Back in Nov. ’10 we learned that Saki was looking to change its alcohol license:
Expand the licensed premises to include the entire building at 2477 18th Street, N.W. This expansion will include the space at 2473 18th Street, N.W. which is currently occupied by District Lounge & Grille which will cease to operate after approval of the expansion. This expansion will add an additional 120 seats for dining space as well as create 25 seats for summer garden space.
Looks like that expansion has begun. Back in Sept. ’10 we judged Saki.
And in other coming and going news – I just spotted this coming soon sign for Turquoise Jewelry Boutique coming to the basement space at 2118 18th St, NW.
