Chinese Menu Comedy:

“Congrats to @federalistpig on a big opening weekend! Sold out of food is a helluva thing at 7PM. Welcome to the hood. We will be in soon.”

I took the photo below Saturday morning – they anticipated correctly:

“The construction on Columbia Road in Adams Morgan has been starting at about 6:30am each morning–jack hammering, bulldozering, etc. Adams Morgan clearly has strict noise regulations since the new hotel will not be allowed to have a public rooftop, but what are the effects of the regulations on early morning construction noise? Are there DC regulations about what time noisy construction can begin?”

“The 12 (Or More) Beers of Christmas at The Black Squirrel, Friday, Dec. 9th
Starting at 5:00 p.m.

On the ninth day of December, your true love sent to you: five Christmas Ales, four winter warmers, nine ladies dancing, and one Black Squirrel. It is that time of year again — time to shout to the skies and have a glass, or three, of holiday cheer at The Black Squirrel on Friday and Saturday (December 9th and 10th).

A little over a week ago I shared the great news that the former Döner Bistro space (previously Shawarma King) would become a BBQ spot from the original pit master at the original DCity Smokehouse. Now we know the name – Federalist Pig – Que 4 the People.

Take a peek at the menu here.

Their facebook says:

“Federalist Pig is a regional American barbecue restaurant in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC.

From Festivus to a Living Blog the kiosk now offers a chance for those who wish to thank 44.

“Dear PoPville,

Adams Morgan spent the thanksgiving holiday thinking of what they are thankful for…then created a way for the community to share their thoughts. The kiosk at 18th and Columbia, NW is now covered in blackboard and ready to go. Chalk provided. Here is what the first person wrote.”

“Dear PoPville,

I was going to book some classes at Bits of Thread, a sewing shop in AdMo that offers great how-to classes, as Christmas gifts but it looks like they’re going under. I’m so bummed! Wishing the best for the owner and all the staff.

“In a creative business like this where overhead is high and margins are low, going through such a slowdown pushed things underwater very quickly. I tried as much as I could to keep things afloat for the sake of our students and the creative community in DC, but unfortunately these efforts were not enough and it is time to let go. Our last day of classes will be December 17th, 2016.”
