What the heck?! How can food be turned into car seats and cup holders? That’s what a whole research department at Ford is working on by figuring out how to alter chemicals and molecules to make food products into sustainable fabrics, containers and more that can be used inside View this Post

From the outside, Ten Foot Henry is a simple storefront with a shingle of a cartoon boy’s head. On the inside is a beautifully decorated space with wood beams, gorgeous green plants and bright finishings. The newly-opened restaurant is the latest addition to 1st Street SW and brings a delicious mix of dishes to the ‘hood. Avenue Magazine has a great feature about how the restaurant came to be and the origin of the unusual name so I won’t get too much into View this Post
