Locals React To LivingSocial Dollar Lunch Day

There was an unusual buzz throughout Downtown D.C. this morning, an energy that far surpassed the standard Friday.

The excitement, shared by locals all over the District, was a result of the city's preeminent company, LivingSocial, giving back to the community it calls home.

In an effort to promote the launch of its new instant deals feature, LivingSocial ran a special today, offering lunches at more than one hundred participating D.C. food joints to customers for a buck.

That's right: One dollar.  That's one hundred pennies.  That's twenty pieces of Bazooka bubble gum.  That's one of those dollar scratch-off lottery tickets that never wins.

The deal was insane, and, we assume, so were the amount of purchases.
