the counter waiting for my order, and when I realized I didn't have money on me, he told me not to worry about it and asked what I'd like to have! I'll be headed back today to take him what I owe him. I wanted to let you know what a generous and smart (!) businessman is running the new Columbia Heights DD. Life is good."
