Why is &pizza coming to Capitol Hill a story that readers should know? I’m not asking to be snippy or judgmental, but I would seriously like to know. Is it Black-owned? Do they have an initiative to hire Black folks, or kids? I just want to be informed with what’s going on in my neighborhood and how it affects Black people.

For Grown Folks Only

I was wondering if The Informer could include some sort of guide or dedicated articles to older people, 50-plus, who are single, who may be starting over after divorce and who needs some help navigating the social world again. All of the clubs and bars seems to cater to people in their 20s and 30s. I don’t want the bar scene, but what about older singles? Where do we have to go?
