Custom Fuel opened in Dupont in June 2014.

Thanks to a couple readers for sending word:

“Yet another restaurant in that dreaded corner that appears to be closing. The inside looks mostly cleared out and they’ve removed the pizza oven. I took a picture of some things stacked up — no sign, but it seems to be closing. If it’s not closing it could be trying to deal with the rumored rats that infest those buildings.”


“Custom fuel on Connecticut Ave, formerly Potbelly, has closed today. There is something going on with the building. They were recently doing construction this week to the old Sprint store. Wonder if they were overrun by rats? It still think that’s why Potbelly’s closed.”

The official word from Custom Fuel via email:

“Unfortunately, we found that this particular Custom Fuel did not fit the needs of the neighborhood so we’ve chosen to close up shop. We’d like to thank the DuPont Circle community for its support and business. Please visit our other nearby Custom Fuel locations at 2301 Georgia Ave NW and 1747 Pennsylvania Ave NW.”

@breadandbrew tweeted yesterday:

“True last call! All drinks $1 including top shelf, draft beer, free pizza ..while supplies last. Thank you for 6 wonderful years.”

Bread & Brew opened up in the former Greek carryout back in 2009. Barred in DC noted:

“The closing is not a surprise to sharp-eyed watchers of the real estate scene; the building that houses DC Bread and Brew was acquired in fall 2014 to be razed for a new office building, as reported by the Washington Business Journal.”

Plans are for a new office building with retail. Updates when construction starts.

RIP Bread & Brew – you were pretty damn cool.



“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday (Monday, February 16th), around 12 noon, our dog (pictured) was attacked by another dog inside the S Street dog park. The dog that attacked her was a tricolored Australian shepherd. (Our dog also happens to be a miniature tricolored Australian Shepherd…I figured I’d state this just to prevent any confusion.)

The dog latched on to our dog’s backside the moment after we entered. We weren’t sure whether or not the attack resulted in a full “bite” but, sure enough, found out that indeed a bite did occur during attack after visiting the vet.

Please let us know if you have any information to help us locate the owner.

We want to contact the owner to ask about the health of his dog and let him know that indeed our dog was bitten. He did hang around to make sure we were okay after the attack but we were in shock and forgot to ask for his information.

Please email me at finddogownerdc@gmail.com”

Thanks to a reader for passing on from the DC Snowball Fight Association:

“At laaast, the DC area is about to get in on some of that significant snow that New England seemingly has been keeping all to itself so far this winter… And yes, for us, that can only mean two words.


For the first time since last March, we urge the snowballers of the District to reconvene for a benevolent battle in the beloved birthplace of our movement, Dupont Circle Park, at 11am on Tuesday. An hour or two beforehand, we’ll post an update here on the status of the Park, just so that we know whether conditions are ripe. And we hope you can join us afterward for lunch and drink specials at James Hoban’s Irish Restaurant & Bar, which is reserving a room and offering a prize for the best (read: craziest?) dressed snowballer! (more…)
