You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.

From Veritas’ facebook page:

“It is sad to say that after almost 7 years, it is time for Veritas Wine Bar to say goodbye. Our last day will be Saturday August 2nd. Thanks to all our wonderful guests, amazing suppliers, winery friends, and our staff that have made it a great run. See you for a glass before we go!”

‏@barredindc hears it could be replaced by something called McClellan’s Retreat. Updates when more info is known on the replacement.

Were there any fans of Veritas?

If you have a great haul, beautiful tomato or something like that, send an email and a couple photos to princeofpetworth(at)gmail with your neighborhood and garden haul in the subject line and I’ll pick a few winners a week (free PoPville t-shirt or tote bag.)
