Back in April we learned that Heat Da Spot Coffee and Deli would be replacing the short lived Tibet Shop on Georgia Ave. You can see the progress that’s been made in the photo above – with larger windows added and a new entrance onto the good sized patio space. Looking forward to seeing how the inside turns out too!

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.

14th and S Street, NW

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!
