Big, if you frequent Barracks Row, news from Barred in DC:

Molly Malone’s is now called Finn McCool’s, which was the name of the bar that previously occupied the space before Molly’s opened in 2009. Pacifico Cantina is now Tio Javier.

In addition, Chesapeake Room closed for renovations (a similar fate befell Lola’s earlier this year). Even Senart’s Oyster House changed its last part of its name to Grille Room (from Chop House).”


This house is located at 1519 North Carolina Avenue, Northeast. The listing says:

“Cute & Cozy, Condo Alternative, Open LR/DR/Kit, w/ Coffee Bar, Granite and Hwd Cabinets, Stainless Appliances, Hwd Flrs, Stairs up to 2 bedrooms, Pocket door to Bath, Skylight, ceiling fan, paver covered back yard, has potential OSP, Central Air & Heat!
