Looks Like We Made It....Capitol Hill

Well, Capitol Hill has made it. I know because yesterday, to my utter delight, I opened my New York Times and discovered that my neighborhood -- my dear Capitol Hill -- was listed as a fashionable place to shop. Goodbye to Georgetown snobbery. Hello Eastern Market and funky shopping, To be fair, they did mention Sassanova, one of my favorite places to shop for shoes in that part of town....and I did buy my Indonesia-imported bed at Muleh. But here's what they had to say about shopping in the nation's capital.

The city's best shopping is clustered around Eastern Market in Capitol Hill, the U Street corridor, and the streets around M Street and Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown. Betsy Fisher.
