Last week we learned the name of the new restaurant coming to Shaw from the chef and owner of Mintwood Place – Convivial. And now they’ve already posted a liquor license placard at the corner of 8th and O Street, NW – part of the City Market at O development. The placard says:
“This is new restaurant with a sidewalk café and summer garden serving modern American cuisine for all ages. Total # of seats is 170 and the occupancy Load is 170. Total # of summer garden seats is 54. Total # of sidewalk café seats is 10.”
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.
New full-service hotel with two restaurants featuring meeting and event spaces, gym, spa and swimming pool. Dancing and live entertainment will be offered for booked events such as wedding receptions. Roof top summer garden seating 460 patrons. Hotel has approximately 220 rooms.”
Over the years I’ve had tons of emails asking/applauding about the crosswalk at 14th and S St, NW. If memory serves (maybe textdoc can find it in the archives) this was an experimental crosswalk by DDOT that never got implemented any other streets. Folks def. love it though. So I was sad to see half of it had already been paved over. Enjoy the other half while it lasts!

And next door Dancing Crab has posted a liquor license placard amendment that says:
“The change is for an expansion of seating to the 3rd floor. The addition of summer gardens on the second floor and on the rooftop of the 3rd floor seating of 42. The addition of an enclosed Sidewalk Café, 20 seats. The seating capacity is 165 of which 42 are Summer Gardens/rooftop and the total capacity is 218.”
If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. 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. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
