Holy canoli – finally a new tenant for the Ohio Restaurant. Ed. Note: Somebody must save those signs!! Just saw this sign for Oh Zone Lounge in the front door:


It’s not clear if these are the real menus or just a place holder but it’s on the website listed in the sign. Updates when they get closer to opening.

The Bayou: DC’s Joint

A decade since the last lusty notes stroked the irreverent, iconic Georgetown music hall, tales and echoes linger…. From murder to redemption, from jazz to rock and roll, from striptease to Kiss, from Mister T to misadventure … the documentary, like The Bayou itself, will arouse the senses….

Foreigner made its club debut there…. The Bayou encompassed U2′s first American show, Bono and mates opening for the Slickee Boys; Billy Joel’s live cuts that shaped the album “Songs in the Attic”; Bruce Springsteen’s unexpected appearance during a Robbin Thompson concert, and so much more …. Kiss had the amps so juiced that areas of the city lost electricity.

WHO: Admission is free and donations are always welcome and appreciated

WHAT: The Bayou: DC’s Killer Joint (2013) – FREE outdoor movie
Gates open at 7 with a DJ playing until film begins.

Timber Pizza food truck from Union Kitchen will donate a % of sales to Friends of Harrison Recreation Center.

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.

“Metro will host a series of public hearings between September 15 and October 2 to solicit input on proposed bus service changes that will enhance service for many customers. The Metrobus service adjustments are designed to increase overall on-time performance and customer satisfaction, while helping to increase ridership and improve cost efficiency.

The current proposal includes input gathered through service evaluation, priority corridor studies, customer surveys, and feedback from customers and the jurisdictions. Customer input through public hearings will help shape the final plan before it is implemented.

The public hearings will be preceded by an Open House period that will begin at 6:00 p.m., and the formal Public Hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m. The Public Hearing portion of the sessions will provide an opportunity for comment on the docket of proposed Metrobus service changes. All service change proposals in the docket are eligible for comment at any of the six Hearing locations.

For complete information, please see the Public Hearing Docket.
