Ted Leonsis, the owner of the Washington Wizards and Washington Capitals, is apparently a big fan of Penn Quarter’s the Partisan.
I am partisan about The Partisan. A great sense of place and a comfy setting to dine, with a fantastic host, owner, chef and neighbor. "Nate the skate” - big Caps fan! Check out the Partisan near Capital One Arena. It is awesome! https://t.co/jLuDMelfxh— Ted Leonsis (@TedLeonsis) December 3, 2017

Trump has endorsed Roy Moore on the one year anniversary of a dude firing a gun in Comet Ping Pong bc of a fake pedophilia scandal.— Dave Weigel (@daveweigel) December 4, 2017
