This could be a terrible dagger for H Street if permanent:

“Dear PoPville,

Thought you’d be interested in news from H Street that the Argonaut was closed and padlocked with a no trespassing sign last night (Sunday). No official word, but the manager Shaaren’s latest tweet suggests it could be bad.”

Thanks to Adam for sending word about the newest Compass Coffee location. Last week we noted La Colombe’s quest for coffee domination with their coming location at the old Dickey’s Frozen Custard space on I Street, NW. Obviously that aggression could not stand unchecked so stay tuned for lots of great coffee options on I Street very soon.
