Wordless Wednesday: Kramerbooks and Afterwords Cafe
I was in the nation's capital last week for the mid-year CRS meetings as part of the NAR meetings, at the Hilton right up the street from Dupont Circle.
As I do every visit during these annual jaunts (since 2006) in May I walked by an old (and I do mean OLD) haunt, the iconic Kramerbooks and Afterwords Cafe on Connecticut Avenue just up from the actual circle. I didn't dine there this trip but have in the past - it's changed quite a bit as far as the cafe from the early years.
Kramers, as it's often fondly called, was established in 1976, the first DC bookstore/cafe, and is known far and wide. It always brings back very fond memories to see it even if I don't step inside - I worked there as a bartender and server in the summer of 1977 as I was graduating from the University of Maryland before heading off to grad school. Most importantly, it's where my wife and I met, the night before my graduation.
