“I support that message, btw. McMillan is literally just a sand wasteland. Let’s turn it into something useful.”

“Does anyone know what happened to the tiny free library on Florida Ave at First St NW? It’s been a few weeks since I noticed it’s absence, and I’m beginning to strongly suspect that my partner’s assurances it was “away for repairs” is more like “living on a farm up north with lots of space to run.” As of last night, some intrepid book trader had simply left some books on the remaining post where the library used to sit.”

From an email:

“The Pub & The People has just hired rising star sous chef Ben Schramm from one of DC’s top restaurants, Proof!

Schramm studied culinary arts at L’Academie de Cuisine in Gaithersburg, MD, and launched his culinary career at Proof, rising from salad station worker to executive sous in that time, working closely under executive chef Haidar Karoum. Schramm is thrilled to join the P&P team, and has big plans for the Pub’s menu, adding inventive food while still continuing the inclusive, neighborhood atmosphere. Schramm is excited to pair his love for his own local watering hole with his passion for creativity in cooking.”

From Boundary Stone:

“It has been an amazing 5 years for our Boundary Stone family! We have had such a great time growing with our surrounding communities! Thank you to all friends new and old who have supported us along the way!

We decided this landmark birthday deserved something special, so we asked our friends at DC Brau Brewing Company to brew us a celebratory ale! With 5 varietals of hops chosen by the Boundary Stone team, “5 Spot” was born!

This crushable session IPA will be exclusive to Boundary Stone and as a thank you to you will be sold for $5 per pint while supplies last!

We also decided such an occasion deserved some seriously funky tunes! Our good friends AZTEC SUN obliged and will be bringing the FUNK to the party!

So please come on by, grab a “5 Spot,” share some memories and talk about the next 5 years!”

Wicked Weed is a small family run brewery out of Asheville North Carolina. Its brewery puts out some of the most sought after beers in the US. Up until this month they have not distributed to DC, that changed last week though and we are pumped to have them on! We will be pouring 10 of their rarest brews and funked sours on Friday starting at 1pm. We will also have one of the Brewmasters in house to answer any questions you may have.”
