We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

In tomorrow’s City Paper, you’ll find:

  • A cover story by Dave Jamieson about community activist David Sobelsohn, who was brutally mugged—to the point that he can’t remember the subsequent two months of his life.
  • In Loose Lips, James Jones reveals the festering snit between councilmembers Kathy Patterson and Marion Barry.
  • John Metcalfe on the 2006 city Expungement Summit: a circuslike yearly event where hundreds show up to get their criminal records cleared (usually unsuccessfully).
  • Dave McKenna files another classic in Cheap Seats: Meet Baseball Adams, the Nats superfan that calls the game for you.
  • In Show & Tell: Nell Boeschenstein details one theater company’s struggle to perform in a fountain. Plus details on Artomatic’s ongoing venue search.
  • In Young & Hungry: Tim Carman profiles the evolution of H Street NE soul-food standby Ohio Restaurant.
  • And film, music, books, art, and more.
