“1414 14th St. (Sav On Liquor) is boarded up with some construction permits in front (just since yesterday, I think). Do you know if Faces Lounge is still the plan?”
I stopped in and spoke with the owners last weekend and they confirmed the construction is for Faces Lounge which will be located in the basement. If all goes according to plan they hope to open in about three months. Updates when they get closer to opening.

In mid-November we learned that Logan Hardware would be moving from 1416 P Street, NW to 1734 and 1736 14th Street, NW in July. At that time it wasn’t clear when the current occupant of 1736 14th, Point Chaud, would close. Sorry to say that Sunday night was Point Chaud’s last night on 14th just south of S Street. This officially marks the end of the crepe explosion of 2009.

Just wanted to alert you to something disturbing that happened to a friend of mine on Friday night. We were at a bar in Logan Circle, had a few drinks, when all of sudden she got extremely drowsy and went from talking like normal to being basically unconscious within a matter of minutes. Fortunately she was with myself and another friend and we were able to get her out of there and call for help. It sickens me to think of what could have happened if she somehow got separated from us.
As soon as we realized she couldn’t even stand up on her own we got her out of there and called an ambulance. The other disturbing part of the night was how un-seriously the paramedics/hospital staff (GW) treated the fact that she had probably been drugged. I kept explaining to them that I was with her all night, that she literally drank the exact same drinks as myself and our other friend (not like out of the same glass otherwise this would’ve been a different story), and that whatever alcohol she drank was definitely not enough for her to just suddenly go unconscious but everyone kept saying she just drank too much and the police were never brought in. At the hospital I kept asking them to test her for GHB but they told me that I couldn’t request a medical procedure and that testing for that isn’t within their usual blood panel and that she would need to request that test herself (which obviously wasn’t possible). So basically the night went from fun, to scary, to frustrating. Since apparently there’s nothing you can do when you/your friend gets drugged, we decided we should use this experience to warn others to be careful.
I think people getting roofied has been addressed on popville before but maybe it’s time for a little refresher.”
Last week a reader sent word that an enclosed patio area was getting set up at Le Diplomate. Like the way it turned out?
And for those who want to see the sky – looks like they have plenty of heat lamps too:

“I noticed a Zeke’s DC Donutz banner outside Bar di Bari. My wife and I loved Zeke’s and were heartbroken when it unceremoniously closed [2029 P Street, NW]. Will there be donuts soon? I know the two establishments have the same owner, so it’s not entirely surprising. Even more optimistically, could Zeke’s be coming to one of the other nearby retail spaces under construction? Or, most optimistically, replacing Bar di Bari entirely?”

Some interesting news out of the Washington Business Journal on Monday:
“D.C.’s Logan Hardware store has found its next home: Two adjacent rowhouses at 1734 and 1736 14th Street NW. The Ace Hardware affiliate aims to move to its new, larger location in July, right after its current lease expires. The new spot will be 10,000 square feet, significantly larger than the store’s current 6,500 square-foot store at 1416 P Street.”
1734 14th St, NW was previously home to Redeem boutique before they moved up the block. 1736 14th Street is currently home to Point Chaud Cafe and Crepes:

Yesterday we learned Garden District (formerly Standard) would be closing for winter Dec. 8th at 14th and S St, NW. A couple blocks away at 14th and Q St, NW Le Diplomate is taking a different approach. Thanks to @DrewW13 for tweeting us the photo above from the Q Street side:
