look up any word, like cunt:
 
13.
The tightest neighborhood in DC. Contains LeDroit Park, U Street, and Shaw itself. A Mecca of black culture with some of the best jazz and the occasional Go Go. 9:30 club is there, as is Howard University. You can't go to Shaw without going to Ben's Chili Bowl (12th and U) and maybe bumping into Portis, Cosby, Dre, Arenas, Fenty, and any number of other celebrities.

It's kinda gentrified now, but it's way too close to "the ave" (Georgia Ave), and certain parts of North Capital St] to lose its street appeal.
I'm going to Ben's in Shaw on U St. to get a half-smoke: Chili, onions, and mustard.

The place I myself hate working at the most out of anything. Your grades will drop. You will lose your social life. Your moral will drop until your not sure if your working day or night but in a continuous phase of: Greeting,Offering, and Thanking and also the occasional furious customer mad about prices or something else that you've tried to do, but cannot please the customer for some odd reason that they take out all their problems on you because it's such a hard job being a stay at home soccer mom that is aging away and cannot stop it. This is shaws...
Shaws employee: GET ME THE HELL OTTAU HERE!!!!!!
Boss: Yous still have 8 hours left..
Shaws employee: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
