Eating Again!

As the yearly Ramadan dawn til dusk fast comes to an end, restaraunts around the area fill up with hungry people. The Big Marina Grill and Deli in Columbia Heights was prepared on Friday. Last year, the restaraunt had a 2+ hour waiting period. This year they erected an enormous tent to accomodate more people.
Ramadan is a religous Muslim tradition. The twin cities have a vast Muslim community. The post-fast feast is a huge deal for a lot of restaraunts around the area.
The sources in this story include restaraunt owners and patrons. The combination of the two gave the story an overall well rounded voice.
