2009 18th Street, NW at California

Well this is interesting, back in September 2017 we posted about Alfresco Tap and Grill’s original liquor license placard:

“New Class “C” Restaurant serving American comfort food and offering alcoholic beverages. Total Occupancy Load of 350. Offering Summer Garden with total capacity of 150 seats.”

A new placard went up over the weekend that says:

“Applicant requests to add a second Summer Garden to their existing Summer Garden endorsement. The second Summer Garden will have seating for 65 patrons on the terrace.”

This is going to be some serious outdoor seating. Sweet. And hopefully construction will start soon – STAY TUNED.

“Dear PoPville,

Need some suggestions from your readership. I live on the first floor of a 4 unit condo building, and my upstairs neighbor frequently enjoys playing his piano. He does have the ability to use headphones, so I don’t always hear the piano itself, but I do get the incessant pounding from him working the pedals. I believe that it already sits on a rug of some sort.

Two questions: does anybody have any particularly effective mitigation strategies? And what’s the best way to politely bring this up?”

“Dear PoPville,

I witnessed something tonight (Tuesday, around 6:45pm) that I wanted to share and get ideas on how to address. I was walking by the 7/11 at Florida and 14th Street and saw a man in a wheelchair attempting to open the ground level door along 14th Street. I went over to help him open it, but found that the door was controlled by the clerk inside and he was waiting for them to answer the bell. (Like in a fancy jewelry store in the movies, you have to be buzzed in.) Except they didn’t buzz him in and the clerks just shrugged him off, making “it’s broken” gestures at us. According to the guy in the wheelchair, the door is frequently “broken” and he’s not often not able to get inside.

This is ridiculous, offensive, and (I think) illegal. I’m calling DCRA and Councilmember Nadeau’s office. I heard back from Briane this morning – they’re aware of and they’ve notified the store that they’re in violation of federal and local laws. Yet it seems to continue. I wanted to ask if anyone else has experienced/witnessed this behavior and if you have any ideas on what else we can do to stop it.”
