1539 7th Street, NW

Ed. Note: To properly share how excited folks are about this one – I’d say I got about fifty emails from folks forwarding this news. Normally when folks are excited I’ll get five. This could easily be the most eagerly anticipated (re)opening of 2016.

Also from the Washington Post (and also from Tom Brown, see previous post):

“Brown has signed a lease on a two-story building at 1539 Seventh St. NW, next to Ivy and Coney, and he plans to reopen the Passenger in February 2016.”

The Washington Post reported back in April:

“The menu will be “extensively based in classic cocktails and a smaller number of things we’ve come up with,” Brown says. His dream would be to have a “cocktail catalog” of 50 to 60 drinks, “but I know that could be overwhelming for people. I don’t know how to present that yet.”

Now we know how Brown got the name Left Door:


Genius!! Updates when they get closer to opening.

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.

Ed. Note: When your gardens start to get full of tomatoes, cucumbers, whatever you’re growing – send an email to princeofpetworth@gmail.com with Garden Haul in the title and please include the neighborhood where you grew it.


Above: “Tonight’s dinner harvest! Grown in Petworth, where our tiny cubicle of a garden produces a steady stream of herbs and lettuces, plus tomatoes (5 varieties represented here), peppers, radishes, cucumbers, edamame and eggplant. Grapevine has over 50 clusters of table grapes this year, and we had some blueberries and strawberries. Fig tree sadly froze this winter, but is regenerating from the ground up.”


“this comes from our plot at the LeDroit Park Community Garden.”
