DC Veg Fest this Weekend

In staying with our animal theme this weekend, we thought we'd give a shout out to the DC VegFest taking place at Yards Park this Saturday.  Stop by (of course after stopping by our City Dogs Rescue adoption event at the office!) to grab some vegan friendly food, hear great speakers and listen to the sounds of local musicians. They'll be up and running from 11am - 6pm and best of all the event is free!

Where DC Residents Come From...And Leave For

The Washington Business Journal covered an interesting story today about where DC residents come from and where they then move to.  The city's population was around 600,000 in 2010 and went up to nearly 650,000 by 2013.  They found that a lot of these new residents are living in the "up and coming"neighborhoods of Capitol Riverfront, NoMa and Petworth.
While every state claims residents from DC, most often its Maryland who takes residents out of the city and vice versa.  In the year the study was conducted, results showed that Maryland sent 12,422 new residents to DC but took 15,005 out of DC.  There were five other states who took more out than putting in.  Mississippi had 176, Louisiana 39, Wyoming 27, West Virginia 6 and Kentucky 4.
The study delved deeper into what makes people leave DC and the most obvious reason was the cost of living.  Mississippi has the lowest cost of living in the United States while DC is in the top two for highest.
