It was a good run for the Wydown Coffee Bar at 1320 U St, NW. This was their last weekend on U Street but fortunately they’ll be reopening in their permanent digs early next year in the new Louis Building on 14th Street just south of U Street.

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.

City Tap House DC is located in the former 901 Restaurant space. You can see their dinner menu here.
Lots of details rom a press release:
“Owner Frank Falesto is giving DC foodies one more reason to dine at the highly anticipated restaurant City Tap House DC at 901 9th Street, NW, Washington, DC, 20001, adjacent to the new City Center. The beer centric restaurant will serve refined American pub fare for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch on Saturday and Sunday. City Tap House has also tapped Andy Farrell as Beer Director of its enticing program. Guests can anticipate over 40 beer lines and two beer engines which will afford the new restaurant the opportunity to feature over 60 different local, domestic and European craft beers available by the draft and bottle. A variety of seasonal and special edition releases will be available throughout the year. Prices range from $6 to $10 for draft and will vary by the bottle based on format, and for wine and cocktail fans, an international and eclectic selection of wine and handcrafted libations will also be available.
The wealth of great local and regional breweries gives City Tap House great sourcing opportunities for creating outstanding events, and for putting its philosophy on craft beer into motion. “The beer program is at the heart of what we offers our valued guests,” says Andy Farrell. “We want it to be approachable, unpretentious and community driven. We strive for our guests to have a well-rounded dining experience using beer and food to elevate each other. Dining at City Tap House should be about discovery and good times shared with good people.” (more…)

Nice. From Gingertown’s website:
“It’s not just Santa’s little elves that are hard at work at Christmas time. It’s architects too! Founded in 2006 by David M. Schwarz Architects, GINGERTOWN is a one-of-a-kind holiday initiative that brings together the leading architects, designers, and architectural firms in the D.C. area with building enthusiasts – young and old – to create a town made of completely of ginger bread. And, it’s all for a good cause.
The hand crafted structures are then donated and put on display at local hospitals, health care facilities and community support organizations to help spread the message of joy and hope during the holidays. Recipients of the buildings have included: National Children’s Medical Center, the Washington Home, Martha’s Table and Hannah House.”
