Can you say “Million Man March”, Beatles’ concert, LiveAid, NBA All-Star Weekend, Super Bowl victory parade, Hawaiian luau, Times Square on New Year’s Eve, and Kenyan holiday all rolled into one?
This means Metro (our subway system) will have to add extended hours too. Talk about an economic stimulus!? Wait staff, bartenders, redcaps, cabbies, tour operators, vendors, restaurateurs, hoteliers, weekly renters and newspapers all stand to make record profits- and this less than a month after Christmas. What no one is taking into account is that the day before Inauguration Day, the birthday of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr. (observed) is a federal holiday.
