Good day to my beautiful people of the DMV! It’s time we gather and talk all things D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. Welcome to What’s Going on D.C.!
Let’s talk DMV, shall we? Congratulations to DMV’s own Wanda Sykes for being nominated for two People’s Choice Awards. These nominations show just how much DMV is winning in every avenue. So, let’s head to sports. This may be old to some but new to me. Did you know DMV’s own Kevin Durant signed a four-year $198 million contract extension with the New York Nets? I definitely was today years old and let’s just say I’d like to be his new assistant.

So as of now, you all should be aware of the rat-infested Popeyes on Barracks Row in Southeast D.C.
