Crystal Days

We're channeling Echo & the Bunnymen today as we reflect back on several pleasant years at our Crystal City workplace; a move to downtown DC is in the offing tomorrow.  We'll miss the super-easy commute and low-key vibe back along Crystal Drive, as well as the Tuesday afternoon farmer's market outside the door.  A return to the District will offer up some better lunch and happy hour options, but we loved our time in Crystal City.
