No good deed...

As many of you know, a number of people in the government IT community -- most notably Ed Meagher -- have spent their Friday nights at Fran O'Brien's Stadium Steakhouse in Washington, D.C. for soldiers who were severely wounded in Iraq. Meagher, of course, went on to win FCW's prestigious Fed 100 Eagle Award for his efforts.

Well, it ends up that Fran O'Brien's has lost its lease. Here is the story from the WP:
