3301 Georgia Avenue, NW

From Nekisha Durrett:

“Thanks to generous funding from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, my mural The Wait can now be viewed on the facade of Mothership Diner in DC. Please join me at Mothership Diner on Thursday, February 19th from 6-7PM to properly celebrate the mural. I will also screen a short documentary film that explores my piece, my creative process, and the ever changing neighborhood of Park View. I collaborated with the very talented and inspired local filmmaker, Lorie Shaull, to document the production of the mural and its community impact. She captured a splendid snapshot of Park View and my foray into public art. AND also on view will be several photographs by two of my photography students from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts Museum Studies program, Kenyssa Evans and Tayvon Taylor who signed on to further document the project.

Late notice, I know – but REALLY hope to see you THIS Thursday. It will also be one of the last times to enjoy this warm neighborhood haunt as, sadly, it will be closing its doors on Sunday, February 22nd.”

2928 Georgia Ave, NW – Originally Everlasting Life before becoming Woodland’s

Flying high off their visit from Kanye and Kim – Woodland’s Vegan tweets us:

“@PoPville Woodlands Vegan Bistro Changes Name to NuVegan Café, Franchises and Open Second Location!”

Their press release says:

“Yes, it is true. One might ask; “Why another name change?” Change often equals progress and elevation for a much bigger and greater cause. Woodland’s Vegan Bistro will immediately introduce their new, second location as NuVegan Café while their Washington, D.C., location will gradually make the new name transition over the next few months. The change is the result of their exciting and historical venture of becoming one of the very first vegan restaurants of its caliber to franchise. Franchising will be finalized by the end of this second quarter. With respect to animals, the environment and good health, NuVegan Café uses the freshest plant derived foods to carefully create and invent vegan cuisine full of comfort and satisfaction.

While they have a new name, slogan and logo the great aspects about the restaurant that many have grown to love will remain unchanged. They are still committed to providing exceptional and nutritious meal options for everyone. This is still your home away from home where you can come and enjoy exceptional service and a delicious meal with family, friends and co-workers. The food truck still travels throughout the DMV area conveniently catering to the needs of local residents. The menu still includes their award-winning macaroni and cheese, collard greens, cornbread, crab cake sandwich with desserts like sweet potato cheesecake and specialty drinks including their famous Tropical Delight Smoothie.

Thanks to a reader for sending word from earlier in the week. Woodland’s Facebook has a couple of photos posted Jan. 25th:

“They could have chosen to eat anywhere, but they chose us. ‪#‎WoodlandsVeganBistro‬ ‪#‎GoVegan‬ ‪#‎NuVeganCafe‬ ‪#‎KayneWest‬ ‪#‎KimK‬ ‪#‎BETHonors2015‬”

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, it’s pretty cool. Must be something about vegan restaurants attracting the power players – back in October Stevie Wonder visited Evolve Vegan in Takoma.

Side note: New condo next door to Woodland’s is looking good too on the 2900 block of Georgia Avenue, NW:

“New neighborhood restaurant/lounge offering light snacks and recorded music. No nude performances. Total Occupancy Load of 97 with seating for 86 inside the premises. Summer Garden with seating for 63.”

Back in August I had heard some scuttlebutt that this could become a high end fried chicken pop up but I’m not sure if that is still a plan but the most recent scuttlebutt I heard about this project – it could be coming from the same folks behind Sundevich in Shaw. Could be BBQ too. Stay tuned…
