“Town Danceboutique, Shaw’s iconic Gay super-club, at the corner of 8th and U, has opened a brand new stunning outdoor Patio this year. The expansive 4000 square foot outdoor space is a remarkably unique, comfortable, and an amazingly appointed outdoor full service bar serving drinks six days a week (closed Mondays). There are multiple draft beer selections, a fully stocked bar, (and, at times, an on premise food truck with it’s service window right on the Patio.) The Patio is open during the week (Tuesday-Thursday) at 6pm for happy hour and evening drinks, at 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays for daytime fun in the sun, and of course, the Patio is open on Friday and Saturday nights to create an even more dynamic, multi-faceted experience at Town. Tuesdays are Yappy Hour – a special event for guests that want to bring their dogs and enjoy the happy hour specials.

The Patio’s extensive landscaping, misting system, and bar design provides relief on hotter days…and multiple heating units make it comfortable on cooler spring and fall nights. In addition to landscaping that includes Crepe Myrtle and Japanese Elm trees, the Patio was designed using re-purposed, 100 year old barn wood from the midwest and 100 year old ceiling beams that were salvaged from the newly renovated Chocolate Factory downtown.

In a city that loves it’s outdoor bar spaces, the Town Patio is a special place with a unique design, an easygoing staff, and a perfect location.”

From the photos it looks like it’s already become a moderately popular spot…

“I have had a few Burglary 1’s in the Petworth area where someone is going in at night while people are sleeping just taking wallets and purses occasionally small laptops or cell phones.”

The subject was subsequently captured by surveillance cameras.

Neighborhood meeting for the Farmers’ Market at 14th and Kennedy

“I received a note from the 14th and Kennedy Street Farmers’ Market last week, inviting all to a meeting “to address concerns residents have expressed.” (I live less than a block from the market; I don’t know how widely these flyers were distributed.) The neighborhood meeting is Thursday, July 2 at 7pm in the basement community room at the Madison Terrace Cooperative, 1365 Kennedy Street.

An image of the friendly invitation (written in both English and Spanish) is attached. Given the recent lively discussion on PoPville about this Farmers’ Market, I thought people might be interested.”
