Thanks to Shane for sending:

“looks like a yoga studio coming to the space between Grand Cata and Jefferson Marketplace on 7th in Shaw”

Ed. Note: Shaw Yoga has just moved to 907 N Street NW. “The entrance to the new Shaw Yoga is directly across from the Sundevich entrance. Naylor Court’s entrance is on 9th Street, between N and O Streets.”

A reader reports just after midnight:

“Car fire at T & Florida NW. Cause unknown.”

Ed. Note: Obviously someone is distraught over the closing of Zenebech. But in all sincerity props to DCFD for the speedy response!

Well look what’s been happening at the old DC Postal (for a hot second) and Capoeira space in Shaw (across from Right Proper Brewing and the Howard Theatre.)

From a press release:

“Derek Brown, Angie Fetherston and Drink Company will bring back Miracle on 7th Street this holiday season, returning even bigger and better than last year’s inaugural, viral sensation that turned the James Beard Award-nominated Mockingbird Hill into an over-the-top pop-up Christmas bar.

Miracle on 7th Street, which included whimsical winter wonderland décor touches like a dreidel chandelier and a nativity scene starring gilded dinosaurs, will take over Mockingbird Hill again — in addition to adjoining bars Eat the Rich and Southern Efficiency for triple the holiday fun.

In addition to the outstanding craft cocktail menu Washingtonians love, Stella Artois and Budweiser have partnered with Miracle on 7th Street to create a new beer cocktail for the themed menu, along with beer inspired swag and other boozy treats.

“Last year was so much fun, it’s hard to imagine how we could make it more fun, but guess what: we will,” says Brown.

Miracle on 7th Street will launch the day after Thanksgiving — Friday, November 25 — and will conclude with a New Year’s Eve bash on Saturday, December 31. More information to come!”
