Thanks to all who sent emails about the Washington Business Journal’s article yesterday:

“Owners Gina Schaefer and Marc Friedman have signed a lease for a 5,000-square-foot space at 1700 Columbia Road NW, the site of the former Ontario Theater.

Adams Morgan Hardware will join a [solidcore] Pilates studio that will open in September as well as a still undetermined restaurant.”

From an email:

“Ye olde Black Squirrel village welcomes wenches and princes alike to our Men in Tights Mead Day Renaissance Faire , Saturday, August 1st, starting at 12 noon.

Fasten up your corset, hitch up your tights, and go back in time to merry olde England.

Quench your thirst with a goblet of the finest mead; sate your appetite with a gigantic turkey leg, knave sandwich, or succulent steak-on-a-stake.

Test your skill at the ancient sport of cornhole or indulge in an Elizabethan drinking game.

The long celebrated European tradition of mead-making is experiencing a revival, right here in river city. Guests will be able to sample some of the finest modern mead, including those from:

♦ Charm City Meadery,
♦ Moonlight Meadery,
♦ B. Nektar Meadery, and
♦ Honey Grail Meadery.

A representative from locally based Honey Grail Meadery will be on hand to talk mead making and distribute samples of its Boudica’s Uprising Honey Mead.

Those who arrive dressed as a medieval maiden, Scottish lass, Crusader, or druid– or a kilt flashing in the manner of William Wallace–will receive 10 percent off their bill.

Go on, smite thy thirst”


A reader sends nominates “this tragedy on Ontario between Kalorama and Euclid” for a Horse’s Ass Award. He adds:

“So sad. These homes are about 115 years old. Oh and they’re blocking a fire hydrant. Have been for days. I called the cops and they basically laughed and said I quote “if a house is on fire, then it’s the fire department problem not us” which was awesome and not surprising at all.”
