While trying to make sense of another posting that I haven’t published I was doing a wee bit of research and came across something in the August 10, 1955 Post:
“THE TAGS Jean Moran uses for the four dining rooms in hers and Georgetown’s (much needed) new restaurant! It is called “The Espionage”….”
1955 and a writer, Mary Van Rensselaer Thayer, is getting excited about a “much needed” new restaurant in Georgetown. Now it has more restaurants than you can shake a stick at. [Mari wildly shakes a twig]. That bit of excitement, seems to be the same kind of hopeful excitement and desire that’s over on this end of Shaw today. But will we have to wait 1/2 a century?
