Cioppino: Hey-o! It’s Italian Seafood Stew!

Queen of Italy Michelle Obama Will Receive Free Olive Oil Forever

So we all know by now that our First Lady Michelle Obama hates Oprah and taunted her with pie, or whatever, who cares. Our FLOTUS really has no time for ridiculous accusations, because in case you haven’t noticed, we have an obesity crisis on our hands.

(How can STARBUCKS go out of business?!) Today we pay homage to all that is left in this once thriving neighborhood.  Read more on End of Times For Cleveland Park…
