Living in the District is reporting on the plight of street vendors on Inauguration Day, when only 500 one-day vendor permits will be given out. Each vendor can have up to three employees, but all employees must be approved with an FBI background check.

DC councilmember Jim Graham wants Adams Morgan bars to stay open all night long between January 17 and 21. His measure would allow them to serve alcohol until 5 AM and stay open 24 hours a day.

ERACISM is planning a star-studded Inaugural Purple Ball. Celebs expected include Ashley Judd, Ed Harris, and Louis Gossett Jr. 

WTOP's Adam Tuss has "inauguration trepidation"—and for good reason. He writes, "Stop and think about that for a second — THREE MILLION to FIVE MILLION people.
