Stinkfest: Federal Hill vs. Adams Morgan
Some of the most diehard long-term Midnight Sunners will remember my post from waaay back about the Cross Street Stink.
In case you didn't read it (or are too lazy to click on the link), it's a gripe about the putrid mix of urine and vomit -- magnified by the summer sun.
Well, I wanna know something: Does Adams Morgan (pictured) generally smell better or worse than Cross Street?
I was in Adams Morgan on a recent Saturday night, and lemme tell ya -- it was naaaaasty.
This was a cold night, so the smell was not magnified by the summer sun. But there was a strong breeze blowing, which circulated the stink. Double eww.
I even saw what appeared to be the member of a bachelorette party siphoning her stomach into a sidewalk trash can. And it wasn't even that late! I think it was like midnight at that point. Maybe earlier. I was too nauseous to even think about Jumbo Slice.
Back when I was in college (about three or four years ago), I used to visit Adams Morgan more often to play music. And if it stunk that bad back then, I didn't notice it.
Has Adams Morgan gotten smellier? Or did I just go on a bad night?
