“We feed people. We’re a full service restaurant and cafe. Mornings offer up Hawthorne Fine Breakfast Pastry and Vigilante Coffee. DELISH! Lunch, come in for a panini, salad or great house made soups. Happy Hour on Tuesday and Wednesday from 4-7. Dinnertime – Belgian beers, nice wine selection and hearty yummy meals. Thats what we do. When you think you’re done, check out the dessert case. House made chocolates, mousse cakes and an array of pastries make it hard to stop at just dinner. Dessert is a must.”
Thanks to the folks at Potter’s House for letting us know:
“You had a post late last year about The Potter’s House closing for renovations. Wanted to let you know that construction on the renovations has started at The Potter’s House. We plan to reopen in September.”
“When we re-open in 2014, our cafe will have a whole new style. While remaining affordable and accessible, we will have an increased focus on the health of our bodies and the food system as a whole.
We are working with the Food Works Group to develop a seasonally rotating menu that is sourced from local farmers and producers. Everything is still in the works, but you can expect sandwiches, salads, soups and sides with a Southern accent.
We are in conversation with some of the country’s leading coffee roasters about sourcing direct trade beans for our espresso and pour over coffee program. The Potter’s House was one of the first spots in DC to offer espresso, and we are excited to return to this tradition of hospitality.”
“We are an independent bookstore with a special emphasis on spirituality, social issues, and cultural studies. Our curated collection also includes a selection of literature, poetry, and children’s books.
While the bookstore is closed for renovations, we can still fulfill special orders. To place an order, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202.232.5483.
When we return in 2014, we will have regular author events and reading groups, a selection of handmade gifts and cards, and an IndieBound online bookstore complete with e-books, essential reading lists, and reviews.”
“Hey guys we are indeed doing a “soft opening” opening this weekend as DC’s first vape lounge! Stop in, check us out and let us know what you think. We’ve got starter kits, rebuildables, accessories and a great initial selection of juices. You can come in, sample flavors and products and see what vaping is all about!”
“At approximately 0115 hours, Third District units were called to the front of 2406 18th Street NW ( NY NY Diva) for a report of a fight in progress. Units were able to respond and find 7 males fighting each other. The officers were able to stop the fight and place all 7 participants under arrest without further incident. Further investigation revealed that all 7 were possibly patrons and or employees of the listed establishment and that the altercation may have started inside. If anyone has information relating to this they are encouraged to call (202) 727 9099.”
I live in the Dorchester House and I’ve been trying to find out more information about the apartments they are building in our former parking lot. The last article I can find about it is from 2013 – and none of the sites I find even list the developer.”
“Dorchester House is a 117-unit addition to an existing nine-story concrete building. Built above a two-story below grade parking garage, the studio, one- and two-bedroom luxury apartment community is conveniently located within blocks of the National Zoo and the heart of Adams Morgan. Community amenities include a rooftop terrace and clubroom, fitness center, and ground-floor courtyard area with gazebo.
Completion: January 2015”
I walked by over the weekend and the addition is around the corner from the main Dorchester House on 17th Street near the Harris Teeter.
