A reader and patron of Queen Vic passes on from generosity:

“Meet Joe Schinosi:

I work with Joe Schinosi at a bar in DC called the Queen Vic, and would be willing to bet that everyone who has the opportunity to come in and visit him would agree that he is a man of character. Whether he is arguing politics or the best way to educate the youth, chatting about being in the cutting edge music scene and railroad working in Pittsburgh, or asking about how your family is doing, his passion is tangible.

If inclined and able, you can make your donation here.

While his personality is well known, his current status as a man struggling to support his family through medical trial after trial is less known. In 2011, Joe’s wife was diagnosed with type II diabetes. When the recession claimed her job that same year, the family of five had to rely on COBRA medical insurance and Joe’s hard work to make ends meet and keep her healthy. Their nest egg of savings was eaten up after their COBRA insurance expired, just before their daughter Madeleine (then sophomore in college) got very sick with kidney stones and returned home from school. Thirteen months later, Madeleine was diagnosed with lymphoma. (more…)

I believe the expression is boom!

Update: Or potentially boom. Cava Grill updates me via email saying this is not a done deal and that no lease has been signed yet. Updates when/if the deal is sealed.

Ed. Note: Back in March we noted that the building was on the market originally listed at $3,000,000. In July it sold for $1,150,000. Updates as construction progresses for Cava.
