“Any idea what’s going in across from the looking glass lounge on georgia ave?”
Owner Katy Chang sends us an update on EatsPlace via email:
“EatsPlace is on target for an opening at the end of summer. We’ll be announcing the first chef residencies in the next week or so and posting menus on the blog. We put up coming soon banners (pic above). EatsPlace is a neighborhood restaurant and pop-uppery that hosts chefs through its food incubator program.”
“Collision between H8 metro bus and flatbed truck at New Hampshire and Quincy. Truck knocked well into median. Windshield on bus blown out and serious front end damage. Not sure on injuries, but it was a hard impact.”
Back in March it looked like there was some progress at Taqueria Habanero coming to 14th and Quincy St, NW near Red Derby and Lyman’s. Sadly, the coming soon/viene pronto sign has been removed and it doesn’t look like much work was completed if any. I had high hopes for this spot so hopefully I’m wrong.
I’ve always been fascinated by this bar turned church and since long vacant on Georgia Ave. And I’ve said to myself when this storefront gets renovated – it will mean this section of Georgia Ave will begin to be revitalized. So I did a triple take when I saw the signage above (covering the small Jesus lettering) announcing funding for a new project. Anyway it got me thinking about other symbolic revitalization spots that had been long vacant like the Wonder Bread Factory, Howard Theatre, the Boilermaker Building, Uline arena and others. So what renovated or soon to be renovated vacant building most represents DC’s revitalization to you?
“But Shepherd Street’s residents now face an unexpected obstacle to their environmentalism: pop-up rowhouses potentially blocking their solar panels’ access to sunlight. Two Shepherd Street homeowners with solar panels are especially upset because one rowhouse is slated to grow to three stories right in between them.”
