I’m still too emotional to talk about the loss of Angles and Little Fountain but it is definitely worth sharing the news from Washington Business Journal:

“Arthur plans to turn the space into full-service Wingo’s on the lower level and a sports bar “with a Wingo’s theme and pub menu” on the upper level, he said via email. He’s aiming to open January 1, 2017.”

You can see Wingo’s Georgetown menu here. Think a sports bar this close to Ventnor (2411 18th St NW) can do well here? Any fans of the wings?

Thanks to a reader for sending word that Quara Ethiopian has opened in the old Felix/NYNY Diva space. Quara’s website says:

“Quara Ethiopian Restaurant is named for the ancient civilization where the modern-day country of Ethiopia is situated – and for the city of Quara, Ethiopia. True to our roots, we prepares traditional recipes from our homeland. Your food is served by first- and-second generation Ethiopians in Washington. Our culture is represented throughout by posters, paintings and music from Africa.

And our menu features many traditional Ethiopian favorites, including Kitfo, a raw beef dish that one that many Westerners are reluctant to try, but then find quite enjoyable!”

Check out their menu here.

“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if you had any info on the huge construction happening at Marie Reed. They’ve been working on it for months and just recently tore out the whole pool. I haven’t heard anything and was wondering what the plans were for it.”

From DGS:

“Opened in 1977, Marie Reed Community Learning Center is a wonderfully diverse school located in the Adams Morgan neighborhood. Marie Reed is proud of its many services, partnerships, and course offerings. We offer English monolingual and English-Spanish Dual Language strands as learning environments for our children. With a robust public health clinic, child care center, adult education, swimming pool and turf field, Marie Reed is a hub of the Adams Morgan neighborhood. The modernization of Marie Reed intends to renovate the existing spaces or build a new school to accommodate not only the needs of its elementary school students, but the needs of the community for years to come.”
