Burger before the movie? A new liquor license placard has gone up for Tasty Burger – located around the corner from the new Atlantic Plumbing Cinema (opening Oct. 15th):
“New restaurant specializing in burgers, fries, and shakes. Total Occupancy Load of 99 and seating for 56. Entertainment Endorsement to offer occasional acoustical music and similar live entertainment. Summer Garden with seating for 29.”
“Once inside you will quickly find this is no normal headshop. We have something for everyone here.
Island Dyes is home of SYN Glass, the makers of one the best and almost indestructible waterpipes on the market. Don’t stop there though, we have righteous tie dies, bodacious hats and accessories you won’t find anywhere else. Flower power to the people!”
Chester here is a quick kitty and escaped from our apartment yesterday (Sunday) at 100 I Street SE. Anyone in the Navy Yard area, please keep your eyes out! He can be skittish and is not used to being outside. Please contact barry (dot) halvorson (at) gmail (dot) com”
“Washington’s first streetcars trundled down Pennsylvania Avenue during the Civil War. By the end of the century, streetcar lines crisscrossed the city, expanding it into the suburbs and defining where Washingtonians lived, worked and played. From the quaint early days of small horse-drawn cars to the modern streamliners of the twentieth century, John DeFerrari’s new book, Capital Streetcars, tells the story of the dramatic rise and equally dramatic fall of streetcars in our city. John is the author of two previous books about DC history (Lost Washington, DC. and Historic Restaurants of Washington, DC) and is a frequent contributor to PoPville with articles about DC history from his Streets of Washington blog.”
“On Friday, October 2nd, placards were posted at Bar Pilar. We are exploring the opportunity to expand the restaurant to include a roof deck bar area with additional outside seating. Plans for the expansion are still in the very early stages.
Bar Pilar has been a part of the 14th Street community for the past decade, and we take the responsibility of being good neighbors very seriously. We invite our neighbors in the 14th Street corridor to join us at 6pm the evening of November 15th upstairs at the restaurant for an informational open house, where we will happily share plans for the project as it stands now and address any questions or concerns at that time.
In the meantime, we look forward to continuing to provide a great neighborhood spot to eat, drink and gather with friends.”
Thanks to Matthew Orbin for sending. It’s been a long time since we heard anything about Union Social. I had about given them up for dead – but they look real close to opening – even posted their taps on their facebook page:
“Sneak peek of our 20 Tap Beer Selection!”
“Union Social is a DC Metro inspired casual, fine dining restaurant featuring a scratch kitchen and craft bar.”
