Cajun Experience closed in mid-July 2012 at 1825 18th St, NW. In Aug. 2012 we noted the space was for lease. Now I’m hearing Jackie Greenbaum of Jackie’s in Silver Spring and El Chucho in Columbia Heights – is likely opening up a new restaurants here. Details are scarce but more info if/when it becomes available.

Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit.

Walking in here will make you feel like you’ve crossed into another dimension, one in which both time and logic ceases and thousands of years of human advancement towards what is considered civilized behavior is suddenly negated for no apparent reason whatsoever.
You’re greeted by a cop as you walk in and that sets the tone for the type of ride that you’ve unknowingly been in line for since you egressed from your mother’s womb: the world is unstable and this place reeks of crack smoke and decades of failed domestic policies.
All CVS’s are, by default, limited to one star. The lines take forever, everything is overpriced, the CVS card and brand of products are terrible, and the goods and provisions offered are always peculiar.
This store, however, is a social sciences experiment and is brilliant as such. I avoid this place with all of my heart, yet my mind is sadistically drawn here to catch a chaotic glimpse of how close humanity toes a line protecting us from madness.
Is it really that bad?

Not sure if you were aware, but Lauriol Plaza has recently taken over a good chunk of 18th Street to use for their valet parking. There are temporary “no parking” signs up dated until 2014 in front of the restaurant, probably covering about 6-8 spots.
I think that is ridiculous.
Parking is tough enough in the neighborhood, this is only making it worse.
Ed. Note: On Friday a reader wrote about valet parking abuses in Chinatown.
That’s quite a loose interpretation of temporary…

“A pop DOWN! North Capitol and T Stret, NE.
Looks like a ditch was dug around the house, the basement deepened, and a walkout will be created.”
Wild, I wonder how the cost of building a pop down compares with building a pop up?

Back in May 2012 a car drove into the former Labamba Sub Shop at the corner of Georgia and Euclid St, NW. Thanks to a reader for sending word that the interior has been completely gutted. Hopefully something good is coming soon. Stay tuned.
