Gypsy House the site of some true breaking news
Lori Midson's post on the Yelp review of Lou's -- written more than a month before Lou's scheduled opening -- prompted this comment from frequent critic Carly:
Gypsy House Cafe, 1279 Marion Street.
Westword's Cafe Society is on the cutting edge of BREAKING NEWS once again!!!
Because this blog is sorely in need of exciting content: a car drove into the Gypsy House this morning.
We'd thank you for the tip, Carly, but as it turns out, one of our Westword contributors -- Ru Johnson, a regular on the Backbeat blog -- was already on the case, and snapped this photo right after a car crashed into Gypsy House, a popular Capitol Hill hangout.
Although the joint's windows are now covered with plywood, the coffee pot is still on.
